Software artisan company A Tasty Pixel today announces that its widely-praised live-looping app, Loopy, will be on sale for the duration of the holiday period, at 30% off the iPhone version, and 50% off the iPad/Universal version. The app allows anyone to create music by layering looped recordings of singing, beatboxing, or playing an instrument in a sleek, tactile interface that combines power with simplicity.
“This looper app might just change the whole game,” said popular bass website No Treble recently, “The app offers great features, like pan, volume, timing adjustments, track merging, tempo adjustments and even MIDI over Bluetooth or WiFi, to sync up with other devices or apps.”
Loopy empowers musicians to create by recording and layering, with up to twelve beautifully-rendered circular loops featuring overdubbing, count-in, count-out and record chaining. Users can import loops from a computer, or from other apps with integrated MAPI AudioPaste, and fit loops to the beat, no matter what tempo. A host of track features including full stereo audio with pan controls, track merging, configurable fade in or out, and live, dynamic tempo adjustment allow a wide range of expression. Whole performances can be captured with in-app session recording facilities, and recordings or individual tracks can be shared via SoundCloud, Twitter, Facebook or via email, or exported to many other audio apps with MAPI AudioCopy.
Loopy can be used with other equipment such as foot pedal MIDI controllers, or software such as Ableton Live or other compatible iOS apps, with its industry-standard MIDI support which provides sophisticated MIDI control and clock synchronization.

Loopy HD, the iPad and Universal version of the app, is available for $3.99 (normally $7.99) through the App Store.
