Quantiloop for iOS promises flawless looping on the fly

Ever struggled with keeping those loops in time and trimmed to perfection? Well help is at hand in the form of Quantiloop, a new 2-channel looping pedal for iOS which will quantise your audio on the fly.

The looper will work with a MIDI pedal, but if you don't happen to have one to hand (or foot) then you can make use of the auto-record and pre-roll record functions.

Endless layers of overdubs can be created over the two tracks and any mistakes can be rectified with the undo/redo function.

If you are already running an iOS rig for your guitar or productions, then Quantiloop will slot right in with its Audiobus, Inter-App-Audio and Ableton Link compatibility.

Quantiloop is compatible with iPad 2, iPad Mini and later (iPad Retina or higher recommended) and requires iOS 8.0 or later.

The app is available on the Apple App Store now for £7.99/$9.99. For more information, check out the Quantiloop website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
