Quantiloop was released just about six months ago – and reviewed here on the Music App Blog – and provides a very impressive addition to the cluster of looper-style apps that are available under iOS (for example, Loopy HD, Loopr, Voice Jam Studio, LooperSonic, LoopTree, Group The Loop and Ostinator).
Stephan Marx has bought a distinctive retro design that looks very ‘hardware’ in nature and, as this gives the app a very distinctive feel and mode of operation, I suspect it will give it particular appeal to those with experience of floor-mounted hardware looper pedals. As I reported at the end of January, the app had a significant update to v.2.0 and this bought a refresh of the UI, the number of looper slots was been doubled from two to four making much more ambitious live looping arrangements a possibility.
And you still get the dedicated rhythm track on top of this and, combined with the included IAA hosting and various types of sync – including Ableton Link – you could, for example, host a suitable drum/groovebox app within Quantiloop and sync its playback with that of your loops.
Anyway, as I reported a few days ago, Stephan released an update to Quantiloop taking the app to v.2.0.2 and adding some new features and performance tweaks. And, on the back of that update, he has very kindly provided me with five copies of the app to giveaway to readers here at the Music App Blog. As usual with the giveaways I run on the blog, the deal is simple; get your name in the hat and see if it gets pulled out.
You can enter the draw in one of two ways.
- First, if you just want to enter this draw, then use the Contact Us page to leave your details before 10 pm (GMT) on Thursday, 16th March, 2017 Make sure to enter ‘Quantiloop’ in the message subject line.
- Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future app giveaway run on the site – then sign up for the Music App Blog email list before the deadline. All members of the list will automatically be entered in every draw. You can sign up here and, as a bonus for signing up, you also get a copy of the Music App Blog’s ‘25 iOS music apps to get you started‘ guide. And if you are already signed up for the email newsletter, then consider yourself entered :-)
As soon as I can organise after entries close, I’ll draw a suitable number of names at random from all those entered. I’ll then notify the lucky winners by email and include the details required to download your free copy. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to download ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.
For potential purchasers, at UK£9.99/US$9.99, Quantiloop offers a fairly easy way into looper technology that mimics the world of the hardware looper with the convenience (and price) of an iOS music app…. well worth a look…. as is the user demo video embedded below that shows the new version of Quantiloop in action embedded into a live performance rig. Feel free to check out the post on the v.2.0 update which aded a whole range of new features and then hit the download button to find out more….. Oh, and get your name in the hat :-)
