Loopy just got some social skills

Still got some love for Loopy! I’ve just released Version 1.6, which (uh, finally!) adds support for the iOS share sheet, bringing support for Facebook sharing, AirDrop, Messages, Mail, Dropbox, and opening in any compatible app.

Should make it a bit easier to get your creations out of Loopy and into the world.

Now back to working on Masterpiece Edition. Will have some stuff to show off soon.

I’ve been spending some time with renowned live-looper and all round cool dude Dub Fx, talking about Loopy Masterpiece and future projects. Along the way, we made an awesome App Preview video for Loopy on the App Store. Here’s something else we shot at the same time.

Loopy update and the launch of Ableton Link!

Loopy’s been updated!

First of all: Reverb. Loopy now has reverb FX, which you can tweak in Settings. Think of it as a very modest little preview of things to come in Loopy Masterpiece Edition.

But the most exciting thing is that the update introduces support for Ableton Link which has launched today and – I kid you not – it’s going to change the way people make music and play together.

Ableton Link is a new technology that lets you play in time with multiple iOS apps and iOS devices, and multiple instances of Ableton Live music software over a wireless network. If you’ve used MIDI sync before, you get the general idea, but this is a totally different animal, and is simply effortless to use. The Link team have done a fantastic job.

Here’s Jakob Haq describing how it works in combination with Audiobus:

You can see the other Audiobus-compatible apps that support Link over on the Audiobus Compatible Apps Directory; subscribe to the email list there to be notified as new Link-compatible apps arrive.

As for Loopy: you can grab the update in the usual place, on the App Store. If you don’t yet own a copy, it’s 25% off right now, too. The same goes for Audiobus!

A few people mentioned that they wanted to see the technical stuff that I discarded from the last video. I promise nothing, but here it is, sans-Benny Hill theme music.
