Caelum Audio, who brought us the free Tape Cassette last week, just released One Loop! This is the second looper to come out this week! Version 1.0 of One Loop can only be used standalone with hardware inputs, or the iDevice mic, but they've promised AUv3 will be a part of version 1.1, in the near future.
One Loop is free to download, with a $4 unlock In-App Purchase.
One Loop App Store Description:
One Loop is a 10-track loop-station designed for singers, songwriters & instrumentalists. Whether you want a personalised backing track, or need to record an idea for your next big hit, One Loop brings performance and recording straight to your phone.
• Simple, easy to use looping.
• Built-in studio quality effects: Noise Gate, EQ, Compression & Reverb.
• Advanced layer control and grouping.
• Metronome selection with a variety of backing percussion.
• MIDI support and mappable control for hands free performance.
• Supports external audio interfaces; up to 8 channels of audio input.
Whether you choose your device’s built-in microphone for quick and easy use, or an external interface for multiple routing options, One Loop encourages portable creativity. Don’t be restricted by the limitations of a computer when all you need is your phone… and something to record!
Enjoy the app’s seamless looping and build up to 10 beautiful layers with ease. Save your projects for later reference, you’ll never forget those 3am ideas ever again! Make sure to wear headphones for clean recordings with no feedback issues.
One Loop gives you complete control to form your best ideas. Each layer is mute-able and has an adjustable volume slider to shape your overall sound. Assign each layer to a bank of 4 groups (A to D) for quick variation of instrumentation, or different sections of a song.
Setup your Bluetooth or USB midi devices and assign their parameters to trigger any of One Loop’s functions for greater control and smooth performances.
Manage Your Mix
One Loop gives you the controls to refine your recordings with studio quality effects designed by audio engineers: Noise Gate, EQ, Compression and Reverb.
Wherever you’re recording, either in a quiet room or a busy outdoor environment, you can reduce any unwanted noise by adjusting the Noise Gate’s threshold and envelope, to create cleaner recordings.
Boost or Cut the Input’s EQ frequency bands (Low, Mid and High) with a +/- 15dB range to shape the sound of your loop layers.
Adjust the acoustic environment of your mix, from a small garage to a large cathedral, by changing the size & effect percentage of the Reverb.
Settle a busy, complex layered mix using the Bus Compressor’s threshold and ratio controls.
