Almost five stars, but... ...there are a couple of bugs. 1st bug: If you change the pattern length to 12, it doesn't join patterns properly, it seems to think the length is still 16, and it repeats bits to fill in the gap. 2nd bug: Copy instrument crashes the app. Other than these two issues, it is by far the best music creation app for small devices. You can write music on your little 4 inch screen while walking down the street. You could say this of a couple of other apps, but nanoloop is the most feature rich.
Amazing program Really is capable of a lot if you learn how to use it. It's so well organized it's blows me away
Fantastic Beautiful app, simple UI that works even on small screens. Excellent help documentation. Well worth the price. Thank you!
Since the last update its sweet! Its a great design for touch devices. You can make it sound really relaxing and heavenly or metallic and dirty. The sequencer has loads of tweakability for every step of the sequence. I love it overall. I'd love it if there could be more than 8 patterns for each channel though. 8 is not much. How about 128? Also vibrato would be awesome. I'd like to say, its the first nanoloop that has solid BPM timing so its great for sampling out into other apps or itself for that matter. It has FM, Square and sampler. Possibilities are intriguing. High BPMs possible. Nice. Five, but hope for more updates.
If you have any desire to play around with synthesizers and make some music, this is a great place to start. This program has a really slick interface. The documentation is decent, but it still takes a bit of experimentation to get familiar with it. One helpful new feature is being able to hold on any symbol to see what it is for. Once you've got the hang of it, it's really fun to use. It has some great potential, judging by what I and other people have been able to create with it. Great sampling capabilities and easy export and sharing are nice features. This is a great value for what you're getting. There have been a lot of improvements made since I bought it a few years ago, and I get the feeling that that level of support and development will continue.
Great Very nice, minimal interface that was pretty quick to learn. Once you know to swipe, you're pretty much set. Haven't used it for long but seems to be great for tinkering and serious stuff alike. Nice work.
- New filter model: Closer to the original / Game Boy version.
- Fixed bug that prevented filenames with double spaces from loading.
The new filter will slightly change sounds: Resonance is stronger at lower cutoff and bass sounds have a wider cutoff range. It may be necessary to reduce resonance and to lower cutoff / lfo amount.
- Exported song length corrected.
- Occasional crashes when recording samples fixed.
