The interface has been simplified and in most cases, a long press on an icon reveals info and/or a menu.

The Synth

Nanoloop's FM synth offers a maximum of flexibility within a small set of parameters. It comes with a stereo modulator detune effect and covers the typical clean bells and Rhodes-like sounds, spheric pads, thick beats and basses and all kinds of exotic sounds and noises.

The Sequencer

The stepsequencer visualises the rhythmic structure in a compact 4x4 square matrix, which makes it very easy to lay out patterns.

The Sampler

Besides A/D envelope, loop function and start offset, the puristic sampler comes without effects. You can record up to 6 seconds via microphone or load samples from SD-Card (WAV with 8, 22, 44 or 48 KHz).

Note: Nanoloop does not need an internet connection. It does perform a license check though during the first 10 minutes via internet when running for the first time. Once the check was successful, the result is stored locally permanently and you can work offline.

Edit: gotten the hang of /dir feature :) now time to organize my samples. Really starting to master FM bass! Have been a Nanoloop user for 10 years now and don't plan on changing that! However these newer updates (using /dir on Android) aren't necessarily the most intuitive or functional. I Miss the previous function for searching samples and projects. And sometimes my app crashes and it's never happened before. Is there a way to revert to the original version before this newest update?

The update was necessary because the app was not compatible with newer Android versions anymore. The old file browsing function does not work with new Android file access policy. Selecting a working directory is a compromise but still better than the system's file picker functions. I'm sorry for crashes, will try to fix asap.

Really fun little app with an intuitive interface. Probably powerful enough that you could make pretty nice sounding music out of it, but I think it's probably better for building little jams in spare time. Synth engines sound good, and sample recirding is also not bad. I do wish that I could apply filters etc to samples, and I'd love more freedom to drive parameters with LFOs, but otherwise great. Creativity loves constraints as they say.
