The iPad’s larger screen puts all of Looptastic’s realtime performance controls into a single window, making mixing more intuitive and tactile. Now the loop browser, X-Y effects pad, scratch strip, crossfader, and tempo control are always at hand, and the elastic mixer provides fingertip control over 22 loops at once, up from 10 on the iPhone.
Looptastic HD includes almost every Loop Set in the Sound Trends Loop Store — 900 audio loops, nearly 80 minutes in total length. Genres include Ambient, Breakbeat, Drum ’n’ Bass, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Minimal, Progressive House, Reggaeton, and Trance. The loops are available via free download from within the app.
