Loopy Pro: Tips and Tricks

Here are some handy tips for using Loopy Pro. If you are having a problems, see Loopy Pro Troubleshooting.

Multiple Paths For An Input - Demonstration of how to send the same input to different colors/tracks, each with its own effect chain. This demonstration shows how to set it up to hear the tracks/inputs wet but record them dry.

Getting MIDI into Midi Control from Inside Loopy - Currently (Dec 2021) but changing soon, the MIDI Control system listens to external devices an the Virtual Midi In. To send midi from inside Loopy to MIDI Control right now, you need to use a solution that gets MIDI to the Loopy Virtual MIDI port. With the MIDITools MIDI Route AUv3 loaded in Loopy or miRack you can do it with no additional apps running. (For miRack you have a midi in module connected to a midi out module and choose Loopy as the destination. The other way to do it is to use Audiobus or MidiFire or AUM or the like (FreEWI works, and is free) to loop back the virtual midi out to the virtual midi in (by watch out for feedback loops).

One Loop Playing Per Color - There are a few ways to ensure that only loopy of a color play at a time.

  • Groups - You can do this with a group by adding all loops of a color to the same group
  • Solo Action Gesture (Context: Color) - You can use the Solo action with the color context instead of groups. This lets you use groups for other purposes. To do this, set up a gesture to use the Solo action and set its context to Color. You can set this up globally or for particular colors. Make sure that solo context is set to color (other contexts are group and all clips) as shown in the picture below. This means that within the clip's color only the targeted clip will play – without affecting loops of other colors. You could use this as part of the default tap gesture, but you may want to use a different gesture.

Recording (Resampling) Within Loopy Pro - To record the output of clips to other clips, add a color or colors as destinations for the color you want to record from. See Loopy Pro Resampling Setup.
