Loops is a cute little audio sequencer application that allows you to make music loops on your android mobile phone. It lacks some frills compared to other apps, but works nicely and is fun to use. The full version is free to download. It features a simple interface, a variety of sounds and even a mixer.
First, you create a loop platform and call whatever you want. As default it includes a Drums channel but you can add three more from the choice of Drums 2, Flute, Xylophone, Banjo, Harmonica, Bass Guitar, Bass Guitar 2, Bass Guitar 3, Piano, Sound Effects, Sound Effects 2, Trumpet, Ocarina, Harpsichord, Choir, Choir 2 and Strings.
With over 16 bars you add notes for each, just select a channel by tapping on it. Obviously elements like drums are slightly different but higher ‘notes’ are essentially high-hats and lower notes are bass drums. Then, press menu and select Start to hear your creation. I tend to press play and add things as I go along to see how it sounds, but it’s up to you.
There is a facility to adjust the levels of each sound. Additionally once you have created the loop you can even play it and can create another loop meanwhile. They can be played either wholly or in separate bars.
The extra settings include increasing or decreasing the beats per minute, altering the loop length and song length. And also you can reorder the loops according to your convenient.
It is very fun and simple to follow and understand. Since it is free you can try out many times. You can export your favorite song to SD card and keep that as a ringtone.
