nanoloop


Nanoloop is a complete sequencer/synthesizer/sampler package, optimised for mobile use. It runs smoothly on a wide range of phones and tablets, including older and low end devices.
The interface fits any screen resolution and can be customised with adjustable font/icon size and white/black color schemes.

- Easy to use sequencer, suitable for rhythm and melody
- Automatisation of all parameters
- 8 channels, each can be synth or sampler
- 8 patterns per channel
- Load samples from SD-card
- Sample via microphone
- Trim samples
- Re-sample
- Polyphonic FM-, PWM- and noise synth
- Song editor with loop function
- Send and receive projects via e-mail
- Compatible with iOS version
- WAV and Ogg Vorbis export
- Sharing projects and audio in Dropbox and SoundCloud is possible when these apps are installed.

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.

Recent changes:
3.1:

- 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.


3.0: Bugfixes:
- Exported song length corrected.
- Occasional crashes when recording samples fixed.

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.

Zen in a music app Thanks Oliver, I couldn't find any mention of the random function in the help page. Not only is random function still there, but it is a sort of progressive randomization which is great. Once again many thanks for this great app. I have made about 15 tracks with nanoloop alone (user: boxxgrooved @ Soundcloud). If the zen school entered electronic music it would produce a piece of minimal and functional software such as this. 5 Stars again. This developer listens to us and is extremely helpful.
