I did a little post yesterday about Jimmy Fallon and Billy Joel creating their own two-man doo-wop band with the help of an iPad app on The Tonight Show.
The app they used looked very cool and I got its name wrong in my post – I thought Jimmy Fallon called it The Looper, when in fact the app is called Loopy HD. Anyway, now that the video of the Tonight Show clip is all over the web, I though it might be worthwhile to share a little info on the app that was a big part of the performance.
So here’s a bit of the App Store description for Loopy HD:
As seen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon! ## Create music by layering looped recordings of singing, beatboxing, or playing an instrument with a savvy, sophisticated, tactile new looper that totally reinvents the formula.
This is a looper that’ll come out to play, but get down to work when you want to get serious.
While other music creation apps tend to be either powerful but difficult to learn, or easy to use but limited in features, Loopy doesn’t compromise. Loopy offers a sleek, expressive, instantly understandable interface that beginners can start using effectively straight away. It’s fun, right from the start.
More advanced users, however, will not be disappointed by Loopy’s rich feature set, with extra features many other loopers just don’t have. Plus, a sophisticated interactive tutorial system lets users discover Loopy’s more advanced features at their own pace.
For those of you with the musical chops to put this app to good use here’s an App Store link for Loopy HD; it’s priced at $7.99 and is a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
