Introducing the Looper: Redefining beat creation

Make Music Instantly, Anywhere!

Making music on your mobile just got easier. Our brand new Looper redefines mobile beat creation – a revolutionary new beat making instrument within our Mix Editor which enables you to be creative wherever you go.

We took it for a spin around the city. Watch for yourself…

Master The Basics In Seconds

A tap of a finger is all it takes to start the Looper and begin creating down your next track. Choose from 12 professionally created Sample Packs ranging from Hip-Hop to Pop. Want bass and beats? FX, keys and synth? Tap and swipe to trigger your preferred instruments to start the music flowing. Layer on extra FX like reverb and echo via our built-in presets to create your unique sound.

Looper & You: The Perfect Duo

Each Sample Pack contains 24 purpose-built loops, curated and professionally designed to inspire your creative process. All loops, one-shots and FX are perfectly synced so you’ll always be in time and in key, and each combination reveals something different.

For Free, Forever

The Looper is free on BandLab for iOS and Android. Choose from a range of free Sample Packs and use your creativity to make them your own. Mix them, download them, fork, collaborate and share – these are your creations to play with.

Beyond The Beat

Add up to 12 Looper tracks via the Mix editor or use BandLab’s other instruments to rap over it, add a melody line, another sample or a guitar riff. Stuck for ideas? Make your track forkable and get the best out of the millions of BandLab users making and sharing their music around the world.
