– Pattern-based stepsequencer
– 6 channels, each can be synth or sampler
– Song editor with loop function
– Synth with envelope, filter, lfo etc
– Sample on the fly
– Re-sampling
– Save function
– Sample-import via e-mail
– Copy & paste of samples
– File management via iTunes
– WAV-export
– Export to clipboard
– Send and receive projects via e-mail

Six example projects are included.

Sequencer

Built from ground up and specifically optimised for touchscreens, nanoloop’s stepsequencer is very fast and simple to use.

Synth

The simple but powerful synthesizer allows to create a great bandwidth of sounds, including beats, noises, basses and pads. Available synthesis types are:

– rectangular wave with filter
– FM
– LFSR noise generator

Each synth channel is two-voice polyphonic and an additional stereo effect can be applied.

Sampler

Short samples can not just be used in a drum-machine style, but also be pitched and played as notes.
Samples can be recorded via microphone (iPhone only), headset microphone (iPhone, iPod touch 2nd gen only) and from nanoloop’s own sound output.
