Looping is one of the most popular ideas in modern pop music, but in the pop context, it generally indicates the use of loops made from prerecorded material, i.e. somebody's album, movie, or speech. Live looping is a new way to create music which can be used with any style and instrument. The musician creates his/her own background by recording bits of his playing during the music and has them looping as long as he needs them or repeating whenever he calls them back in real-time, using either hardware (magnetic tape, dedicated hardware devices) or software.
Remember the Live on stage Dance music shows of 80's with techno trance or ambient music? Now you can do it all with the power of your iOS device. Be a DJ for your next party with Sonic Loops. With just one or two musicians you can create the sound of a whole orchestra all live. As opposed to a real orchestra or pre-recorded / programmed music, you can follow the way it is created, because all you hear is once the only thing that is played in front of you, all the rest is just the repetition of it.
