What is an equivalent to loopy on Mac OS for recording into a desktop DAW?
Price equivalent? Maybe Mobius ( freeware AU plugin, or standalone looper). Its really quite a capable looper. http://www.circularlabs.com/
Otherwise, there is Ableton Live for full feature looping with Fx automation, MIDI track loops, etc. See RheyneMusic on YouTube for extensive examples. I'm sure there are plenty of tutorials on YouTube.
If you want dead simple, easy, efficient audio looping... Stay with Loopy HD!
Thanks. I will check out mobius. I have heard of Ableton. For guitar and bass riff I will also check out riffworks which I think has features similar to loopers...
