Hi! If your question relates to Loopy Pro, you may find a faster answer at one of the other Loopy Pro communities (https://loopypro.com/communities) – this forum has only a small number of active users.
[NEW] Loopy update is here! Multichannel audio input support, new punch-in on touch gesture, more
A few questions, too-- in the new version, can we get any track to start on the next beat one, rather than going around again to come in on measure four (if it's a four measure track) or measure sixteen (if it's a sixteen measure track), etc?
Also, this may not be a feature question, but... I've noticed if I have headphones plugged in to the jack on the iPad, the metronome and other tracks play through while recording. If the headphones aren't plugged in, the metronome is silenced during recording. I want to use Loopy live coming out of speakers-- is there a way (feature?) to select the click track only come through headphones, while the track audio goes out to speakers? (I currently am running Loopy through the Apogee One, and out to an Sm58 mike, through the camera connector kit. The iPad headphone jack is unused-- would be nice to do something like route the click track to the iPad headphone jack, while the audio goes out through the USB/Apogee One/out to the speaker. )
Thanks again for such an awesome tool! Obviously excited to use it.
Yes, you can set up a custom count-in quantize length, so even if you have a 16-bar (say) track, it'll count in for just the length you specify.

As this seems to baffle a lot of people, I've decided to remove the switch entirely, and leave echo cancellation on all the time when headphones aren't plugged in; it's not ideal, but I think it's better than volume ducking, even if it means sound quality will be less.
I'm not actually allowed (because of developer NDA) to tell you about routing the click track elsewhere, other than to say wait
Maybe I was also being too hopeful for this release of various other ideas you seemed to endorse over the last few months in the forum~ track groupings with definable controls and colours, and individual control bindings for each track were both .
Hope these find their way into the next update, but look forward to getting this one in the meantime.
@Wally - Yep, there'll be more advanced output support coming with future stuff (incidentally, I've already got this working in my Audiobus test bed, where you can push single tracks out to other devices/apps, all perfectly in sync)
I do have a lengthy todo list with many of these items on it - I simply haven't gotten to them all yet.
Curious about the click track routing...
Additionally--is the noise cancellation necessary if I'm using an external microphone and speakers? I'm currently using an SM58 and running out to boombox speakers, basically-- seems a shame to degrade the audio signal if the cancellation is only necessary for the iPad mike.
What *should* be happening is that Loopy will switch to the non-echo cancelling system as soon as you plug anything in. It should only ever use echo cancellation if you're using the inbuilt speakers & microphone.
Beautiful job with Loopy I must say
And hence I am an inpatient beast... when is the update coming? Is it already with Apple?
APPLE hurry up! ;-)
hope they make no problems cause of the audiobus-tech...thumbs press.....
