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.

It would be better if able to edit loops cut and size to fit any sample to make it loop perfect
This makes 'beat-perfect' recordings 'on the fly'…
Or are we talking about the way Loopy can sometimes guess the tempo of imported loops wrong, and play back at 2x or 0.5x speed? (because of the integer ambiguity with multiple-bar loops - without the additional BPM metadata, it's impossibly to distinguish e.g. between 1 bar of 60BPM and 2 bars of 120BPM, as they're exactly the same length). I'll be working on that issue soon.
Looping is about timing. If you are having problems getting your loops right, practice. This is music, after all.
It's true - track editing has never been a priority in Loopy. I prefer to help people get the timing right the first time. Address the cause, not the symptom.
what so you you think about a pitch (+/- 12) and and a flexible Time funktion, like i have on my Electro Harmonix 16-sec Delay? I also miss the reverse funktion.
As for FX, that's a rather big task to undergo. Not only would it tax the lower-end ios devices (ie ipod touch, iphone 4) due to processing stress, but the FX also would have to be good quality. Thus, this is a function you may want to use separate hardware or software for in your audio line.
Loopy is a looper, and a compact touch-based one at that. Keeping it simple and effective on all platforms is important to keeping the app stable, as the goal is to use it in live scenarios. Stuffing the software with many features just creates more problems, especially since Loopy is developed by 1 man. A nomadic one, at that. :P
The update is nearly there; you can see what's in it here: http://atastypixel.com/blog/brand-new-loopy-coming-real-soon/
It's important to me to release a solid, stable product, and I will always sacrifice schedule for quality. There have been a few outstanding issues which it has been important to address. I expect to be submitting to Apple over the next few days, though.
@michael. I understand you were working on a project Audiobus? I think this could be a perfect way of filling in the gaps that some individuals seem to feel loopy lacks. I would presume it would enable loopy to focus on the job it's dealing with, with another app dealing with their specific task, I.e. fx, guitar modelling etc. that's what I think anyway....probably a load of crap!!
Multi-channel output, if we ever get it into Loopy, would get you around the issue as you could always route loops 1-4, say, to an external fx bus.
But again... dev priority is understandably the features that make this work as best as possible for everyone, and I'm currently having hours of fun tinkering with the app as it is. Can't wait for the new 4 channel Alesis IO4 to arrive in the post on monday!
I'm bumping this old thread rather than creating a new one. I'm using loopy as a practicing tool. Basically I'll be using it to record backing tracks for playing gypsy jazz solos over. A means of adjusting the start and end points (or even the length having rotated the track to get the start point right) would be useful, that would mean I can record a track without needing to pair my air turn pedal then adjust the length and start point so it loops in time. I don't want to use the click feature as it is a somewhat organic style and some of the tracks have a tempo that varies during the song. I have Loopy 1.6.5
