TechLife Australia - - DISCOVER -

Loop­field gen­er­ates mu­sic loops based on the am­bi­ent noise you record around your­self, which can then be worked in against a back­ing track to cre­ate a sam­ple. Es­sen­tially, it’s meant to be a por­ta­ble way to record and sam­ple in­ter­est­ing sounds and turn them into mu­sic. There are nu­mer­ous in­cluded sam­ples, plus you can change the BPM and mess with ef­fects. Var­i­ous gen­res of mu­sic are rep­re­sented, but the back­ing tracks are pretty generic – don’t ex­pect to cre­ate the next big hip-hop sam­ple in Loop­field. This is an in­ter­est­ing app with some def­i­nite po­ten­tial but mak­ing some­thing that ac­tu­ally sounds good seems all but im­pos­si­ble, and it’s very un­clear what sort of noise is ac­tu­ally go­ing to turn into an in­ter­est­ing ad­di­tion to your beat when fil­tered through the app. It also lacks a tu­to­rial and is too sim­ple for some­one with se­ri­ous in­tent to cre­ate sam­ples. I thought that this might just be me not be­ing very good at cre­at­ing a killer sam­ple, but as it turns out not even the sam­ples in Loop­field’s mar­ket­ing videos are par­tic­u­larly good.
