Video: Nokia Loop App Demo (demoed on Nokia N8)
Here’s a demo from the official Nokia Page of Loop in action showing just how to use it:
- Works best with headphones (to minimise re-recording of recorded loops) and also in offline mode (so your loops don’t get interrupted by calls/text/email etc)
- Choose starting Bars and BPM or have some preset base (e.g. Dubstep/Funk/HipHop etc) or ones you’ve recorded yourself.
- Just record your own every day sounds. Anything works, and I mean anything. I’ve used staplers, scissors, coins, drawers, my mates speaking, traffic etc.
- The mixer screen is pretty cool too, you can fade sounds out, increase volume of others or completely delete them.
- If you want to add more tracks than allowed, you can just merge tracks with a touch of a button or pushing tracks together in the mixer
- You can then edit pad sounds (the four black curved bars on the outside)
- Save and set as ringtone if you wish.
As suggested in the comments, Nokia should really contact Mystery Guitar Man to show off what you can do with this too. I remember that guy back in old school sub 10k subscriber days, just when he was about to disappear from YouTube, he gets his thing noticed and is now a world wide name (in the realm of YouTube anyway).
Is there a loop competition? There so should be!!!
btw, Found this video very helpful. I didn’t know you could merge tracks by dragging them (I just used the button). Nor did I notice those things on the outside were pads that could be edited to add more sounds.
Dear Nokia, when creating cool apps like this, have vids like this to go along with it please.
