LoopRecorder is a Live Looper, an almost click-less Recorder (wav) and a loop Player (wav, flac, aiff, mp3, ogg). Insert it as a 32/64-bit plugin (VST or AU), place the cursor where you want to record and press play in your host. You can set "Auto Save" to record everything, drag and drop the samples or click on "Save" only when you want to save your last take. An extra buffer gives you extra time to decide if you want to save it or discard it.

A standalone version is also included. "Open with" LoopRecorderStandalone to play your audio files in a loop. The input is recorded to temporal buffers from the start, so you can quickly save your ideas as soon as you get them right.

Main features:

  • Drag and Drop your recordings to and from your DAW instantly to create layered one-shots in a heart beat.
  • MIDI Learn: almost every button and toggle of the plug-in can be linked to your MIDI controller (right-click on them with your mouse to configure them).
  • Automatic naming (with user tags, bars or your host BPM) helps you save your recordings quickly. You don't have to type a file name each time that you save.
  • The "Start" modes will allow you to sync your loops with your host bars or beats, but you can also manually start and stop it independently of the host transport with an automatable "Start" button.
  • Enable the built-in crossfades for a click-free experience or disable them for pure non-destructive recordings (see the "Settings" section for more details).
  • Undo and redo buttons are included (up to 50 undos supported).
  • Create overdubbed loops with "Auto Load".
  • A silence detector discards empty buffers (click on "Settings" to set the threshold level).
  • Save automatically ideas while you play with "Auto Save".
  • Use it as a recorder and save time when you export: no need to move the export markers anymore, just press play where you want to start and stop where you want to finish.
  • Insert this plugin anywhere in your mixing chain to record the effect of non-automatable parameters.
  • Use the metronome to record live music (adjust the click gain in "Settings").
  • Sync the time signature and BPM with your host or set your own.
  • Record mono from the left or right input channel (click on "Settings" to select the input channel).
  • Save your recordings in 16-bit, 24-bit or 32-bit (click on "Settings" to select the Bit Depth).
  • Save your settings as default so that the next time that you open LoopRecorder everything is ready.
  • Last but not least, enjoy our entirely resizable UI.

LoopRecorder is hands down my favorite VST looper after trying out about 10 vsts. It has a simple and natural flow when recording. I use it with my Reaper DAW, and just press play on Reaper and LoopRecorder starts recording as soon as I play the first note on my MIDI keyboard. When I am through with my loop, I can just use the mouse and Drag and Drop into a track in Reaper. It's that easy, Record - Drag and Drop - Rinse and Repeat.

I can't name anything that I don't like about this vst, it works like a looping charm.

Here is what I like about the software and why I purchased:

1. Simple to install.

2. Syncs up wonderfully with Reaper daw and I am sure others also.

3. Drag and Drop of loop into Daw when done recording. (This feature saves a ton of time not having to export and import the finished loop!)
Plus you can also save / export the loop.

4. Has MIDI Learn feature so that you can control many functions like -Clear - Undo - Redo by pressing a key on your MIDI controller or a button on your MIDI controller.

5. I found a bug where stereo loops would switch to mono every other measure and then back to stereo, I sent an email to the dev and the dev found and fixed the bug the same day. You can't get better product support than that!!.

Thanks a ton for a Superior Product.

Sincerely, .

Jeff M.
