    This has been my go-to super basic looper app before but now that the Lite version is up, i think it's better because it has longer recording time available. Not the most technical app for loops but surely does the job for demos

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

A loop station is a device that allows the recording and playback of sound in real-time. It is often used by single musicians to layer their sound and create the illusion of a full band. It has changed the concept of a one-man band from a person playing various musical instruments simultaneously, to a person who plays multiple instruments individually and layering the sound together through a live loop.

DID YOU KNOW?

Ed Sheeran is known for using a loop station for all of his live events to build his songs instrument by instrument and harmony by harmony. He has once been accused of “miming” in a 2017 concert in Glastonbury, as some concert-goers have observed that the sound of his guitar carries on in the background even though he’s stopped playing it. In actuality, Sheeran was using a loop station to record a segment of music and to play it back on loop. The singer-songwriter took to Twitter to defend himself by saying “Never thought I’d have to explain it, but everything I do in my live show is live, it’s a loop station, not a backing track. Please google.” Other than Ed Sheeran, musical artists who use a loop pedal for their performances are Howie Day, Kimbra, Reggie Watts, and KT Tunstall.
