Uloops Studio Lite is a digital audio workstation for making your own beats
This is the pro version ($9.99) of Uloops Studio, which allows you full access to all features, more instruments and editing options.
First, we liked that you can try the app without signing up, although if you want to have full access, share your your songs and many other options, you will need to create an account.
Uloops Studio Lite is basically an digital audio workstation like Reason, FL Studio or other well-known software for computers. In this case, this is an app for Android mobile devices. Of course, it isn't as complete as the computer software. However, it amazed us the amount of options, instruments, features, patterns and many other resources available to compose really good vibes.
Uloops Studio is basically based on three mainstays. First, "compose": choose the instruments, change the pitch, the volumen, adjust the equalizer, create the beat, instruments mixing, scratching, modulation, importing loops... The amount of features is just insane. Second, "Publish": once your beat is done, share it on your Uloops profile and let your contacts enjoy it. Finally, "Community": check "Today's song", "Top song", edit your artist profile, add friends, ask doubts on Forums... among many other options. Uloops has been developed to create a whole community of Uloopers constantly creating and sharing beats.
Uloops Labs, the developers of this app and its pro version, have done a great job with it. High recommendable apps fro composers.

Long samples just manually type in the begin/end box at bottom
Would be much better if you had a bigger range of time signatures. You currently only have 4/4 and 3/4. Would be great if there was a 2/4. I'm currently stuck on one of my loops because there are four bars to fill but I only need two and I don't want to repeat it, I want it to end and go to the next loop. Hope that makes sense? Not sure if I'll be able to finish my song with this app because of i
Can't upload anything longer than 8 seconds which is dumb. The loop system sucks let me work on one for 3 mins so I can upload a beat to it and actually rap to it and not having to keep going on different loops. Don't buy unless you want to waste your money.
Its great for doing beats anywhere. I cant figure out how to accept or decline band or collab invitations. Can somebody help
This is seriously the only music making app I like, and I've tried about 62 others. Although I'm only taking the time to write this because it keeps saying its down for maintenance...please let me in..:/
