- 6 channels, each can be synth or sampler
- Song editor with loop function
- Synth with envelope, filter, lfo etc
- Sample on the fly
- Re-sampling
- Save function
- Sample-import via e-mail
- Copy & paste of samples
- File management via iTunes
- WAV-export
- Export to clipboard
- Send and receive projects via e-mail

Six example projects are included.


Built from ground up and specifically optimised for touchscreens, nanoloop's stepsequencer is very fast and simple to use.


The simple but powerful synthesizer allows to create a great bandwidth of sounds, including beats, noises, basses and pads. Available synthesis types are:

- rectangular wave with filter
- FM
- LFSR noise generator

Each synth channel is three-voice polyphonic.


Short samples can not just be used in a drum-machine style, but also be pitched and played as notes.
Samples can be recorded via microphone and from nanoloop's own sound output.


When iOS3.2 or higher is running on the device, you can up- and download samples (and also project files) in iTunes.
Alternatively, samples can be imported via e-mail. An online conversion tool is available at

Sample Copy & Paste

You can copy & paste samples to / from apps that support copy & paste of audio.


With nanoloop for iPhone, you can send your saved projects to other nanoloop users and your own PC via e-mail. If nanoloop is installed on the recipient's iPhone / iPod, she/he can simply tap on the file name in the received e-mail to start nanoloop and import the attached file so that it is available for editing. This makes collaboration very easy, multiple users around the world can work on the same project by simply e-mailing the file back and forth.


Songs can be exported to a WAV file that is accessible via iTunes (simply drag & drop files in finder). The exported file is also copied to the clipboard so that it can be pasted in other apps that support pasting audio.
Alternatively, projects sent by e-mail can be converted to WAV audio files with just one click, using the nanoloop2wav desktop conversion tool (Mac OS X only).
