: sound toys : Loopy's BF

Loopy's Best Friend (LBF) is a drum machine companion for Loopy 1.0. It can be controlled from the same keyboard and automatically syncs to Loopy's internal pulse.

I initially created Loopy's Best Friend to provide the bass drum sounds that my voice can not make but are essential on any modern dance floor.

LBF has grown since its inception and now includes four parts, a live sampling feature that can swap out any of the drum sounds with a new live recording, and sophisticated controls over the sound parameters.

Loopy's Best Friend looks like this:

and here is a rude little demo showing off some live manipulation of the sounds and rhythms:
