    I'm looking for something to trigger samples and loops from my iPad. Ideally I could import and set up a bunch of labeled samples/patches, and then trigger and stop them with a button push. Some could be looped, some would be one-shot, and more than one could play at once.

    And it would be solid and easy to use in a live environment. I want to use this to trigger sound effects and segues between songs.

    Is there anything like this? I saw a demo of Akai iMPC, but I don't need all the drum-machine type features.

    Yes there Is--- I do this frequently


    It's wisest to loop on your computer and save as a single file

    Got it, looks good, thanks!
    It doesn't look like i can loop a sample until I stop it, am I missing something?

    My first reply said to render it top3 in software


    For live performance, onsite looping is jive avd risky------- without tons of expensive gear

    iPod garage band may do this - I'd still plan better

    Loopy seems pretty popular, and supports file import...

    +1. Loopy is awesome. Dig into the app, it's cool on the surface but downright amazing once you start messing around with it.
