chipPad is a multi-track sample and loop playback and performance application.

It is made for the musician who creates loop-based music and is looking to experiment with on-the-fly arrangements or to glitch it up a notch. This application does not make music for you - you need to provide the clips that you create with your other instruments.

By adding your own pre-cut loops on up to 8 tracks you can perform using various "grid-based" controller techniques and develop new ones that are only capable on a multi-touch device.

Sliding one or multiple fingers back and forth on various tracks or tapping rhythms like on a drum machine can yield some amazing results you can't hear elsewhere.

chipPad comes with a few sample sessions to get you started. Simply select Help from the Gear menu to get started or load your own AIF or WAV audio files into the app using File Sharing via iTunes.

More detailed help available in the app.


8 stereo tracks · AIF/WAV support · up to 128 steps per track · saves sessions and loads them quickly · quarter/half/double speed · 4 mute groups · bit mode · loop mode · reverse · per track volume faders · per track mute & solo · microfades · optional track display · master volume fader · scenes · multi-touch · portrait or landscape · practically zero latency · built-in help and sample sessions · made for musicians who create their own music · supports audio files of practically any length · manage audio files using file sharing via iTunes · load audio, create some sessions, take it with you and jam on the commute · amazing performance feel

Like mlr for the iPad

If you've used mlr with a Monome or Launchpad with Nonome, you'll really appreciate this app. This is an amazing deal for the functionality that you get. The ability to slice up loops into more than the usual 8 or 16 steps really makes chipPad shine. It's really easy to do breakbeat-y stuff with the 128 subdivision mode. If you are into playing your electronic music live without too much pain, or just want to mess around with making new compositions, check this app out!

5/5 stars

So Great!

Let's cut to the chase...this app is awesome. You can really create some incredible sonic soundscapes with it. The interface is really nice and there are plenty of tweak able parameters. The mix, edit and bits parameters are great with plenty of options for sample tweak ability. Would love to see a pan slider added to the mixer secrtion for mono tracks. Having the option to set up scenes is icing on the cake. If you have minimal looping or monome experience, now worries, this app is easy to grasp, just refer to the help section in settings. For me, this app is tied for the best bang for buck in the whole store (touchAble being the other big hitter). These two apps alone justify the purchase of an iPad. Great stuff.
