Here’s some background about this site and its companion YouTube channel.

What drove me to open this site and channel is my deep appreciation for others sharing their knowledge online, and the need to reciprocate in kind. I do enjoy digging deep into what a piece of electronic music gear can do – and learning by having someone show you is the best way to do that, especially considering cryptic manuals some manufacturers create.

It almost goes without saying that aside from having someone teach you in person, YouTube is the best place to quickly find fantastic electronic music making tutorials and gear overviews.

Anyway, every now and then I discovered something that wasn’t documented or obvious – whether it was a workflow idea, or a “trick” that I felt a lot of people were struggling with (or at least I was), that has a simple but non obvious workaround. The urge to share this information is what drove the first uploads to my channel.

So, that’s how it started, but uploading into a vacuum wouldn’t have lasted long. Luckily, it’s been anything but that. The feedback and encouragement from people like you reading this, has been the ultimate motivator to keep doing this. This book is my way of saying thanks for being a part of this journey.

So what’s Loopop? Well, most electronic music gear supports some form of looping or sequencing, and if you want to know how the LOOP OPerates… or if a LOOPing idea POPs in your head, or if you take a LOOP and turn it into a POP song… well, hopefully LOOPOP will help just a bit 🙂

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Thanks a lot for your fantastic reviews and tutorials! Complete and to the point ! i always look to your reviews before i buy synths. My question for you. I have a Elektron Octatrack MKI. i like the sound and i see a lot of people making fantastic things on it but i don’t use it a lot because i can’t get out the PART management! I have a digitakt and it’s great and i can work with it because you have patterns. The octatrack has pattern parts in a bank and i don’t understand the point of this and how i must use it. Is it possible to make a good tutorial around this theme? I think a lot of people would appreciate such tutorial.
    I want to thank you for reading my mail and hopefully you can help me with a great tutorial around part patterns and banks on the Octatrack!

    Thanks a lot

      Hi Melanie & Wouter,

      Thanks for the kind words! I haven’t gotten to the octatrack yet but it’s certainly on my to do list… I will try and find time for it!

    Which video? You don’t need an app to make samples longer you should sample them at double speed and play them at half speed. You can use the free app Audacity on a computer if that’s what you mean

  3. Hi,

    I responded to your video on the Behringer model D. I wanted to record my experiences in a video. Until now I used Hypercam for screen capture, which sometimes failed because it didn’t record sound (a common complaint). My guess is the configuration with a MIDI controller, hard-and software synths a webcam and a external sound card is too much for poor Hypercam. Looking for an alternative (preferably free, since I won’t use it a lot and even fear I won’t succeed recording this comparison between the model D and a VST, or even my model D and yours, using the video on YT), I noticed the reviews are written with other uses in mind (predominantly games or recording from youtube). So my question is what do you use for your recordings? Or do you know a free alternative?

    Thanks in advance.

      Do you mean what you can use for screen captures? I use OBS on Windows – it’s free, and so is Quicktime on Mac

      1. Thanks. That’s what I meant, yes. I’m trying to master OBS by now. The problem with hypercam2 turned out to be the ASIO, apparently to be solved by Voicemeeter (and it is).

  4. I was wondering if you have ever done a tutorial on the audio damage sequencer 1? I really enjoyed the one you did on maths I learned more about it in the short video then over a year of owning it.

      Hey – just saw this question – No, I’ve never reviewed Sequencer 1. Thanks for the kind words re the Maths video!

  5. Thx for your great reviews
    I would like to know what subject are include in your book, it’s any introduction for a beginner how to start patching your euro rack, what things follow the other in the patch chain?

    1. Author

      Hi! Thanks for your interest. I really should make a table of contents available – until then there’s a brief snapshot of it at the end of my videos. I’ll also consider adding a eurorack for beginners chapter to it ASAP!
