The idea of nanoloop is to simplify the stepsequencer concept as far as possible while still keeping -and hopefully increasing- the gamesome, addictve character of loop-based music creation. Despite the simple design and usage, it allows to create complex structures. There are no pre-set sounds, instead, raw components are tweaked and arranged in a building blocks fashion.
Nanoloop is available in two types:
- Version 1 for the original Game Boy models (including DMG, GBP, GBC, GBA, GBA SP)
- Version 2 for Game Boy Advance (including GBA, GBA SP, GB micro, DS, DS lite)
Nanoloop 1 uses the console's simple built-in sound-generators, resulting in the typical rough and clear bleeps & noises as known from video games of the 8-bit era.
Nanoloop 2 extends this basic set through a custom software-synthesizer with filters, FM-synthesis and polyphony, allowing for more smooth tones as well as more noisy ones. Version 2 also provides some additional convenient functions which make operation even simpler.
