LpTube

LoopTube is a looper for YouTube videos.

You can repeat any part of a video by setting start and end points. Once you have set a looping phrase, slow it down and use the loop to learn and practice. You can then move the looping segment on by the same time-window and practice the next part of a song.

What is Looptube?

I created Looptube as a tool to help musicians practice and learn pieces of music by ear by slowing them down and isolating loops of phrases to practice. This repetition allows users to master the most difficult of musical phrases. Great for piano, guitar, banjo, mandolin or any instrument! I hope the tool can also be useful beyond music, helping people practice different skills and loop entertaining portions of a youtube video.

My inspiration for this app comes from great tools I've discovered when learning music on guitar, trumpet, piano, banjo and mandolin. Amazing Slow Downer has some of the best functionality I've seen. Audacity has been good for isolating loops but takes a lot of effort. Tunepal is a great app for learning midi and abc tunes. The convenience of YouTube is what I wanted, where users can easily find a version of a tune and quickly load it in looptube.

Roadmap

I plan to continue adding features to looptube.
