Here is an early Christmas present for fellow scratch DJs or anyone in need of many loops. Yourlooper is a database of flash-based loop tracks created by various artists in a variety of different styles. The ‘loopers’ themselves are easy to use, free to download, and could be used for just about anything. Below is a reasonably smug DJ Rafik cutting over a beat from Looper 2 by Le Jad.

Each looper opens in Flash and features a custom control panel with beats laid out for your looping pleasure. I have only downloaded a few collections so far and they range from standard hip hop instrumentals to fast electro beats in the style Q Bert and Needle Thrashers. Some of the panels look pretty standard with numbered buttons laid out for ease of use while others make you work for your loops by hiding them in images. ‘Paradigme’ is the best looking one I have seen…

Check out to find the full selection of loopers and to comment or post videos of your efforts.
