Loopseque and Bloom are two important apps in our toolbox. Loopseque allows users to build drum, bass, percussion and synth grooves using an intuitive circular interface. It is great for participants who want to create  backing tracks for rap or a basis for melodic improvisation. Bloom creates relaxing soundscapes and is excellent in PMLD settings and for pupils who prefer quieter, mellow sounds.

Both apps have different sound sets, each with its own key and scale. Knowing what these are can be necessary when using Loopseque/Bloom with other apps or acoustic instruments. Happily, Transformance Music’s Peter Keserue has created this handy guide that includes all the sound sets for both apps. We hope you find it useful!
