    Loopy HD has MIDI learn for a large number of actions....pretty much every action and setting can be linked to MIDI. Just configure it by telling it what command you want to trigger with MIDI and send a MIDI event to it. Loopy has a good manual. Take a look and give it a try and come back with question about any particulars that hang you up. You can also find quite a few discussions and videos about Loopy and MIDI by doing a web search.

    Just to be clear, Loopy is an audio looper that you can control via MIDI. You mention that you want to "loop midi sequences". Loopy doesn't record midi, jist audio.

    @Michael135 - did I read correctly that you want to loop MIDI in Loopy? If so, sorry, Loopy HD doesn't have the ability to loop MIDI, only audio.

    You can use midi to do things like trigger audio recording and audio loop playback, but not record or play back MIDI.

  • Indeed. But you might want to take a look at LK from Imaginando:
    https://apps.apple.com/en/app/lk-for-ableton-live-midi/id944972221

    It's not a MIDI looper per se but it has MIDI clips you can record each in a loop, you can launch them by MIDI control (it already supports a number of MIDI controllers) and it might be what you're looking for.

    There's also Infinite Looper from Secret Base Design:
    https://apps.apple.com/en/app/infinite-looper/id1054808350
    which does that but I personally prefer LK for its workflow, UI, functionality and the fact that it can be run as an AUv3 plugin in any host.

    GarageBand live loops mode is really good too, and it can loop both audio and MIDI. I can't say how well it will work with a breath controller though.

    Atom2 piano roll and Helium are great as well.
