Loop Community Prime

Loop Community Prime is an IPad app that is an outgrowth of the popular Loop Community multitrack and loop resource site that features track content from both industry sources and church users around the world. Many users of these resources use full DAW environments such as Ableton or Mainstage. The Loop Community Prime app was created in response to the desire for an easier to use playback application.


Prime works with any content purchased from LoopCommunity.com or uploaded to your account on LoopCommunity. This encompasses both original master stems from popular worship artists and ‘Community Tracks” created by other worship leaders or producers and sold through Loop Community. There are thousands to choose from, and a free monthly track is offered.

Content Cost

You can review cost for the content on the Loop Community site. You can buy content in WAV format and therefore be used in other compatible software applications, subject to licensing terms of the sale. Tracks are cheaper if you but the versions that can only be used within Prime. You must connect to your Loop Community account through the app to download content purchased or uploaded to the site, and content availability is via user login.
