RiffBox is a great iPhone and iPad app in the Music category of the App Store that you can use to conjure up some awesome loops by combining rhythmic sections, individual notes, and more, with some ingenious approaches to loop sequencing and recording that you are certain to love.
I absolutely love the idea behind this app because it really helps with things like jotting down basic ideas for riffs and melodies, but you can also use it to quickly lay down some backing tracks to jam over, making it the ideal app for guitarists.
This app is great for making basic loops with individual notes or complex chord sequences, and the loops you create can be used for everything from full recordings to simply backing tracks that you can jam over.
The loops are automatically created when you play the same note for a second time, but there are also options allowing you adjust the parameters under which loops are created for unrivaled freedom and customization.

Create Mixdowns to Add Even More Tracks
RiffBox also includes metronomes and click tracks to ensure your loops are perfectly on the beat, and once you’ve laid down the foundation of your track you can then record up to four addition tracks on top of it.
As if that wasn’t enough, you can create a mixdown of your multi-track recordings before opening them back up again and then recording even more tracks over them, so you could theoretically continue this indefinitely to make some very intricate recordings.
