LoopBe1 can link together various computer programs in order to allow the easy transfer of MIDI data. It acts as a virtual connector between two or more applications, waiting to receive data from the output port of one and forward it to the input port of the other.
With the help of this small utility, you can easily convey MIDI files from one computer program to another, without using the export function. LoopBe1 is actually an internal MIDI port that can listen for requests and channel them to the destination program in real time. Details about its properties and functioning parameters can be obtained from the 'Device Manager' section of 'Control Panel'.
One of its advantages is that it does not require the source and the target applications to have additional components or libraries installed, as its compatibility range extends to any MIDI-compliant software. Actually, LoopBe1 promises to interconnect up to eight applications together and allow data transfers throughout its ports.
Once installed and started, the program is sent to the system tray, monitoring for transmitted MIDI data from the background, without interfering with your work.
The application features automatic MIDI feedback detection, which means that it is capable of preventing an application to access its input and output ports and thus, create a never-ending loop. To avoid such situations, it can immediately mute the corresponding port, stopping the process and notifying you about the issue in a popup window.
You can say that LoopBe1 plays the role of the middle man, ensuring the MIDI data transmission across multiple PC programs. It is a handy tool for those who work with multiple MIDI editors and require a reliable data transfer tool.
