3. Use GarageBand

You can use the popular music creation application Garage Band to help you loop the voice memo recordings that you have saved on your iPhone. To do this, you will first have to download and install the GarageBand application found in the app store.

Once you have downloaded and installed the GarageBand application, you will then need to create and save the voice memo recording that you wish to loop. After you have saved the voice memo recording that you wish to loop, you will need to convert it to an MP3 file by using iTunes.

You can bypass all of the steps listed above in the future by using the GarageBand application to record all of your voice memo recordings instead of the Voice Memo application provided by Apple. This will save all of your voice memo recordings to the GarageBand application where they will be available to loop using the built-in looping feature of the application.

This is the method that you should use in the future if you have decided to download and use the GarageBand application. It is a much more functional and fleshed-out audio recording application and is better suited to these types of tasks.

Keep in mind that there are some circumstances where you will not have to first convert your file to an MP3 for use in GarageBand.

The reason that it is advised that you do this with voice memo recordings is that Apple places certain restrictions on users’ files when it comes to being used in other third-party applications.

This can cause your own files that you have recorded to be protected by Apple and display a message that reads “AAC File Was Rights Protected” when run through a third-party application.

This will cause you to be unable to use your files until you convert them to another file type that is not protected by Apple.

4. Convert To MP4 File And Open With Media Player On PC

You can also convert your voice memo recording to an MP4 and use any media player on your PC that has a loop function to continuously play it. To do this, you will first need to plug your iPhone into your PC.

Once you have plugged your iPhone into your PC, you should see a popup menu that lists the different file options available for your PC and phone. Select the appropriate file option and then drag and drop the voice memo recording from your phone onto your PC’s desktop.

Once you have dragged the file from your phone to your PC, it will automatically be converted to an MP4 file. You can use this MP4 file in any media player that has a loop function to continuously play the voice memo recording.

Some of the most popular desktop media players are VCL, Windows Media Player, Winamp, and iTunes. All of these media players have built-in loop functions that will allow you to play your voice memo recordings on a loop.

5. Download A More Advanced Voice Memo Application

You can also search the app store for more advanced voice memo applications that have a native loop feature built in. The app store is full of these types of applications and most of them have more functionality than the built-in Voice Memo application included on your phone.

Once you have downloaded a better voice memo application, you should ensure that all of the voice memos you create are recorded using the new application. This will give you access to all of your voice memos in one place and the option to loop them using the built-in loop settings of the application.

This is a great option to consider if you create a lot of voice memo recordings and wish to have more control and functionality when using them.

Since the Voice Memo application that comes included with iPhones is relatively barebones, it is not uncommon for people to replace it with a more functional application for use with voice memo recordings.
