Based on the original ideas of Santiago Vilanova for, and its further development with Nox, now evolves to a kind of raw audio looper, intended to be suitable for live use, controlled by an instrumentist as an effects processor.

No sofisticated DSP algorithmycs, no smoothness, only the intuitive digital model of a two track tape looper with one writing and four reading heads, each with its own independent pitch and polarity controls, and a straight 16 step sequencer for slices by position and pitch; multiwave LFO for fine tune pitch modulation or completely distorted head tremor, and amp modulation with env - for slices- or ramp and LFO modes, and all the "wrong" controlers we could fit: length and 0shift for destroying sync, pitch faders that mess with sequencer pitch - allowing to make a kind of defective scratching; unlabeled faders of uncertain effect (dividing the sequencer base length).

Time window defines the length of the global loop in musical measures (MIDI derived) from an internal maximmum length of 882000 samples.

Controlling the overall gain is left up to user.

Just feed it with some audio and start checking the intrument's snapshots.

Now with better GUI and skin by Nox.

I'm a big fan of your work with nonlinear systems and this is a really exciting new trajectory from you. Getting great stuff with only sparse inputs and hope to learn to layer and better utilize all of the available bandwidth over time. Terrific ensemble, Thank you!

Gracias Andres, ya venía a ver si podía ayudar ;) Jan, do you have used the "Amp" section at the sequencers? It was intended to get ride of the clicks, try the ramp and env options. Ans thanks for the comment :)

thank you for this great tool. it's very what i was looking for. one thing: i have no experience with the core level. is it possible to avoid the click sounds? nevertheless it's a 10!
