DESCRIPTION

Records input and plays it automatically back, loop/recording length is 1 second (+1s of post-buffer for fading). Loop is recorded on 3 channels simultaneously, each channel has different default playback speed (base speed for every channel is adjustable in B view - sliders). Playback of all 3 channels can be sped up or slow down by constant value - knob "speed" and each channel's amplitude envelope can affect playback speed of following channel - knob "follow". Playback output is equal mix of all three channels.

1.0 update:
Added trig input for recording - when recording process is activated, playback slows down to zero, block records 1s of main buffer, another 1s of "post-buffer" and starts playback. Post-buffer is used for "fade out" after loop points to soften transition. Duration of fade out can be set for each channel in B view (knobs on top). Added gate input for pause, separate signal and gate output for each channel (50% of channel's effective loop duration).

Yes, it needs some more work (controls Rec and Play are sketchy + "mute on record" is useless as block will pass audio input when connected anyway). I am not sure what I will do with this as it's built around primary's tapedecks but I am rather planning to do something with buffers in core... And for trig input: you can for the time being try to make a workaround with midi perhaps, as buttons will learn midi (I hooked up several of those - one per keyboard key). Btw it's cool also with LFOs.

I love it. I hooked it up to tape nouveau and instant "droneage." Not to open a can of worms, but the only thing I would like is a trig input for the record button. Thanks again!

ah ah great ! One thing I don't get : one can drag and drop samples into the 3 lanes, but it seems Six Deck only work when recording by itself ?
