Varispeed tape machine style


It would be fantastic if the loop recording mode could be locked to the tempo speed.
The tempo would directly vary the global clock frequency .
It would then work like a good old tape machine :

  • if your music was programmed at 96 bpm , you could choose to speed it up at say , 120 bpm , to record some live keys , vocals etc…and then pitch the whole thing back to 96 bpm with great aliasing and interesting pitch transformation as a result.

This is a classic recording technique , used by many greats from Prince to Jamie Lidell .
Fingers crossed.


Jamie Lidell consulted on the development of the live loop functionality. There are more live loop features to come, but it may be a little while.


Perfect, thanks Mickey for the answer. Jamie consulted means excellent features to come for sure. :slightly_smiling_face:

I agree this would be great. I do this all the time with the Electro Harmonix 95000 looper and it can be very inspirational in creating new sounds. Matching something new to something else transposed wildly yields really interesting results.

love this idea as well. not time stretching the audio, just pitching it up and down like a turntable does.
