Like a Boss Looper
Jun 23 2021 | 8:05 pm
Hi all, I'm new to max for live and ableton live but I've created something pretty interesting (at least to me).
I want to create loops on the fly, of any bar length, without any count in or setting a fixed length. Like a boss looper works. Just click in, click out, and it adjusts to be X number of bars based on what you've played.
I was able to create a device that does this, and that is midi mappable. Along with some extras, like switching scenes if a clip is in the clipslot and panning two tracks so I can on the fly make dual panned rhythm guitars.
There's barely any latency (although I do have my buffer at 32 because I don't need any effects going in) and it works great. There's some minor things I'd like to improve upon though and I'd like to clean up the code or have someone look at it and see if there is better ways to do it.
I haven't decided what to do with it yet (whether making it freeware or donationware) but if I make it donationware I'm happy to share the proceeds (we can discuss beforehand).
If interested in the device or helping improve upon it, please let me know. Or if anyone knows of any similar devices, I'd love to hear about them. The build in looper is close, but still requires you to punch in/out early.
TLDR: Looper that works like a boss loop pedal in session view. Could use some help improving upon the code and GUI. If made donationware, happy to share proceeds.
