…is a 64-slot resampling loopstation inside a max-for-live device,
for those among us who are into layering improvised material
rather than moving around midi

it can record audio from “the outside” as well as its own output,
it may record in sync with LIVE or just as well sync LIVE
when you record a new loop,whats already playing is not added to the
recording (unless you choose to do so)
the new recordings are assigned to “slots” on a 8×8 matrix that
can be played ,moved around the matrix and edited.
you can also drop samples into the L64`s “slots” from outside.
theres even a simple sample editor to crop,fade and normalize the “slots”.

the device will backup your settings and recordings with the LIVE-set.
(important:press the BACKUP button! before closing the set)

since its an M4L-Audio-Device (it has to be,to be able to record audio from the “outside”),
it is controlled via OSC.
there`s a template for “touchOSC” included in the download,if you happen to have a
device that is capable of running “touchOSC”.
you can get touchOSC here http://hexler.net/software/touchosc
the communication with “touchOSC” is completely bi-directional.
anyway, i also did external M4L-devices “grabbing” Midi and sending it to
the L64 to play and edit the “slots” or to start new recordings.

since its version 0.98,there will be BUGS
its been coded on XP,so there might be Mac-specific bugs as well.
I NEED YOUR FEEDBACK because this is a big project and I am doing it all by myself
so far.
and I could even use SUPPORT in terms of CASH,haha.theres still a lot to do,like
writing a proper manual,doing a tutorial video…even to eat something sometimes…
by the way it would also be possible to integrate support for controllers
like the “launchpad” or “push”.

keep on looping,

its an M4L-device.theres quite some gen~ inside.

Thnaks for that patch, that’s pretty cool !

A user manual would be very helpfull yes, maybe just one page… to explain notions such as sync with T>Slot for example. In fact only some points, with a quick descprition of all the elements. Beacuse you did a pretty good job on the interface, it’s easy to find out (but for Thru / +PLAY, SYNC and Slot>T / T>Slot).

If I’m rigth, T>Slot ON allows you to sync the playback of the sample with Live, right ?

By the way, when I’m using TouchOSC template, state of T>Slot button is not kept on ; when I hit the button on the iPad, it gets on then off when I remove (switch with SLot>T quickly then always both OFF). IF I do it by mouse, it keeps its state.

Thanks again !

Also : Rev and Roll Functions, when activated, stop the sample play. It is necessary to restart the play. Is there a way to do it "synchronised and automatic" : when I press Rev, the sample will be played rev next sync step with Live, without being stopped before (and same with Rev OFF back again) ?

(i.e. keep the T>Slot function continuous in Rev and Roll, if I understand correctly these points).

thanks for the feedback,
…i definitely have to write a manual and do a tutorial video..right now i am still stuck in debugging and adding/removing features..
T>SLOT :: when you hold down T>SLOT and then press a button on the matrix,this slot will
start playing on the next rollover of the L64`s clock (thats the upper green bar on the ipad)
OR,if the slot is in "loop" -mode,it will stop.
anyway,slots that are "fired" via T>SLOT will just get started in sync with the L64,but continue playing with their own tempo that may or may not be the same as the L64`s tempo..

so actually,T>SLOT is meant to be a momentary switch,in the GUI its different because we dont have a touchscreen yet,do we?

to link LIVE`s clock and L64`s clock,you have to press the "SYNC" button.when you do so,a LED on the ipad will light up,indicating sync (or link) is on.whenever the tempo of either LIVE or L64 changes,its gonna sync the other.

REV should only stop the playback if the clip reaches its startpoint when in "1shot" -mode…
ROLL is meant to be momentary,i.e. when you roll a clip and release roll,it stops
i thought that would be more musical ,maybe it isnt??

anyway,i will check on REV and T>SLOT…its supposed to work…

Ok about REV and ROLL:
When you press either of them,the slots which are held down
With your fingers will roll or play reverse.
Roll and reverse at the same time will not work with slots set
To 1shot-mode…

Hi. First of all, congratulations for the LOOPPAD 64. Unfortunately I found no link to download it. Where can I find it?
Thank you.
