Max for Live *tape_multi — Multi Channel Tape Loop Emulator

    *tape_multi is a multi channel tape emulator.
    The pitch of the loop corresponds to the played midi note (C4= original pitch) and will also refer to the speed parameter as would be the case with a tape machine.
    Furthermore the pitch can be also influenced independently from speed as well as the frequency of the processed audio signal can be additionally manipulated.
    Clicking and dragging with the mouse inside the display window causes zooming in and out to select different parts of the loaded sample to be played back.
    The output audio signal can be distributed to up to 16 channels. The playback speed and the gain of the individual channels can be controlled individually. In addition, various randomization and scaling settings can be applied, that affect the speed, phase and pitch of the loops.
    Further documentation can be found in the Max for Live device if Ableton Live´s Help View is turned on.
