    Super-Looper


    This project is a Max/MSP patch that uses eight buffers for loading a sound file in it or record sound live, and process it, as described above.

      Hi Christoper
      Nice tool!! I'm a bassclarinetist from Switzerland and sometimes into looping. I would love to try your Super-Looper. Is it possible to post it?? Thanks! Christoph

      Hi Christopher,
      This patch looks wonderful. I too would like to try out this patch. Could you share it?
    • Dec 08 2015 | 3:52 pm
      Hi, I am currently abroad for a course until sunday. When I return, I want to improve the patch, as there are some aspects that I am not very satisfied with. If you want, I can send you a „beta-version“ in advance to test it. Once the patch is finished and the documentation is complete, I will also post it here. But this will take some time. @Christoph: Funny coincidence is, that I am at Switzerland (Basel) and just talked yesterday with a bassclainetist about using this patch in a performance together.

      Hi, happy new year! Yes I can definitely do that. Unfortunately I had little time to work on the patch recently, but now it’s almost done. I’ll hopefully be able to send it to you tomorrow.
      Best regards, Chris

      Has anyone tried to make a version for the nanoKontrol? I'm chipping away at it but its pretty slow going...
    • Feb 13 2016 | 10:59 pm
      Hey atrickp, I’m not sure if I got your question right, but I hope, this description will help you. This patch uses 8 loopers at a time, so you will need to be able to switch between 8 banks, sending midi data on channel 1 to 8 respectively. I use a Behringer BCF2000, but I think the Korg Nano Kontrol is similar. Please note, that all global messages like main volume of each looper are sent on midi channel 16. This might seem complicated, but is because I also use a Novation Nocturn controller to have the most important functions like main volume or monitor volume of each looper directly accessible. I will now describe the settings (the way I use it) for channel 1, the other 7 are analog to that. Bank 1: fader 1 would be the volume for looper one, midi channel 16 CC 17 range 0-127. Fader 2 center position of the sample for looper one, channel 1 CC 10 range 0-127. Fader 3 playback speed, channel 1 CC 11 range 0-127. (You can get all details from the midi CC list I sent you, it would be too long to write everything here, so I will just explain how my controller is set up.) Fader 4 would be playback range, fader 5 volume delay, fader 6 feedback delay, fader 7 sample and hold frequency, fader 8 sample and hold volume (channel 16 CC 26). With the 8 encoders it would be encoder 1 for panning left-right, encoder 2 windowing value, encoder 3 windowing fade in, encoder 4 windowing fade out, encoder 5 delay time, encoder 6 eq frequency, encoder 7 eq resonance (q), encoder 8 eq gain. Button 1 start/stop recording, button 2 activate/deactivate reverb, button 3 activate/deactivate eq.
      So you have to set up about 20 messages for 8 channels to make everything work. It took me hours to do that on my controller, but for me it was worth the pain. I’m currently working on a preset file for the BCF2000. If you want to, you can add more banks to have for example one bank with all 8 main volumes on the 8 faders or to have a separated monitor volume for each channel, if you want to listen to a certain looper via headphones (monitor out would be output 13 and 14 on your sound card unless you change it at the bottom of the patch).
      I hope, my short manual helped you set up the patch and feel free to ask, if you have any more questions. All the best, Chris
    • Feb 14 2016 | 9:57 pm
      Hey Chris, I might be being a bit lazy, but rather than try to set up 'scenes' on the NanoKontrol (which seems possible) I have been using the really handy Midi Learner and Midi Presets from the 264 class:
      takes a bit of time, but I think it might end up being a bit more flexible - basically it is easier to switch control assignments on the fly.
      There is probably an easier way... you know how it goes...
      Thanks for your help and doing all the hard work that it took to make this thing!
    • Feb 14 2016 | 11:09 pm
      I didn’t know about the midi learn function and I also don’t really know how the Nano Kontrol works in detail. Working with the Super-Looper patch, i would definitely suggest using a controller with motorized faders for total recall of the settings. This is really useful, when switching between the 8 banks for the 8 loopers. I really hope you get the Nano Kontrol working with the patch and I would be interested to know, what you can do with the patch.
      Best regards, Chris

      Hi Christopher,
      I'd very much like to try your patch, I'll be needing a loop station for live record/loop/play of actor voices. Unfortunately I won't have the time to research as much as I'd need to create my own from scratch so I'd be thrilled to give Super-Looper a try. miguel.curado@gmail.com
