open-loop-studio: the ongoing project that will replace your loop pedal

The price point for a nice loop pedal sits around $300. Here is a set of abstractions and examples that works in the same way, and provides a ton of extensible features including precise control of sample parameters, as well as the full flexibility of the max environment. 

Realistically, this project is much broader than creating a loop pedal clone. The ultimate goal is to have a flexible and extensible live sampling performance environment, which can be mapped to any controller or set of controllers.

Much more to come, stay tuned!

dList_slider

This is a small but useful abstraction I made recently to deal with sequential list reordering in an infinite loop. 

Help file included!

If you find it handy, I would love to know about it and see what you’re doing with it!

Hi there!
My name is Derek, and I like to make sounds and software. I figured it’s time to start cataloging some of the experiments I’ve been doing, if not only to have the ability to look back and see what I’ve learned.
So here I am, 3/4ths of the way through my first semester at Berkeley. I’m currently studying psychoacoustics and computer science. 
This little icon has come to define much of my life for the last few months. It’s opened doors in my imagination and given me hope for a future in music that doesn’t include writing Bach chorales.
This blog is about programing, making, Djing, music education, orchestration, cognition and the intersections between all these wonderful areas of intrest. 
I hope you’ll enjoy reading, and I hope you’ll download some stuff and use it in any way you want.
