Lloyd Barrett - NM with Loopstation and Samplr

MATRIXSYNTH found this video from Lloyd Barrett using his shiny new Beatstep to sequence a Nord Modular, which is being looped and mashed up in an RC-505 Loopstation, whose output is being sampled by Samplr. The results are eerie.

Crank this up, it's very quiet and there is a lot of texture detail you might miss!
