Reader Otem Rellik has updated his SuperLooper to 2.0, with a new demo. Once again this is free!
A quick overview of my new looping patch. New stuff includes, MIDI slave sync, re-factored loop recording, saving/loading sessions, eight additional loops and a whole host of other small tweaks/improvements.

- iPhone 4S loaded with Xynthesizr as a sequencer and synth, spiced up in Audiobus with Dedalus and AUFX:Dub in the FX chain. iPhone’s output is directly fed into the PO-12 audio in.
- PO-12 is doing the drums
- Music and ambient noises are live recorded on location with a Zoom H2
This jam is a free download:

Retronyms are at a beach house in Santa Cruz for their 8th annual Debacle, a hackathon for developers to try out new ideas. Here Louis shows off what he's come up with in a new feature for iMPC Pro. The Slice Loop function will provide greater control over your slices, allowing for radical tempo changes without resorting to pitch-mangling stretch algorithms.
