Last year, I poked my nose around on the LD mailing list, doing some
development on a MSP-based multi looping tool. The vision was to have many
tracks of simultaneous looping, with different lengths, playing at the
same time. New tracks could be brought in live or from disk. I created a
prototype version, minus store and retrieve, which allowed me to improvise
many parts. One of the advantages this had over EDP is that it allowed me
to build a piece up, down, or sideways-- weaving in new tapestries without
the linear framework of a single delay line. The next step is to integrate
real-time pitch and tempo shifting on each live loop to create a kind of
live 'ACID', and to allow live resampling and cutting of loops triggered
across a MIDI keyboard, which I think would be nice for performance.
But then it occurs to me that I would be developing my own looper in
parallel with Gibson. So why not collaborate? Since I've worked with
microprocessor assembler up to C++ and Java, I think I have a good sense
of what the hardware is capable of, and I certainly have a lot of vision
invested in the future of this way of creating sound.
Would you let me know what you think?
