Numerology live-looping set-up (OS X)
I just thought I should post a short note on the new "live audio input"
functionality that came to OS X application Numerology with the latest
version 1.4. This means you can now use Numerology as the host
application for AU looping plug-ins.
I spent one day to try it out and liked it very much. On 56 percent CPU
usage on a 1,25 MHz powerbook I had three instances of Augustus Loop
going. Except for these three audio channels I had three more: the
audio live input, an iDrum and a channel for Apple's Matrix reverb. All
six audio channels had a compressor to refine the sound (Neodynium).
This "laptop only" set-up can create a lot of noise, three loopers that
can overdub an infinite number of layers and be tweaked in real-time by
reversing, re-pitching, time-streching etc.
I patched up WireTap and recorded the first time I patched a guitar
into the powerbook. Not to be regard "a piece of musical work", just a
little clip to show a type of sounds that are available with this very
simple software set-up:
All the best
