Loopy Llama - question from a concerned user

Hi Chris,

just had started to play with my llopy llama - short version: works fine
basically, and I look forward when it will turn into a fully-fledged EDP

One question: as I understand it, when recording loops in "endpoints"
mode, with the first press of the record button, you start the loop,
with the next press, you close the loop, and with the next press, you
start overdubbing.

This closely resembles the way the Repeater works and with which most
people (including me) are unhappy: it would be great to be able to go
into overdub right when ending the loop. Of course, as I understand your
UI, this would require an additional button (a "play" button).

I would suggest checking other (hardware) loopers for their interface
structure; from what I kinda read from your post, you're also familiar
with the DL4?

Another thing: I think it's a pity I lose my loop when I change the
tempo. But I assume that would be a really major change indeed.

Thanks for your ear!

Betreff: New Looper: Loopy Llama

I have developed a VST software looper, the Loopy Llama, that emulates
many of the best features of the Lexicon Jam Man, Frippertronics, and
the Line6 DL-4.  I am curious about the opinions of the looping
community towards a looping plugin, and I am distributing it free right
now.  Please see http://www.rekliner.com/?PageID=14 for details on the

Do not discount this just because it requires a computer, it is designed
for REAL-TIME use with a foot controller.  The act of using a computer
live is still in its infancy but it IS starting to happen for the less
nerdy types. A reasonably priced laptop and pro audio interface can now
compete with the latency of a dsp foot pedal (yes, they do have
I have the technical info to back that up at
http://www.rekliner.com/?PageID=19.  I hope this is the start of a new
outlet for live looping,  Line6 seems to think it's "no longer
marketable" and sadly discontinued the DL-4.

Let me know your thoughts,
