Re: new loop pedal

From what I've read, this doesn't sound especially complicated, though
they certainly like to boast about this "patent pending" technology.
You set a threshold and what amounts to a beat count. Samples
that exceed the threshold are considered beats. Keep a running
average of the time between beats. Stop when the preprogrammed
number of beats has been reached. This is not unlike what a drum
machine does to determine the tempo from a stream of MIDI clocks,
though it's harder of course to accurately determine where the
audio beats are.
I would imagine that if you play 4/4 rock accurately with some space
between the notes it should do a pretty good job. But this isn't
going to help you set up an eBow drone loop, or loop the intro to
The Black Page.
