radiaL allows for live recording into a loop buffer, and overdub
recording. No undo. Once a loop is recorded you can slice and dice it,
pitch/length change independently, apply a bunch of effects etc. radiaL
will sync to MIDI.
You are right to a certain extent. radiaL was not originally conceived
completely as a live looping tool. This functionality has been slowly
added. I think that it would be accurate to say that the live looping
functionality in radiaL is not presented as its primary strength, yet it
exists, to a certain degree.
This simply by way of setting the record straight. In the interests of
full disclosure - I work for Cycling '74 and one of my current projects
is the ongoing maintenance and development of radiaL.
