Re: New User: MIDI software looper in Receptor???

Receptor runs Linux.

Check www.kvraudio.com

You can sort of do a midi drum loop with a SR16 drum machine.  I run my Yamaha DD50 into the SR, then the output to my PC.  Put the SR in record mode and it will keep looping as you play.  It does keep layering so it can get pretty ugly.  You do have to set the number of measures and the BPM before hand as I recall.  Worth a try though.

There are a couple of us on here who have experimented with different
such setups.  I've mostly been hamstrung by the fact that I'm on Mac,
but I've come across one or two things that you might try (the
Receptor is roughly PC-compatible, IIRC.  right?)

Try MidiFripp, a freebie from Nay-Seven (
http://nay-seven.com/MidiFrippen.htm ).

There's also possibly MidiZoid Delay and MidiZoid Looper (
http://perso.orange.fr/numerikart/products.htm ).

Finally, if you can get Plogue Bidule to run inside the Receptor, you
can pretty much roll your own as well.  That's what I've had to do so

Good luck, and let us know how it works out.  :)
