Re: FlyLoops update / Xponent MIDI controller

Hmmmm ...yeah maybe thats it.

Thanks for the heads up ... I wonder what caused it to end up in the trash by default?

Either way, I know this is a pretty mac heavy list too ..... so I imagine a lot of people can't try it anyway ..... but who knows.

What feedback I have recieved has been nice to get, so thanks to those of you that have been able to give this a try.

On a related topic ...... I just got an M-audio Xponent and was wondering if anyone else uses this piece of hardware ...... ?  It's one of the first midi turntable emulators to hit the market ..... there is a big push for "digital" DJing nowadays.  I doubt there are many enthusiasts on this list ...... but who knows.  I use it for loop scratching of course, and am not sure how I feel about the software that comes with it ..... (Torq) ... it seems a little half baked.

as per the controller itself though, I have found it to be an awesome MIDI controller ....... I especially like the XY midi pad that doubles as a computer mousepad ..... it's one of those things that someone who should have thought of a long time ago.

anyway, happy looping

Sorry you aren't getting responses.  I actually just found this email in my Spam folder, perhaps that's it?  But I don't have a PC anyway, so I can't check it out...

I get about 100 downloads now a month, but still no feedback from the folks on this group ..... weird that people don't seem more interested .... I would have thought this would be ground zero for new looping device commentary ......

anyway, here's an update and maybe this time I can get some comments .....

I just put the finishing touches on midi learn and bundled a FCB1010 config which should load up as the default when you run the program.

So you can download, unzip, and loop immediately.

FlyLoops has five parallel loops each independently configurable and all that.

I've mentioned all the functions on here before, and they are available on the website, so I won't bother with that again ...... the big ones are real time loop turntablism, and frequency shifting that stays in step with tempo by restarting with the master ...... project heartbeat, I usually call that.

Otherwise, stack, multiply, overwrite, fade .... all the usual stuff.

VST compatibility coming soon.  Mac version after that. 
Currently only windows, and only ASIO.

www.flyloops.com/download.htm for the download

www.flyloops.com for the specs and everything else.

comments, questions, anyone ?

That's right. Aren't you a memeber of the Pave the Earth Society yet? Let's
get it over with. Let the street sweepers rule.
