Re: Tempo does not show up in meter

You can adjust the loop memory when you create the loop itself. Use Add Custom Loop... and set the maximum loop memory time to whatever you want!

Re: Adding Pops and clicks to recording issue

That's crazy! I've never seen anything like that happen before! Are those in the actual recorded loop playback in SL? Can you do a bounce to a WAV file and post a link to it so i can analyze it in an audio editor?

Re: DAW Setup

You would need to add sends in all your tracks that you want to get into SL, and have them sending to a dedicated bus/track that SL is inserted in. That way SL hears everything that you send to it, but you can take the output of that SL bus/track and possibly send it to another track for recording o...

Re: Recording Quality

Greg, it just sounds like you have a stereo input, but used a mono loop instance. Be sure to create a stereo loop instance (you may need to delete the existing one first, then create new stereo looper(s) from the main menu). You can set in the SL prefs what the default number of channels you want fo...

Re: Newbie question: How do I select input for mono track

If you generally only want to record one input at a time, use mono loop instances in SooperLooper, and instead of using the common_in_*, use the loopX_in_1 ports and don't route your capture ports to common_in* at all. For example, make two different loop instances in SL, both mono, use the first on...

Re: Raspberry BB & Sooperlooper controller

The BeatBuddy does send MIDI clock start messages when it starts, so SL should be doing the right thing and know when the first beat of the cycle is, as long as you start the beat buddy first.

You should also go ahead and turn on the "play sync" toggles for each loop as well as "sync".

Re: Raspberry BB & Sooperlooper controller

You are going to want to use the "cycle" setting for the quantize control, and set the 8ths/cycle control to the length of the cycle you want to quantize to. So for 4/4 music, if you want to quantize to a bar, set 8ths/cycle to the number of 8ths in a 4/4 bar, which is 8. if you want two bars it wou...

Thanks, the apps and plugin should now be all properly signed ... do a re-download of the SooperLooper-64bit-1.7.4.dmg and re-install the plugin and application.

Re: How to stop a recording with keybinding?

When you use the keybindings they will operate on the currently selected loops, and if you don't see a selection that means ALL loops are selected. Use the number keys to select the loop you want to use with keybindings, where 1 is the first loop, and 0 selects all loops.

Re: Which buttons should I press to simply double a loop ??

The Multiply feature won't instantly double/triple/etc the length of a loop, since this is more of a real-time looper, you hit multiply and then have to let it continue in the "multiply" until it goes into the next loop iterations, and you finish the multiply when it is long enough for you.

MIDI Clock doesn't work that way... it is always a fixed 24 ticks per quarter note (beat). As for why you are having issues with the MIDI clock sync features in SL, there could be many reasons, and I would need to investigate to see what might be going on.

You can bind any of the loop commands to "all loops" by specifying it in the binding. You can't do it with the learn function, you have to go into the midi bindings page and set it up (or modify it) there. The mute_trigger command should do what you want with a binding to Loop # = All. If you have i...
