Re: EDP Clone - A Raspberry Pi Project

Jesse, Thanks! Would I just do an OSC message as follows?: /set smart_eighths 0 Or is this something when I do in the command line when I fire up sooperlooper. Honestly, after thinking about it and messing around for a while, this may not be a bad feature, atleast, if one stick to the idea of quanti...

Eighth_per_cycle sometimes doubles itself without user input

It's been a long time, but I am back to working on this project again. If Jesse is around somewhere, I have a question for him which is stumping me. I noticed when sending "eighth_per_cycle" numbers via OSC to sooperlooper, such as "5" or "4", that Sooperlooper will sometimes double these numbers. F...

Re: EDP Clone - A Raspberry Pi Project

Gentlemen, Big steps. All components are mounted in enclosure but 1 (which should be easy, just need to find a place). Also, I got a 3d printer, and created custom enclosures for my LED rings. Mounted all loop channels (decided on 5, I couldn't make room for the 6th, but 5 is plenty). Wired everythi...

Re: EDP Clone - A Raspberry Pi Project

Been working on this thing every night for over a week. I won't go out with friends until it's done. Alignwaivers: I should be able to get you some audio samples, and describe things soon. So far, by initial tests, both seem very high quality. I had some noisy interference at first with the guitar p...

Re: EDP Clone - A Raspberry Pi Project

alignwavers: The MCP23017 is for individual LED lights to toggle various Sooperlooper options. It might be overkill, however, I am fundamentally excited about the ability to change quantize settings on the pedal itself (possibly on the fly). This will make more sense once I finish the prototype. I a...

Re: EDP Clone - A Raspberry Pi Project

Updates: 1. New preamp soldered correctly, finally, and tested as working. 2. Also got in a new Audio Injector card, this time the $50 Octo (because I screwed up the first also by soldering). This card gives me 8 outputs and 6 inputs, so I can have an optional seperate output per loop (My guitarist ...

Re: EDP Clone - A Raspberry Pi Project

Happy to get some responses from everyone. I apologize for my delayed responses. I've been waiting to post again until I finish soldering and wiring everything in my new case. I cut and re-welded my steel channel, because the prior case design had terrible ergonomics. Here are some screenshots: 5674...

Re: EDP Clone - A Raspberry Pi Project

Overdub is like playback, but the whole thing is orange instead of green. It gets more interesting as the states get more sophisticated. When I hit multiply, the whole thing turns purple. Here it is near the end of the first loop (when it hasn't added another loop): multiply_before_adding_2nd.jpg Af...

Wanted to show you what I was able to pull off with your auto register events on loop position, and state changes. These are screenshots from a video, because it's harder to post a video than to do screenshots: I have an LED ring which visually represents what is going on with the looper. When I hit...

Re: EDP Clone - A Raspberry Pi Project

Jesse, Yes I did. Haven't posted in a while but I've made massive strides on this project, may have a finished prototype in a week or two. I don't have any technical problems at the moment related to SooperLooper. Was able to connect through Python (I just didn't understand the library at the time, ...

Ok, Scowering the forums, a few posts came up where "got xrun" problems we're solved by correcting hostname issues. Here is one such post: http://www.essej.net/slforum/viewtopic.php?p=40#p40 So the output of "hostname" on my machine is "sooperlooperpi". I changed out the following two lines of code ...

Re: EDP Clone - A Raspberry Pi Project

I finished Milestone 2. I was able to get the LED rings to perform all sorts of tricks based on python code. I am now stuck on something with Milestone 3. Jackd and Sooperlooper fire up fine as a background process, and sooperlooper gives me no errors. However, if I try to fire up a python script to...

Also looking for a solution to this. I am also on a Raspberry Pi, running a realtime kernel. I can launch Sooperlooper and jackd without the XRun error, but the second I try to connect to it with OSC via python, it gives me an infinite loop of the console outputting "got xrun". If anyone even has an...

Why Insert?

This is more of a philosophical question then a technical question. I am in the middle of building a physical stomp-box for sooperlooper which runs on a RPi. I've been trying to wrap my head around the original echoplex stompbox design, as I decide how to design my own stompbox, and I am scratching ...

Re: EDP Clone - A Raspberry Pi Project

One more update: Playing around with the Midi bindings in Sooperlooper last night, it appears that there is only a single-direction of control, from midi interface to Soolooper. This would mean that with an RPI + Arduino as midi server setup, one could not populate looptime or control the LED lights...
