Re: Newbie question

There is a setting in the settings window for the max loop length. It doesn't dynamically allocate memory.

Re: Pi 3 with 7" LCD touchscreen

I've managed to build SL on my Pi and learned enough about wxWidgets to modify the UI to remove some of the things I never use and get it to fit on this 7" LCD better.

Re: Trouble building/running SL on Raspberry Pi/Raspbian Bus

I wish I knew why this happened, but it was cleared up by rebooting the Pi. :roll: Meanwhile I "fixed" the washing machine so thoroughly that I decided to buy a new one instead. However I am getting pretty good at understanding washing machine technology (cough). I should take a video the next time ...

Trouble building/running SL on Raspberry Pi/Raspbian Buster

First let me sing praises loud and clear for Jesse Chappell, the guy who initially wrote SooperLooper. The first release was 15 years ago and while the UI isn't beautiful, I've managed to get better results with this than many other packages or hardware pedals. The way my musical mind works, I canno...

Pi 3 with 7" LCD touchscreen

Earlier this year I spent quite a bit of time with SooperLooper and Hydrogen. Turns out I don't really want to focus my music making on Linux, but I do really like the way SooperLooper works for just 2 or 3 tracks and quickly getting ideas down from a guitar. I am going to see if this will work OK w...

Hydrogen on Mac with JACK

This is not so much a question about SL. I spent a week setting up SL, Hydrogen, and Ardour in pursuit of an optimized looping setup. I tried both Ubuntu Studio 19 and macOS 10.12 on an old Macbook Pro. As you may know, macOS Hydrogen has the JACK feature turned off. So I got the Hydrogen code and c...

Re: I want to sync SL to Ardour looping, use stop/start via

First of all thank you for letting us be a part of your "journey"! Since there seems to be a lack of affordable programs that do that, I wrote my own some time ago. It's just a C++-Project designed in Eclipse which is just receiving everything from SL and sends it to iPad via OSC, Launchpad, Midi c...

Re: I want to sync SL to Ardour looping, use stop/start via

I switched over to Ubuntu Studio 19 and am now using Hydrogen for the Jack Timing Master. So Ardour follows Hydrogen as does SL. It's a few keypresses to get everything rewound to start recording. There must be some kind of scripting UI that would send different Jack and/or MIDI commands to differen...

Got SL to build on Ubuntu Studio 19

Took a bit of perseverance, I needed to tweak a config file and a makefile and rebuild various bits a number of times. Took 2 or 3 hours all told. a) In rubberband-1.8.2 Makefile, I commented out these lines (which are not next to each other in the file): # rm -f $(DESTDIR)$(INSTALL_LIBDIR)/$(JNINAM...

Re: I want to sync SL to Ardour including stop/start via MID

I started trying to use MIDI clock and start/stop from Ardour to SL, since I figured that would not be impinged by limitations in JACK. Then I discovered that you can have Core (native Apple) MIDI and Jack MIDI and JackOSX has a "bridging" feature. Ardour's MIDI connections show up as "Jack MIDI" wh...

Re: I want to sync SL to Ardour including stop/start via MID

Made a little progress. - Set Ardour clock to JACK (upper left corner) - sync SL to Jack/Host Now QJackCtl transport syncs with and controls Ardour HOWEVER (and it's a big but) when you turn on Jack clock mode, looping is not possible in Ardour. But forgetting about that for now... So with SL set to...

I want to sync SL to Ardour looping, use stop/start via MIDI

#1 I'm back trying Sooperlooper again. Not sure what happened previously, but there is a complexity hump to get over initially. #2 I'm trying to replicate a pedal sort of setup, not for live looping, but for catching and elaborating on ideas. #3 In order for me to stay in a musically creative zone m...

Introduction

Thought I'd pop down here and say why I am here and what I think I'm looking for. I mostly use a looper as an always-on scratchpad for ideas that come out of the guitar or bass. Or ukulele or mandolin or microphone for that matter. Sometimes I record with a metronome or beat loop and sometimes I don...
