Re: How to always enable "sync" when adding new loop?

This is a good question... there is no way to do it! I need to make it use the settings from the last (or selected) loop or something when creating the new one....

Re: Undo stack doesn't pop off first recording if added more than one entry to stack

Yes, this was done intentionally to prevent accidental extra undo steps going to silence. If you you long-press undo it will reset to silence. Or you can hit Mute, if what you really want is silence. Way back in the early development days I found it sometimes easy to lose track of how many undos the...

You just need to right click the DMG and select Open from there, then it will let you open it in the warning popup.

Re: connection error, no reponse from superlooper

Try the new 1.7.7 release of SooperLooper... it should work with the latest JACK.

v1.7.7 release

v1.7.7 release -- 18 May 2021
- Discrete loop outputs now default to being pre-fader, so the volume controls will not affect their output. Change it in the Prefs > Misc/Latency. Loop volume always affects common output.
- Mac version using JACK now works with latest JACK release from jackaudio.org.

Re: record direct to overdub

You can go direct from record to overdub (or anything else) by simply ending the record by pressing overdub, instead of record. Is this not working for you?

Re: connection error, no reponse from superlooper

I think there is an issue with the latest Jack 1.9.18 that was released interoperating with SooperLooper. I need to look into it to see if it is anything I can fix. In the meantime, you may need to install an earlier version of JACK... but finding one that works for that OS might be the issue...

Re: midi combo commands and Long Presses

For all of the record_or_overdub-* ones, a long-press does an Undo All, reseting the looper to empty (can be redo'd).

You'll probably have to experiment to see what commands you find the most useful for your particular style of looping....

Re: Raspberry Pi4 and SL?

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...
