Re: Automate song for live performance?

I have been trying to figure out something similar for a while as well. I don't have Ableton Live so I don't know if some functionality exists there or not. I am working with SooperLooper standalone. I've finally decided to write a small program to help with a semi-automated way of "scripting" the c...

Try "apt-get install libjack-dev" to get the jack development files.

Re: Build Error in midifactory.cc

In the source tree open up the libs/midi++/midifactory.cc file and add the line:

Code: Select all

#include <cstring>
up at the very top. Take a look at the diff at the top of the thread to get the idea. After that try compiling again.

Re: Bounce Down Loops-Indiv Loop syncto-Bar Count

After slipping around quite a bit I have found that loops drift against the MIDI clock and the settings have unexpected and unpredictable results when playing back new recordings. I don't seem to have that problem when the syncto is set to a Loop created in the session. Imported files (used as a sy...

Just for kicks don't run it with the trailing '&' and see if the error persists. There's no need to run the program in the background.

Re: sooperlooper ubuntu hardy 64bit

The "sooperlooper" binary is the engine only. There is a separate binary that is the GUI portion. Open up another shell and run the "slgui" binary to see the GUI front end. You can actually run the slgui binary on a separate box from the engine since it communicates with the engine using the OSC pro...

Is quantize a global or loop specific setting?

Hello, Originally from the GUI I thought that quantize was a global setting effecting all loops since the the selection widget is at the top of the GUI with all of the other global settings. But in looking deeper into the OSC interface I see that the only way to get the quantize setting is from the ...

/register_update vs. /register_auto_update

I'm trying to figure out the reasons why you would use one over the other. According to the docs they both only send changes when something has changed but the /register_auto_update will only send events at 100ms intervals. I would assume that you would want to use this for controls that would send ...

Cleaning The Slate

What is the best way using OSC to tell the SooperLooper engine that you want to reset everything back to a blank slate (i.e. all loops off and all settings back to default values)? I can see a couple ways of possible ways: 1. Use /load_session to load up some bank session template that you've previo...

Loop Count Auto Update

Is there any way to automatically receive an OSC message when the loop count changes (add or delete)? I know that a /ping will return the loop count but I couldn't find a way to receive an auto_update when the number of loops changed like you can with other events (i.e. loop state, loop position). -...

Hello,

I don't have a mac so others are probably more qualified to answer your question but it does say something in the docs about needing a MIDI patchbay on mac. See the grey sidebar here --> http://www.essej.net/sooperlooper/doc_midi.html

Re: SL built from source - No MIDI

I found my own clue-by-four to hit myself over the head with.

I didn't have the proper ALSA development files installed before compiling. For Debian based distros you need the libasound2-dev package installed before compiling to get MIDI support.

Re: Adding custom loop

I suppose it depends on some other variables such as number of loops, mono / stereo, sample rate, etc. I'm not sure about Mac tools but in Linux I would run "top" and watch how much memory the sooperlooper process consumes as you add loops and play with the loop length. Then you can see what the max...
