playable delay/looper in max for live. a variation on mlr for grids. rough around the edges.
1 track + singing bowl w/ overdub:
a sort-of-polished-up version of of a norns mlr-inspired delay/looper I’ve been using quite a bit for the last year. excels at expressive glitchy improv stuff. many bugs which are also features. largely untested - plz post issues if (when) they arise. don’t foresee a lot of future updates to this, since I’m mainly focused on building some new less glitchy ideas and ports in max with the soon-to-be-completed
differences from norns mlr include:
- a simplified 1-page / 4-buffer layout. lets you cut, repitch, record and switch buffers simultaneously, all of which can be pattern recorded.
softcut, the audio engine is home-brewed in max and has a lot of glitchy/rough edges, including buffer clicks & varispeed record/playback resampling artifacts. think early-2000’s microsound. this is all semi-intentional and I’m not looking to alter the behavior for this app.
- alternate record speed / play speed / overdub architecture. at overdub(fb) = 0, record speed is locked at 1, speed controls playback. at overdub > 0, playback speed is locked at 1, speed controls record. honesty, no idea why I chose this behavior, but it can be fun.
supports multiple instances
open a live set, drop anaphora.amxd in an audio track and record enanable the track. for a 64 grid, non-varibright layout, use anaphora64.amxd
select your 128 grid from the dropdown on anaphora. make sure ‘focus’ is enabled.
press the top left key on the grid to create a loop. make a sound. press the top left key again to stop the loop. you can also drag and drop existing audio into one of the waveform displays.
recording while a channel is muted results in a new loop.
