kollide: tiny, fun loop player for norns

kollide

A tiny, fun loop player for Norns…

Inspired by c&g’s k-loop, which was inspired by their old product: the kaleidoloop.

Load a few tape files from the PARAMS page, and play them in the world’s simplest looper!

  • K2 switch to sample 1
  • K3 switch to sample 2
  • E1 pitch
  • E2 lfo speed
  • E3 lfo amount

Add slow tape warble… Add fast tape warble… Make wild pitch modulations… Repitch stuff by hand… switch loops… Record it to TAPE and feed it back in… a surprising amount of audio mangling fun in a tiny package!

Requirements

  • Norns
  • A couple of audio files

Download

;install https://github.com/cfdrake/kollide

Todos

  • Record input? Tape works for now, but it’d be nice to “collect” loops a la the original.
  • Quantization?

What a nice tool! This in combination with other tape like loopers and we’re pretty much as close to an actual tape loop as we can get. Excited to try this out.

I dunno. I really like this. Anything that loops & mangles I’m in. Had fun mangling & then flipping it over to Lithops & then running it out through my Count to Five pedal for further mangling. Thanks.

Thanks for sharing! Agreed, I really enjoy script → tape → script workflow on Norns. So many fun audio processors.
