Looking for a certain type of sampler

Im looking for a sampler, specifically, just a sample player that allows me to play back WAV files and use the Arcs controller to adjust playback speed so as to essentially emulate a direct drive turntable, also enabling me to essentially stop playback and have the playback then be 100% dependent on the Arc’s rotation / momentum. in the same way that if you started playing a record on a Technics 1200, then turned the power off and allowed it to slow down but used your hands to adjust the speed of the turntable to increaste / decrease playback… Hopefully with a choice of methods to control the time stretching from the expected Pitch increase / decrease. or to non pitch based time stretching…

I have previously used a Norns thing called MANGL, which is great and im looking for something new quite close to this, just not Granular in its time stretching…

Thanks for any recommendations.

im pretty sure “arc → ansible → w/” would do this!!


Will. check. thank ouu

Do you use Max? I built a max patch that basically does this with Arc. Or are you looking for it to be on Norns specifically?

So what I have built is a looper that lets you load in a sample. For now it automatically chops it down to the first 2 seconds from the sample you load. Arc E1 controls the playback speed of the sample (forward and reverse). E2 controls the speed of the stop (from instant stop to 2 seconds). E3 controls the start point of the loop, and E4 controls the size of the loop up to 2 seconds for now. Hitting the space bar is the “off” button on the record player which causes it to slow down to stop. I think all of the parts are there to shape this into what you are be talking about. If you have any questions let me know!
