Pear

Dual manual tape player for Arc and Max.

Two manually played tape heads on a shared loop with controls for sample/bit rate and overdub and timestretch toggles. Loosely inspired by the Landscape HC-TT and with arc code and inspiration from @trickyflemming’s capstarc.

Requirements

Arc
Max

Documentation

Further documentation is included in the Max Patch.

Known Issues

(I’d love any advice on these)

  • Noise at start/end of loop (despite loop interpolation being on)
  • Tape ‘degrades’ over time – some audio crackles are created on the loop
  • occasionally freezes for a few seconds then catches up
