a simple sample recorder/slicer.

record a sound. set start, and end points. save to tape.


norns 2.0


key1 = alt
key2 = start/stop record (starting a new recording clears the buffer)
key3 = start/stop playback
enc2 = adjust start point
enc3 = adjust end point

alt + key3 = save selection to /home/we/dust/audio/tape
alt + enc2/3 = coarse adjust start/end points


v.1 - sam - 7.19.19


niiiiiiiice. been dumping modular elements to mess with in MLR for live and camping etc, and was wanting a way to make better loops. stoked!


I am going to add sample loading as well, I just haven’t quite figured it out yet. soon. :grin:


nice! seems there’s demand for some more features in the TAPE menu screen :wink:


This really makes Norns play well by itself being able to tailor samples for scripts that loop samples. Ive been waiting for something along these lllllllines. Thank you!

That would be very awesome :sweat_smile:

I wonder if there would be an easy way to snap to zero crossing like on the 301?


I just pushed a quick change/update. Adds file loading via the param menu.


great! I wanted to do something like this but couldn’t find the time to figure it out. thanks for doing this.

would probably have to be added at a lower level (in softcut module)

noting that it might be hard to discern in softcut with the crossfading

also @Justmat a suggestion if i may: might be good to export with post-roll, accomodating the fade-out time introduced by softcut’s looping algorithm. (write the interval [loop_start, loop_end + fade_time] and maybe an extra couple ms)


Thanks for the suggestion! Advice is always welcome :slight_smile:

Just pushed this change, as well as a small bug fix.

This is awesome. I’m new to Norns, but was already gearing myself up to do a bunch of recording and sampling in Ableton to then put onto Norns…until now!

Im not sure if it was a bug but last night when using this to attempt to record some samples I was having an issue with the script not allowing me to record over 2 seconds. It would keep looping the 2 seconds

This is definitely a bug, when did you install? It should be fixed in the current version.

edit: looks like I neglected to update the thread when I fixed the bug. apologies!

edit the second: @Prnts, please let me know if the problem persists :slight_smile:
