So I’m getting very interested in live sample start time & loop point modulation on pitchshifted samples (eg playing a loop back at +/- x semitones, but using pitchshifting/timestretching rather than simple playback speed modulation, to maintain the timing of the loop.) I also want the sample start point and sample loop start/end points to be locked to tempo sync (eg, 4 quarter notes, 3 16th notes, whatever)
I’m wondering if there is a module that will let me do this in hardware, controlling the start/loop/end points with MIDI or CV.
I don’t care if it is modular or standalone. I currently do what I describe above in max/msp but have always preferred working on dedicated hardware.
Can I do it on the octatrack or digitakt? I owned an octatrack a long time ago but recall sample start time, etc just being an arbitrary time parameter rather than a tempo/clock division.
Obviously if it was modular gear the time / tempo sync would probably be irrelevant, I’d just need the ability to set sample start / loop / end point by cv. Ideally I would like polyphonic sample playback, but I suppose I could manage with like multi-voice/timbral and loading the same sample in each slot.
