Funny, I’ve just been looking at the DLD this afternoon, as well as Nebulae V2.
What I want is something with the feature set of the Tyme Sefari – a buffer where you can toggle recording and playback and have manual and CV control over start/end points and speed, so you can use it as a sampler, looper or delay. Except not lo-fi and glitchy like the Tyme Sefari.
I know upcoming firmware is supposed to fix some of the TS’s glitches, but unless it can sample at a higher clock rate it’s still going to be pretty rough (especially if you want to slow it down).
DLD is not quite what I’m looking for. I’m still trying to understand Nebulae, but I think even if the main firmware can’t do it, a PD patch could. I know I could do this with ER-301, Norns, probably Bitbox but those are more spendy. (I could also see an argument for the 301 replacing other modules too though…) And of course there’s some chance the Clouds successor may have relevant abilities. W/ wasn’t quite it since changing loop times used a tape cutting metaphor, though I thought doing resets via Teletype i2c could be a workaround.
Anyone have suggestions?
