Livid Instruments releases Livid Looper

Livid Instruments has released Livid Looper, a freeware audio looping tool for Windows and Mac.

The spacious, colorful, illustrated interface is designed to inspire the artist, the simple rules provide for never-ending complexity, collaboration on a network makes computer music social, and the open source distribution keeps it mutating and alive.

Livid Looper
Computer interfaces are often referred to as “environments.” The natural world surrounding you is often called “the environment.” We took a cue from the natural term, and created Livid Looper.

Livid Looper features

  • Up to six files loaded in each looper for quick recall and playback.
  • Loop is automatically pitch shifted to match the BPM.
  • Automatic segmenting for slicing up a loop.
  • Interactive waveform display for arbitrary loop selections.
  • Assignable to crossfader.
  • Record live audio and instantly loop it.
  • Multiple audio effects, including a VST effect.
  • Granulator for scramble or time-shift effects.
  • Record up to 8 synced sequences of knob turns and effect changes.
  • Record up to 8 synced sequences of segment and file changes.
  • All actions are quantized to the master BPM.
  • Easy MIDI learn function.
  • Tight integration with Livid’s Ohm controller.
  • Free of charge and open source (developed in Cycling 74‘s Max/MSP).

Livid Looper is available as open source software for Windows and Mac. Download it here.

yedey releases LoopDrive3

yedey has released LoopDrive3, a freeware loop slicer and rearranger plug-in for Windows PC.

I’ve made it long time ago, and as image-line asked me to update it, so they can include it in their new FruityLoops Studio8, I did it. To give users a chance to play with it without having to buy FL-Studio, I decided to publish it here.

yedey LoopDrive3

LoopDrive3 features

  • Built-in sequencer grid to rearrange the beats.
  • “Reverse sequencer” which enables you to play selected beats backwards.
  • Effects: filter, bit crusher, distortion, overdrive and a grain FX.
  • LFO modulation of volume, balance, cutoff, resonance, overdrive and pitch grain.
  • Set FX order for more control over the effects.

Livelab.dk LiveSlice v1.47

Livelab.dk has released version 1.47 of LiveSlice, an advanced beat slicer instrument plug-in for Windows PC.

Changes in LiveSlice v1.47

  • REX import.
  • Resizable file browser.
  • Faster GUI and a new “lofo GUI” for smooth operation on older machines.
  • Improved waveform display: visualizes both the average and the loudest frequency so there’s a visual difference between a bassdrum with or without hihat – even when the hihat is quiet.
  • More midi automation options: slicing and recording can now be controlled by midi (for example: hit a midi-key to record, use mod-wheel to auto slice the recording).
  • Time signature support, durations in bars + beats in both slicer and arranger.
  • clicking the “play” button now results in a monophonic preview mode (play one arrangement at a time, select the currently playing arrangement with the mouse).
  • Loops list no longer auto-scrolls on click.
  • Removed the “clear event” feature (there’s no need to have empty events in an arrangement).
  • Middle mouse now deletes events if no parameter is selected, and resets parameters if a parameter is selected.
  • New option to reset event parameters by clicking and dragging with middle mouse button down.
  • Various bug fixes.

LiveSlice is available for 49.95 EUR.

Kammerl Audio releases Kammerl Kaske Plugin Pack

Kammerl Audio

Kammerl Audio (quite possibly NSFW) has released Kammerl Kaske Plugin Pack, a comprehensive set of five soundmanipulating VST audio plug-ins, ready to be used with your favourite music production software like Steinberg’s Cubase or Ableton’s Live.

Kammerl Kaske Plugin Pack includes

  1. The Slicer – cuts all incoming audio signals into slices and then re-arrange them in a very musical way. Plenty of different rearrangement sequences can be selected to generate beat patterns and breaks just on the fly.
  2. The Sratcher – enables you to do digitally scratching even cooler than hand-made scratching with vinyl: you are always in sync and the speed and type of your virtual scratch movements are freely adjustable and easy reproducable.
  3. The Pitcher – by cutting-up and changing the pitches of all incoming audio signals you can create surprising effects, sounding like switched-off turntables, broken tape machines or shuffled grooves.
  4. The Looper – records incoming audio material and instantly makes a loop out of it according to the timing information given by your sequencer. By changing the start- and endpositions, the duration of your loop or even by modulating the loop size you can create amazing new rhythms and ‘bouncing-ball-breaks’ as easy as 1-2-3.
  5. The Warm Distortion – comparable to the distortion effect of analogue tube amplifiers.

This collection of plug-ins is a cooperation between Julius Kammerl (audio programming) and Klaus Kaske (artwork). Warning: If you have a problem with fantasy character nudity you may want to skip these…

All plugins are released under the GNU General Public License and are available freely for Windows and Mac.

The Mac version currently has a small bug where the plugin’s settings are not always correctly stored when saving your project. This will be fixed shortly.

Visit Kammerl Audio to download the Kammerl Kaske Plugin Pack.
