Expert Sleepers has released version 2.1.0 of Augustus Loop, a tape-based delay effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

v2.1.0 adds some new functionality to Augustus’s MIDI/OSC and GUI scripting.

These new features were developed after a request from Axel Baesler, who has used them to make a fairly complex script based on my Multilooper script. He’s also made a custom GUI to go with the script, and provided a sample Live set and even a FCB1010 footcontroller patch to use with it.

Changes in Augustus Loop v2.1

  • Timing functions – In MIDI/OSC scripts you can now
    • get the time between two events.
    • ask for a function to be called after a certain amount of time, or regularly at a specified interval.

    Using these functions you can do useful things like distinguish between short and long footpedal presses, or detect double taps etc.

  • GUI indicators for MIDI/OSC script status – A new form of the existing ‘indicator’ GUI item has been added, together with some corresponding MIDI/OSC script functions, to allow you to create GUI elements that reflect the state of scripted variables.

Augustus Loop is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for $49 USD. A demo can be downloaded here.
