Demo of the Repeat Looper Rack Extension for Reason. Live-looping cover of such Great Heights by The Postal Service.
This video demonstrates how a Garageband song created collaboratively using sample loops of Sweet Home Alabama on a mac and an ipad Garageband easily converted into a series of Roland MC-808 compatible sample loops and transferred quickly onto the MC-808.
1. The song is put together collaboratively using Garageband on the Mac and iPad
2. The samples are then extracted from the song using the fixed1t Garageband Archive audio sample extractor
The samples are then reviewed to check their type using the fixed1t audio samples data lister
The Samples are then converted into WAV, little endian files and renamed in line with the MC-808 fast sample loading convention, using the fixed1t Garageband to MC-808 sample convertor.
The video then shows you have to get the sample quickly onto the MC-808 and play them.
Please rate the video and leave comments.
This is a demo and beta call for a new Reason Rack Extension called Repeat. It’s a real-time, 4 channel, first-loop enabled looper.
Watch as Joris Voorn explains how he uses Ableton Live’s automation on the envelope shaper to edit and rework stock samples and loops into something custom and unique.

Erik Sigth has introduced Nils, a real-time bitcrusher, sampler and looper for iOS.
Here’s what he has to say about Nils:
Nils is a real time sound effect machine with a minimalistic looper. It comes with bitcrush, delay and gain for distortion. As input you can use the internal microphone, your earpods or accessories like iRig. Can also be used as a sampler, by holding the delay buffer and changing its phase. Lo-fi looping for both beginners and professionals.
- Real time.
- Sample rate (1 Hz – 44100 Hz).
- Hold delay buffer.
- Play delay buffer.
- Gain (goes up to 11).
- Tape looper.
- Export (email, soundcloud, MAPI audio copy).
How to map the Korg NanoPad to work like a Korg KaossPad in Looper mode. Using Ableton Live. This video takes a look at using the Korg NanoPad with Ableton Live for Kaoss Pad type effects
Both, a cuicuit-bent Korg Monotron and a Nanoloop (Synthesizer and Sequencer on Nintendo Gameboy) are synced by the trigger impulses sent by a Roland TR-626 drum computer.
This allows to filter the raw chiptune sound of Nanoloop by the analog filter of the Monotron. The retrigger of the Monotron LFO is the red wire. The sync mod is done like shown here: http://stevewoodward.posterous.com/lfo-reset-point-on-korg-monotron

This part may only be 11 seconds long, but it’s my favorite sound that I’ve made with the Kraftzwerg to this day. In previous parts, I wasn’t going for anything specific. This time, I wanted to make a classic trance percussion loop. Hope you enjoy it.
