SooperLooper Live Looping AU Update 1.6.18 Announced

In the better late than never category, SooperLooper snuck out a new update last week (v1.6.18).  SooperLooper is an awesome FREE software version of the Gibson Echoplex EDP.

.You can download it here.

From the website:

SooperLooper is a live looping sampler capable of immediate loop recording, overdubbing, multiplying, reversing and more. It allows for multiple simultaneous multi-channel loops limited only by your computer’s available memory.

The application is a standalone JACK client with an engine controllable via OSC and MIDI. It also includes a GUI which communicates with the engine via OSC (even over a network) for user-friendly control on a desktop. However, this kind of live performance looping tool is most effectively used via hardware (midi footpedals, etc) and the engine can be run standalone on a computer without a monitor.

SooperLooper is currently supported on Linux and Mac OS X, and any other platforms that support JACK. The Mac OS X package is usable with at least the 0.6 release of JACK OS X. Note that for OS X Tiger, you’ll need to get at least version 0.7 of JACK-OSX.

A Mac OS X Audio Unit version is included which does not require JACK to run.”

This is a critical component of my live laptop rig.  It offers unparalleled opportunities for live sonic mangling.   If you have a mac (or run Linux) you should stop whatever you’re doing and download it now!

(Then if you keep it – please throw Jesse (the developer) some money for the tip jar.  He’s put a lot of work into it!)

Thanks for reading!

    • Hi Cameron,

      You may want to try Mobius – which runs Mac AND PC for the PC side. (http://www.circularlabs.com/)

      In terms of the Ipad, I haven’t tried it yet – the thing is that you need a pretty fast drive and decent memory for multiple loops – so even if it does work – I don’t know how effective it would be as a live looper.

      I’ve run 6 instances of it in my live laptop looping rig – with fairly long loops ——-so you can do a lot with it.

      Good luck!

      -Scott
