RE: Roland gr55

Cool similar things are quite easy to achive on the Elektron Octrack, simple set up a track to record say four beats of input audio every 16 (or 32, 25, 64 or ..) beat and let that for beat snippet be looped and pichifted so that, for axample it first i root, 5th, 4th 7th (or whatever) that way te short snippet will be arpeggited and resampled everu 16th (32, or what ever) beat.. not set up and other track set to a difrant length and you get the two arpeggiedet patterns move polyrhytomic ( one track could be 16 beat the other 20 for example) ... then you could also let one track be the LFO for an other track...... so basically a "live" audio stream could be LFO that affects pitch or rate or filters or start point of the loop or length or delay setting or distortion or a combination... much fun.. much, much fun and no programming... On the other hand quite often it sound more strange than good.. but it's great fun.
