Fw:software multilooper

repost from the max list to loopers delight ..

in short, a mac-based multi-looper with multiple independent loops
synchronized with variable length [not necessarily linked], with tracking 
an external timesource. automated subdivision of loop and corresponding
metronome output. will soon implement rhythm detection on an incoming audio
signal, automated fading and crossfading between loops, tracker-like
interface...  rapid development, currently at t+3 weeks. free. opensource
for the tweakers. currently requires max. creative input highly desired.
work in progress. not tied to industrial notions of progress or linear
notions of time. not designed to be culturally imitative nor deliberately
radical. designation; robust. fractally minimalist. unfettered.

a beos port could also manifest.
