Re: Using computers as a Live Looper - software alternatives

Actually Per, i've been thinking of having both ways possible but right now
it's the first way, i.e. the plugin will wait untill the end of the loop 
then start recording a new loop-length.

What i'm also thinking is that maybe it would be nice to have an
"auto-duplicate" (kind of like the multiply-function on the EDP), so that 
the plugin goes into Record Loop Length and it reaches the endpoint of the
last recorded length, then as it should it continues beyond that point
playing only silence at the moment, but i'm thinking it could be cool to
autorepeat the last loop so you can do multiplication by 1.5 or so. Anyway,
that will be a feature also. ;)
