Re: Spawning musical ideas?

No. I use rate shifting. A completely different thing, both
technically and musically.

In the Mobius looper there are both Pitch Shift and Rate Shift
available. Pitch Shift also applies time-stretch algorithms to the
loop and this is not working well for real-time audio as live looping
is all about. It takes too much time for the computer to calculate and
imply the new loop length and the result is a process much slower and
lousy sounding. On the other hand, going with Rate Shift (as is my
choice) gives you instant access to any pitch at a good fidelity but
you'll have to deal with the fact that loops take on a new length with
each new speed/transposition.

This post was a little more detailed version. Hope it makes sense.
