Re: software based phrase sampler





I should correct myself, so as to eliminate some confusion here.  There is 
no logic in the hardware, you probably could use a midi controller ... it 
would take me some time to code that in, though.  The pedals currently 
register as a USB keypad .... real simple device.  So without the pedals, 
the program is still fully functional (you just have to start and stop 
recording with a mouse or keyboard).

I am amazed that there is no latency concerns, personally.  I always 
figured 
it would be problematic to develop a software based phrase sampler, but 
it's 
solid as any harware solution I've used yet.

The piracy thing is of some concern ..... I have spent alot of time and 
money on this project, and would like to get some of it back.  Then there 
are those college loans too ...... hmmmm.

In any event, I will put a beta version out there soon for all of you to 
experiment with ...
