Sorry, Windows Users! Free Live Looping Sampler Just For Mac, Linux

live-looping-sampler

Free Mac Music Software: Sorry, Windows-based musicians, but this freebie is just for Mac & Linux users.

SooperLooper is a live looping sampler capable of immediate loop recording, overdubbing, multiplying, reversing and more. It allows for multiple simultaneous multi-channel loops limited only by your computer’s available memory.

The application is a standalone JACK client with an engine controllable via OSC and MIDI. It also includes a GUI which communicates with the engine via OSC (even over a network) for user-friendly control on a desktop. However, this kind of live performance looping tool is most effectively used via hardware (midi footpedals, etc) and the engine can be run standalone on a computer without a monitor.

SooperLooper is currently supported on Linux and Mac OS X, and any other platforms that support JACK. The Mac OS X package is usable with at least the 0.6 release of JACK OS X. Note that for OS X Tiger, you’ll need to get at least version 0.7 of JACK-OSX. A Mac OS X Audio Unit version is included which does not require JACK to run.

See the SooperLooper site for details.

  1. Was excited until I downloaded it. The interface is horrible. It is, by any standard, an anti-interface. We're talking Star Trek TNG fail. Even the preference window is fail.

    The "Jack" thing is awful as well. I wouldn't trust either one of them on my system. I'll stick to Ableton's Looper. With all of it's shortcomings, as least it is coherent.

  2. God, This shit sucks butt. i can do better beatboxing underwater without hands while biteing sharks. and eating nails.
