zenAud.io has introduced ALK2, a MacOS software looper that ‘knows’ your song arrangement.
Traditional loopers can require you to trigger recording and looping, and can limit how you arrange a song. ALK2 is designed to be a cross between a sequencer and a looper, so you can create loop-based arrangements that you can perform on the fly.
Like a traditional looper, clips are performed live and subsequently looped to create layers of sound. Like in a sequencer, the loops can be drawn, moved, copied, cut and pasted in a musical arrangement.
When it’s time to perform the song, ALK follows your arrangement, automatically letting you arm channels, trigger effects, and record and play loops at the right time.
Pricing and Availability
ALK2 is available through April 10, 2018 for €159 (normally €199.) A demo version is also available.
