Recent developments on Group the Loop!
Hey everyone!<br /><br />Here's a little update covering my recent work on Group the Loop.<br /><br />After months of development Ableton Link is now 90%ish implemented. Soon we will be able to keep all our drum machines, sequencers etc. in perfect time with Group the Loop. And with new technologies like Kymatica's AUM out, this is going to open up a world of possibilities. I've had an interesting email from a user wanting to add effects to his guitar, run it through GTL, then apply mastering effects, all on the iPad. This kind of thing is now possible with AUM and GTL!<br /><br />For Ableton Link support i've pretty much reworked the core of GTL and it's now much improved. We can now adjust tempo in real time from within GTL or from any other Link enabled apps. In the settings, you will be able to choose how loops react to tempo changes, either by pitch (which can create some really interesting effects) or by intelligent time stretch algorithms (great if you want to keep in the same key).<br /><br />Other things I hope to have sorted in the next update are:<br />- More audio files supported on AudioShare import.<br />- IAA input connections, so we can connect apps straight into GTL!<br />- A new view to access tempo and clock settings, accessed by tapping the clock.<br /><br />There have been many requests for future features and i'm slowly working way through the list, which is quite big now .<br /><br />Thanks for reading, just post here if there's anything you'd like to know.<br /><br />Cheers,<br />Jack<br /><br />
