MIDI LOOPER

MIDI Looper

The MIDI LOOPER serves as the automated helping hand for the electric piano, synthesizer or accordion player. It helps to perform live sessions as well as to produce complex melodies.

To play accurately to the beat and to record a perfectly played note sequence is a challenge, not only for beginners but also for professionals. By using the MIDI Looper the musician can record a MIDI not sequence and quantize note patterns dynamically. The high polyphony allows complex melodic and tonal variations by parallel processing of MIDI note and controller data. By using an additional foot switch, the musician can entirely concentrate on playing the instrument with both hands.
