@devcurmudgeon howdy, sir!
love the ALO – very nice for looping when i need to do that in a global-BPM-locked context, and it’s currently the only MOD looper that does that!
however, there’s one thing i need to do, which doesn’t seem to be possible: start loop playback at a beat that doesn’t correspond to beat 1 of the currently running loop length. i’d still like it locked to the BPM, just with the ability to start playback on ANY beat (and, ideally, stop playback, before the loop end as well).
i.e. when a loop’s button is toggled off, it keeps playing until the end of the loop, and then if i wait until after beat 1 of the loop length to toggle it back on, playback doesn’t start until beat 1 comes around again.
yes, i know that’s how ALO is designed to work. …and that’s a great feature sometimes, but it would be super-nice to have a mode in which playback starts or stops at the beat immediately after the button is toggled.
i thought perhaps i could fake something like that by stopping host transport, hoping the loop might start playing when i start transport again, but it seems ALO dumps its loops when transport is stopped.
any thoughts about this sort of function?
