Device Overview

Name/Version: Super Simple Live Looper 1.0
Author: jimp  
Description: A super simple live looper controlled by a single toggle that switches between recording and playback. Developed as a replacement for the buggy Ableton Live Looper device for live performance. Although very basic it can be made usable in Ableton by automating the record/playback toggle and the track mute controls.

What bugs you have found within the live looper?

The Ableton Looper caused audio drop outs across all tracks that we noticed playing live and were evident when doing a live recording. Other people have reported these problems on the live forums too.

We didn't use a lot of the features of the Ableton Looper and mostly relied on automation to switch it on and off at certain points in the live set, so I built the Super Simple Live Looper as a replacement which just has the features we need and hopefully none of the glitches and audio drop outs.
