Device Details


Name | Version: Noteloop - cycling melodic sequencer 1.1
Author: outsiderspeaks
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: Changelog for version 1.1:

Added switchable trigger mode, allowing the user to select a specific MIDI pitch that will advance the sequence (with optional MIDI thru) or to allow every incoming note to advance the sequence (as in the original version)

Updated UI

Detach pitch from rhythm with Noteloop!

Noteloop is a Max for Live device that loops a sequence of up to 16 pitches, and only advances when it receives a MIDI note at the input. The pitches of the input notes are replaced with your sequenced notes, so no matter what pitch the trigger is, you get the next pitch in Noteloop's sequence instead. Noteloop allows you to create a melody with a number of pitches that's different from the number of note triggers, making it easy to create intricate, phasing sequnces and also features a variety of sequence reset triggers, so that you can constrain the pattern to a 4, 8 or 16 bar loop!

Hot tip: Noteloop works great as a melodic idea generator, but is just as useful on drum patterns too!

Open up new possibilities for complex, evolving sequences using simple tools!

Note: This device is offered on a pay-what-you-can basis - if you are able to, please consider paying above the £4 suggested price in order to fund a free community copy for those who are unable to afford the device otherwise!

I've read the description three times and still can't understand what it does. Any chance you'll be uploading a YouTube demo?
Yes please - a video of how this device works will be appreciated
@posters above it's actually super simple, it just needs to be triggered. it's a piano roll/sequencer - it chooses the notes to play but it doesn't trigger those notes until it receives a note. So this device controls your pitch but you can program a midi clip to decide when the pitch will trigger (or play notes on your keyboard). The key is, whatever you play - the pitch doesn't matter, just the "when". The pitch will be coming from this device but it relies on outside input as to when to play. Super powerful. Reminds me of some devices by "Heaps of Bleeps" that have a similar effect. You end up with phrases you wouldn't have come up with otherwise.
FreddyFingaz is correct! But yes, I plan on making a video demonstration in the next few days. Thanks for your interest!
Updated with a video on the Gumroad page!
I picked this up and I really like it been wanting to do something like this for a while. It does seem to stick on odd notes with a constant sustain. I plan to use with the note up device or the Skinner box time sequncer

was thinking there's lots of scope to build on this , few ideas:

ability to drop a midi clip in to set the notes
ability to play the midi notes in on a separate midi channel
ability to set the beats per note al la m185 seq
*I meant Nestup above not note up. This is Note up!!
Hey leescan, thanks for the feedback! I'll look into the note sticking for a fix when I get the chance. And I'm definitely interested in developing this concept more so thank you for the suggestions too.
