Device Overview

Name/Version: Midi Loop Drawer Sequencer 1.0
Author: floszk  
Description: Midi Loop Drawer is a simple sequencer made to draw and create loops of MIDI notes. Choose the loop’s length (in seconds or bars), choose the number of notes you want into the loop, define ranges for velocities & notes duration, then Draw and play ! Two versions are included : embeded into tracks effects’s area / wide screen standalone window.

#Device location
Put the device on a midi track before a midi instrument.

#Trigger loop
Set the trigger mode : free or quantized (choose the quantization). Quantized implies to start the Ableton Live’s transport.

#Number of notes & Loop’s length
Set the number of notes you want into your loop (from 1 to 128). Set the loop’s length in bars or seconds (from 0.5 to 15 seconds, or from 1 to 32 bars). Play with these values when loop is running for cool effects.

#Drawing range
Define the lowest/highest notes you need to draw.

#Velocity & Duration ranges
Velocity : from 0 to 127.
Duration : from 10 ms to 1.5 seconds.
Random values will be triggered for each note when loop is playing. Setting same min and max will lead to fixed value (no random).

Play / Stop (Play depends on free or quantized mode). Resync : re-play loop. Directions : Forward / Backward / Ping-Pong including bounds / Ping Pong excluding bounds.

#Horizontal & Vertical selectors
Select and remote notes. Useful for midi control.

#Track’s volume control
A slider to remote the track’s volume is available for the standalone version.

#Midi mapping
Numboxes, buttons and sliders are mappable.

Notes’s colors are repeating each 8 notes. Ex : grey will appears for the 1st, 9th, 17th etc …, blue at 8th, 16th, etc … easy way to find which note is playing at which moment of the loop !

How is the initial step length and step velocity determined? By random?

Hello !

by length you mean "the note duration" ?
So yep, duration and velocity are picked up randomly into their respective ranges at each sequencer's step.
If you choose the same value for the min and max of a range, this will be a "fixed" value (no random).
