  • Loop based recording

    What would be cool, is that if the recording is quantized, you could have the record option to keep the record buffer open until you press rec to stop recording. Thus looping over and over (replacing the previous recording), so that you could improvise your takes until you're happy with it.

    This is how the RC-505 works, and I think that workflow is absolutely stunning. To just keep a recording open and jam into it with a fixed length, and then stop the recording whenever you feel like you "got" it.

    From a programmers perspective – under the hood, if open recording buffers/streams are not too easy to implement, maybe a workaround would be to create a longer recording/take, that is then automatically trimmed when done.
