zenAud.io has introduced ALK – a new Mac OS X music app that they describe as ‘a cross between a sequencer and a looper’.
Like a traditional looper, clips are performed live and then looped to create layers of sound. Like in a sequencer though, loops can be drawn, moved, copied, cut and pasted in a musical arrangement.
When it’s time to perform a song, ALK follows your arrangement, pressing the necessary virtual pedals to arm channels, trigger effects, and record and play loops at the right time.
