"Each of the loopers profiled here includes the basic set of
features noted above and each adds some unique appeal of its own.
They are all licensed under the GPL and are completely free and
open-source software. Freewheeling
"J.P. Mercury's FreeWheeling is designed for the greatest ease
of use in live performance. The program supports some keyboard
controls, but only a few mouse actions are supported. For best
results, Freewheeling wants an external control surface of some
sort. The author of the program uses a Behringer BCF-2000, a
MIDI-enabled mixer with assignable buttons and sliders, but any
Linux-aware MIDI control surface should work with Freewheeling.
"You can peruse the list of features that make Freewheeling
unique among performance loopers. Some of its attractions include
an integrated version of the FluidSynth soundfont synthesizer,
support for multiple inputs for group jams, and the ability to
capture and trigger multiple assymetric loops. In addition to its
internal features, Freewheeling is a JACK-based application, ready
for connection to a digital signal processor (DSP) unit, a
hard-disk recorder, or some other JACK client."
