Hi guys,

I've been scratching my head trying to figure out how to make an audio looping effect in the FX grid (i've not found one in the stock fx). Something that will sample an audio loop in sync slices (1/4, 1/8. 1/16, 1/32, 1/64) and play it back for a time, similar to what the Beat Repeat does.

I'm sure there must be a way with the amount of modules we have, but i'm just not getting it!

Help appreciated

Cheers Steve

This is one of the first things I endeavored to solve when I first used Bitwig. You're right to assume that a module can do it and the best I found was the ParSeq-8. It will count to 8 and you can choose the length of these counts. From there you can use that module to modulate other FX or modules and even layer yet more parseq-8's to add variation. This is the closest I could get to the same effect. Using bitcrunching plugins and FX, you can get similar coloration you can get from Beat Repeat.

Hope this is helpful and keep in mind its only one approach. I have a feeling there may be a few more.
