INTRODUCTION

<a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">Loopp</a> is a software written in <a href="http://www.cycling74.com/products/max5" target="_blank" class="URLcolor">MaxMSP</a>, designed for live-improvising, interactive installations, etc....

<a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">Lloopp</a> started as a sample-based loop-machine with plug-ins in 1998 (MacOS9), as a shared performance-patch of Klaus Filip. The open architecture of the patch invited other programmers to join in and <a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">lloopp</a> grew to a modular instrument with a lot of functionalities on generating and manipulating sounds, and at least a basic open door to video.

Logically, <a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">lloopp</a> was ported to OSX in around 2003. Since Fall 2005, the totally revised hybrid version for OSX and WindowsXP is available.

Besides of the availability on XP, the aim of this new version was to make it very easy to integrate new modules into <a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">lloopp</a>.

Main developers of the current version is again Klaus Filip together with noid (Arnold Haberl).

<a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">Lloopp</a> is freeware, open-source, please note that it is copyleft.

<a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">Lloopp</a> is written by artists who use this very software for their performances.

<a href="http://www.cycling74.com/products/max5" target="_blank">MaxMSP/Jitter</a> is a programming environment specialized for digital media performing or installations. It covers audio, video, sensors, data-management and like most programming-languages, it can help realizing any artistic concepts in this field.

<a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">Lloopp</a>, built in <a href="http://www.cycling74.com/products/max5" target="_blank">MaxMSP/Jitter</a>, is a ready-made interface, facing artists who don't want to learn how to program but want more from a software, than usually offered by commercial releases.

It is written by artists that use it for their own performances carried by the idea, that sharing helps to increase the quality of the artistic outputs and saves a lot of time.

<a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">Lloopp</a> is under permanent development, used by many performers all around the World, who push the tool with new needs and create a network of artists working in different domains.

When speaking of various artists, <a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">lloopp</a> is used by Christian Fennesz, Keiko U. (o.blaat), Taku Unami, Christof Kuzmann, Paulo Raposo, Alessandro Fogar and many others...

Anybody who is into Max-Programming is invited to join in. Refer to the .help-section for building new patches and use our lloopp-list for communication. Any ideas are welcomed as well.

Lloopp needs <a href="http://www.cycling74.com/products/max5" target="_blank">MaxMSP</a> installed. The visual part of lloopp need <a href="http://www.cycling74.com/products/max5" target="_blank">Jitter</a>.

Both packages can be downloaded as free runtime-versions from the site...

Usually it is a good idea to get the newest version of <a href="http://www.cycling74.com/products/max5" target="_blank">MaxMSP/Jitter</a>.

 

MODULAR ARCHITECTURE
-----------------------------

One of the most powerful features of <a href="http://lloopp.klingt.org/plone/lloopp/" target="_blank">lloopp</a> is its networking structure. Every parameter can be controlled from any module and audio-routing similarly goes in any direction. Some 50 different modules (so-called "Acts"), can interact.

Every user can create his/her personal setup consisting of any combination of available modules and saves this as a so-called "Environment".

Screenshot for "Los Glissandinos" By Klaus Filip:

This environment is an additive-synth example. The circle-shaped central patch (vbap@) is used to route modulating signals to the sinewaves. (<a href="http://losglissandinos.klingt.org" target="_blank">http://losglissandinos.klingt.org</a>)

 

Screenshot of "homemade" By visualartproyektil:

This setup was used to project pixel animations on 4 screens. The pictures were sensor-controlled by the dancers.

3 Different Layouts Of The Same Module:

Besides that every module has an own customizable preset-handling as well as the possibility to create individual layouts.

 

PROGRAMMING SUPPORT
-----------------------------

As mentioned earlier, it is fairly easy to communicate with, or integrate own Max-Patches. An object called "Actmaker" turns a Max-Patch instantly into a lloopp-act and there are templates for common tasks, like audio in-out, video in-out and presets.
