Logelloop 5.5 is a major update that brings many bug fixes and a lot of new features for live looping and improvements that are very beneficial.  

From now on, if you do not have a pro license, the application starts in LE (Learning edition) mode. The LE version gives access to the basic functions. The list of limitations of the LE version can be found here. You can ask us for a provisional evaluation licence for the PRO version and upgrade to this version at any time. 

Audio settings are now done in a dedicated panel in the File menu. The keyboard shortcut for this panel is cmd/ctrl + ; 

In this new audio settings panel you will also have access to settings such as driver selection, the maximum loop duration, the number of tracks (1 to 10) and the number of banks in the main looper (1 to 3). There, you will also set the number of auxiliary channels (up to 16), inserts activation, input and output routings, output recorder settings.

The panel used to configure MIDI commands and all optional settings can now be opened without stopping the audio engine, making project configuration more comfortable.

In addition to this there are a number of improvements to the Logelloop interface: you can hide the speed, pitch and stretch settings of the main looper, you can isolate certain tracks when recalling scene memories, we have also added a panel for editing the inserts loaded in the scene memories. In this panel you can copy and paste insert settings from one scene memory to another. You can also choose whether the insert is visible or not when you call up the scene memory.

On the modular looper side, the new “Only change speed if there is no audio” option allows you to load a scene memory in which the speed of the loopers is different, without the risk of hearing glissandi if the loopers contain audio. The speed changes will only take effect when the audio content is replaced. 

It is possible to copy and paste a loop selection from one looper to another or to the Granulaterre. 

Inserts now accept commands generated by MIDI controllers which work in the same way as MIDI Notes, LFOs have been given more freedom, they can now bypass the metronome with the Unsynced mode and have three random modes.

Logelloop 5.5 is a free and recommended update for all Logelloop 5 users. Detailed change notes are available below.
