Axiome looper

This is a nice little mlr-style application that I found. It’s originally put together by Gwen Coffy and supported only monome. I added midi capabilities to it, and currently it’s working nicely with my Livid Block on Linux. Maybe I’ll do some more hacking with it some day?

What is Axiome?

It’s a loop player intended to be used with so-called grid controllers. Axiome is capable of playing seven loops simultaneously and slicing them in the fly. Here’s what’s on the box:

  • Supports Monome 40 (at least it should) and Livid Block
  • Seven loops with pattern recorders
  • Tempo independent pitch shift
  • Midi learn (functionality is quite basic at the moment)
  • Runs on Pd-extended (tested with 0.42-5)
  • A whole lot of fun!

Demo

This song is made solely with Axiome 0.2.
