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.

This screenshot is from the old version, but new looks pretty much the same!

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-l2ork
  • A whole lot of fun!


This song is made solely with Axiome 0.4.

Development version

I develop this patch alone. Any help is respected! I don’t have any version control, because I don’t know if there is any clever version control systems for Pure Data.
