Introducing The Bastl Midilooper


Bastl Instruments

Price excluding tax: 239€ - comes to $283.44. Pics with press release below.

"Midilooper is a device that listens to MIDI messages (control information about notes, dynamics and other parameters) and loops them in a similar way an audio looper would loop pieces of audio. However, loops of MIDI messages remain in the control domain, which means a lot of other processes can happen on top of them - timbre modulation, envelope adjustments etc.

Setup 1:
Juno 106 MIDI OUT into MIDI Looper MIDI IN
MIDI Looper MIDI OUT into Juno 106 MIDI IN
SYNC: Modular sends analog clock and reset into MIDI Looper via 3.5mm jacks
Listening to metronome from MIDI Looper

Setup 2:
Keyboard (Reface DX) MIDI OUT into MIDI Looper MIDI IN
MIDI Looper MIDI OUT into 1983 MIDI IN (modular)
1983 receives MIDI on 3 MIDI channels to control 3 modular voices
SYNC: Modular sends analog clock and reset into MIDI Looper via 3.5mm jacks

(Nerdseq sends MIDI to Reface DX MIDI In to control the sound engine, Local control on Reface DX is turned off)

Setup 3:
Roland SPD-SX (drumpads) MIDI OUT into MIDI Looper MIDI IN
MIDI Looper MIDI OUT into Roland SPD-SX (drums) MIDI IN - MIDI Channel 1
MIDI Looper MIDI OUT 2 into Microgranny 2 (glitch) MIDI IN - MIDI Channel 2
SYNC: OP-Z mini jack MIDI OUT (from OP-LAB Module) into MIDI Looper mini jack (MIDI) Clock IN
Listening to metronome from MIDI Looper

OP-Z plays chords and bass
Local control on SPD-SX is turned off

Setup 4:
Moog Sub Phatty MIDI OUT into MIDI Looper MIDI IN
MIDI Looper MIDI OUT into Moog Sub Phatty MIDI IN
MIDI Looper is in Free running mode (no clock needed)

Setup 5:
Keyboard (Reface CP) MIDI OUT into MIDI Looper MIDI IN
MIDI Looper MIDI OUT into Reface CP (e-piano) MIDI IN - MIDI Channel 1
MIDI Looper MIDI OUT 2 into Roland D-05 (pad) MIDI IN - MIDI Channel 2
Roland D-05 MIDI OUT to Make Noise 0-coast (arp) MIDI IN - MIDI Channel 3
SYNC: Roland TR-08 (drummachine) MIDI OUT to mini jack MIDI adaptor to MIDI Looper minijack MIDI Clock IN
Listening to metronome from MIDI Looper
TR-08 trigger out to 0-Coast Gate input
Reface CP Local control OFF
D-05 MIDI Thru ON"


"Bastl is more than excited to announce the Midilooper! Rather than being a sequencer, it is a device inspired by audio looper style workflow with a really fast, performative, single gesture interface.
Looping is a blazing fast way of music making and looping in the control signal domain is a key feature that allows for all remaining parameters of your device to be tweaked and modulated on top of the looped sequence... or MIDI CC looped!

Midilooper has been in development for over 3 years and several iterations of the control interface and connectivity have been extensively tested within the context of a live performance. It has the ability to bring a live setup or a studio to new life and make you explore your gear in a refreshing, hands–on manner.
Midilooper can be synchronised to MIDI or analog clock and it can also run on its own (tap tempo/free running). It has 3 voices that can each be assigned to a different MIDI channel, allowing it to control and loop 3 individual units of gear. Each voice can be individually recorded, muted, overdubbed, or cleared.

Midilooper also offers some basic processing of the recorded information: transposition, velocity locking and shifting, quantisation, shuffle, humanisation (random variations of velocity), adjusting the length of the loop, or doubling and halving of playback speed.

In addition, it features CV and trigger inputs for seamless integration with modular synths: reset, retrigger, velocity, and transpose. It can also be controlled with foot pedals.
