This is the home for my KaiserLooper, an idiosyncratic Max patch I built for my own use, but others have found it useful. If you use it, please let me know, I’m always curious what people do with these things!Creative Commons LicenseKaiserLooper by Jeff Kaiser is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

This is free, licensed as mentioned above. If you want to thank me, consider purchasing one of my albums that feature this patch and its earlier incarnations. In particular: The Desert Fathers, Endless Pie and KaiBorg. Available here: http://music.jeffkaiser.com.

KaiserLooper 2

Allows for recording, overdubbing, chopping, segmenting, asynchronous loops, synchronous loops, combinations of synchronous and asynchronous loops, fully customizable because it is a Max patch! It runs in quadraphonic, but if you want mono, just use the first channel, stereo the first two, et cetera. Requirements: Max 8. Please use my contact form linked above to report any problems. Thanks!
