Audio Damage Enso has just been released. Very excited about this product. There is an early bird discount on the VST/AU/AAX version, $59 instead of $79.
iOS version is supposed to drop some time today, and I believe it can run on iPhone, making it very ideal for portable looping on stage.
Full MIDI CC Implementation has me very excited.
It is quite feature rich:
Full Automatic Looping Engine
Enso’s looping engine is simple to learn, but exceedingly powerful, with “one button” looping control, both host-synced and free time.
Dub In Place
Enso can either work like a traditional digital looper, where the input is mixed with the buffer contents, then sent to effects, or like a tape looper, where the effects and speed changes are included in the feedback path.
Define four different start and end points. Crossfade between them, and overdub or re-record within them.
Enso has user-controllable “tape style” saturation and hiss, high- and low-pass filters, and a stereo chorus for thickening and carving your loop.
Full MIDI CC Implementation
Enso has an assignable MIDI CC page for controlling most features of the looping engine. It is tuned for foot control, but will work with any MIDI CC source.
Independent Play And Record Head Control
Both the play and record heads have a through-zero speed control, from -4x to +4x, with text entry values and selectable inc and dec values.
Multi-Format Audio Loader
Enso can load AIFF, WAV, Broadcast WAV, FLAC, MP3, and Ogg in any sample rate, bit depth, and channel configuration.
Enso can save its buffer contents as a WAV file.
Extra Long Loops
Enso can record or load up to 10 minutes of audio (5 minutes in iOS version) in Long Memory mode.
Cross-Platform Preset Format
Enso utilizes an XML-based preset manager, and optionally stores the buffer within the preset for easy asset management. Work between multiple systems without troubles, make a preset on your desktop machine and paste it to the iOS version with Handoff, easily share your creations with your friends, or make a preset bundle to sell, no asset management required.
Fully Resizable Hi-Dpi/Retina GUI
Enso’s vector-based GUI is resolution-agnostic, and displays the same on every system and resolution. Easily resize the UI (per instance) to match your visual needs, from postage stamp to poster-sized.
