All Repetito commands can be called remotely with a MIDI controller.
It is suggested for you to use a MIDI pedalboard with 10 footswitches for Repetito main commands.
When in Internal Mix configuration, you might also need another MIDI controller with MIDI buttons and pots to manage the internal mix.
The attribution of MIDI commands to Repetito commands (MIDI Learn) is done with a cmd-click (or right click) on the commands on the Repetito user interface, then by calling the chose MIDI command with the MIDI controller.
If necessary, several MIDI controllers and/or computer screens can be used simultaneously to enable several musicians to see and control Repetito together.
Loop duration, MultiplyDuration, AddDuration, Division...>> back
The first loop to be recorded is the main loop: its duration defines the looping duration for the other loops.
The other loops are the secondary loops and are all synchronized to the main loop.
The following commands enable the recording of secondary loops with different durations:
The MultiplyDuration command multiplies by 2 the looping duration for the next secondary loops. It's as if the main loop lasted N times its duration;
The AddDuration command is similar to MultiplyDuration - but instead of multiplying, it increases the next looping duration by adding the current looping duration;
The Division command enables the recording of loops which last the same duration as the main loop - after MultiplyDuration or AddDuration has been called.
This command also enables the recording of loops which last half, one third, or one quarter of the main loop duration - or of the total looping duration - to enable for rhythmical effects;
The Change Playback Direction changes the playback direction, to be able to produce strange reverted sounds.
If some first loops are recorded, and then this command is called, the loops recorded after calling this command will be played forwards when the first loops are played backwards, and backwards when the first loops are played forwards.
