Mobius - v1.2.6 (Pc/Free)

Mobius is a program for the real-time creation and manipulation of audio loops. It has functionality based on the venerable Echoplex Digital Pro with Loop IV software. It is not a complete emulation, but it does implement many of the Loop IV features, as well as a number of useful new features. Mobius is essentially 8 synchronized stereo EDP's with the ability to copy loops and timing between them. Extensive MIDI and computer keyboard control is available. Audio content may be saved to and loaded from files.

Mobius is free, though I do request that you report any problems you encounter and offer suggestions for new features you think would be useful. It is a Windows program developed under XP and may be run standalone or as a VST plugin. It will run on 2000 and NT, but will not run on 95 or 98. While everyone is welcome to try it, for best results you should already be familiar with looping in general, and with the EDP in particular. I am unable to provide comprehensive documentation at this time, but if you are familiar with the EDP you should be able to find your way around.


* General Reset and Global Reset also return the track control levels to 100%.
* Clear function erases the contents of the loop but leaves it the same length.
* Instant Multiply 2, Instant Multiply 3, Instant Multiply 4 perform an immediate 3x, 3x, or 4x multiply of the loop without having to wait through a multiply mode.
* Pitch, Rate, Reverse now have transfer modes. When set to "Remember" the previous state will be restored whenever a loop is triggered.
* Minor mode functions Speed, Reverse, Rate, Pitch, and Overdub will be stacked on the same quantization point rather than being scheduled at the next point, this allows you to perform Reverse and Speed at exactly the same time.
* Pitch and rate functions performed during the quantization period will modify the previously scheduled pitch/rate event rather than scheduling a new one.
* Reverse, Half Speed, Rate Shift, and Pitch Shift will not take you out of Mute mode, allowing you to setup the desired playback mode before unmuting.
* Pause is now a function that doesn't depend on MuteMode.
* Mobius fails to start when the "Number" component was selected in the main track controls.
* Occasional inconsistencies in the display when using keyboard commands rapidly (selected track doesn't match or two tracks selected).
* SpeedSyncAdjust not working if the track isn't the master track.
* Premature retrigger when synchronizing and going into half-speed (SpeedSyncAdjust not working properly).
* Incorrect track modes after bounce recording (Track shows Mute or Play when it is actually Reset).
* Unable to change selected loop after loading a loop, more generally, unable to change selected loop after entering a "pause mute".
* Crash binding a CC pedal to RateShift and PitchShift.
* Scripts: immediately ending an Insert with another Insert wasn't inserting a cycle, e.g. Insert Insert.
* Clicks in stuttered cycles with Stutter function or InsertMode=Stutter.
