loop2 is a polyphonic version of the loop1 drum sequencer. There are 9 instruments which can played by pressing the computer keyboard characters "1" through "9" which play various General MIDI percussion instruments on MIDI channel 10 (offset 1). The default instruments are:
1 LOW_TOM 6 MUTE_CUICA 2 LOW_MID_TOM 7 OPEN_CUICA 3 HIGH_MID_TOM 8 MUTE_TRIANGLE 4 HIGH_TOM 9 ACOUSTIC_BASS_DRUM 5 HI_BONGO 0 REST
The primary implementation for the loop2 program is similar to the loop1 program but there are nine parallel arrays instead of one array.
Note that in this program attack-velocity control is possible. All instruments are played at the attack velocity specified in the performance array.
In the loop program, you can save or load three patterns from a text files called "loop1.txt", "loop2.txt", and "loop3.txt".
Here are some rhythmic patterns which can be loaded into the loop.exe program (after renaming them "loop.txt")
The syntax for loop files is as follows:
