Key Feature

Let's (Inter-)face it...

...you can do a lot with a little!

The Kaleidoloop features six playback modes, a record button, and track navigation buttons. While compact in design, these controls offer extensive capabilities.

Start with a fresh recording - use the microphone to capture anything from drums to acoustic guitar, the radio, to random ambient sounds in your home. The sound will begin playing in a loop. Use the playback mode button and the two playback controls to manipulate the sound. The Kaleidoloop ships with six playback modes: three speed manipulation modes, and three effects.

The playback modes are coded in Pure Data. Users can create their own modes or upload modes shared with the community. Modes utilize two control knobs. Craft new edits by adjusting the control knobs and/or selecting different playback modes.

Evolving Sound

Sonic Journey

Playback continues during recording. With the microphone & speaker combo you can build on existing tracks in any or all of the following ways:

• Select different playback Modes
• Use Knobs to change mode parameters
• Play different recordings
• Adjust the volume of the playback

...so something as straightforward as a single guitar chord strum can get looped, stretched in time, reversed, have a melody recorded over it, effected, reversed again, sped up, and so forth.  Along the way, each recording is saved so you can revisit that musical idea at any time and/or save it to your computer for further creation.

Microphone & Speaker

Capture the Room/Get in Close - Fill the Air/Whisper

The microphone is clear. The speaker gets loud. How to use them is up to you!The Kaleidoloop's hardware lets it flip between 'documenting the space' to being an instrument adding its sound to the world.

It is flexible in this regard: want to record everyone in the jam or focus on the drums?...position the Kaleidoloop mic accordingly. During playback - do you want its speaker to be a major feature or more of an accent in the mix? Dial up the volume and playback modes to suit!

File Freedom

Disk Mode makes it easy to manage modes and tracks.

The USB-C port is used for both power and data transfer. Connect to your computer and copy your recordings for posterity and/or additional editing.

Playback modes can be swapped out for different ones. Maybe you want six effects or perhaps a variety of speed control modes - either is possible!

You can also copy existing audio files onto Kaleidoloop. Use these files as the beginnings of new tracks or use Kaleidloop's modes as a way to re-envision and remix your prior tracks!
