What else do you want to know? It's available at a bunch of retailers online and there's a lot of information on the LepLoop blog, which I posted the link to earlier: http://tonylight-leploop.blogspot.com/2 ... e.html?m=1

I got a Arpopone and Mulicassa a few months back, and have been playing around with them for quite some while now.

The multicassa is a nice and interesting box: While it is supposed to be a bassdrum module, I tend to use it more as a generator for quasi-tribal rhythms.

The Arpopone is even more special and due to it's idiosyncratic nature it somewhat "demands" to be the centerpiece of everything I use it for.

I've created a few tracks with Multicassa or Arpopone or both, if anybody is interested:

Here the Multicassa (coming in at 5:27) sets the rhythmic foundation for a vaguely Oldfield-like track:

The Arpopone in full drunk pirates mode:

Both Multicassa and Arpopone were the main instruments for this set of tracks, "Night in the Laboratory of Popular Electronics", named so of course in reference to L.E.P: https://soundcloud.com/udo-gerhards/set ... oratory-of

A quick Leploop question; Are the output CV voltages in the positive range (say from 0V to +5V or whatever) or do they swing from negative to positive (say from -5V to +5V like for example the Korg MS20) ??

Time to add Arpoloop to the title.



Seems to be more of full fledged groovebox a la leploop. Still a prototype but will be interesting to see what will come of thos.

That's a bit special!

Multicassa through the Lyra 8 is very special too!

Also anyone who likes this kind of box should look out for the Oi Kant.

Tony posted this image on Instagram:



Looks like 4 VCOs, plus Cassa and Snare. Rhythm generator which seems based on mixing clock divisions, probably similar to the Multicassa. Arpeggiator similar to the Arpopone then, I guess. There’s a switch for “easy arpeggio” and “nice scale” :D

Anyone have one that lives in the US? I've bought one, but need to find the right power plug for it, as the one I got comes with a EU plug.

Which instrument do you have? This thread discusses all of the LepLoops.

Their PSUs are mostly 12V with center positive barrel plugs though, I think.

The supply specs are usually printed on the panels by the side of the input iirc - have a look and if you need help post a pic...

I figured it out. This was in relation to the LepLoopV2, which takes an unusual AC to AC source of power, which isn't printed on the side of the instrument. Most plugs here in the states are AC/DC so I was having a tough time finding an AC/AC without dropping $30 and waiting a month. Jameco has them, in case anyone else is ever needing them.
