LiLo is a live looping playground created as a performance and compositional aid for musicians. In many ways, LiLo resembles a traditional looping device. For example, it allows for live overdubbing, but expands on the traditional to allow for greater control over individual loops. Perhaps most significantly, LiLo divides each loop into a number of rhythmic chunks (predetermined by the user) that can be added, subtracted, or scrambled while remaining fully synchronized with other loops. This allows for a wide array of phasing and sampling. Developed primarily in ChucK (with the visual component coded in Processing), LiLo makes extensive use of the LiSa (live sampling) library created by Dan Trueman.
