zenAud.io, makers of ALK the sequenced looper, are working on ALK2 for Windows. The following video has been posted to the company’s social feeds, demonstrating ALK2 running on a PC laptop.
ALK2 was released on the Mac platform earlier this year to much appraise, including a number of awards. For the first time, musicians can control what gets looped, and when -- all within the familiar DAW timeline paradigm. Instead of an error-prone series of pedal presses, ALK2 is empowering the musician to concentrate on their music, and let the software take care of the operational details.
During a gig, ALK2 follows the arrangement you rehearsed, pressing the necessary virtual pedals to arm channels, trigger effects, record and play loops at the right time -- allowing the musician to focus on the performance, rather than on a pedal. Clips are recorded live and looped to create layers of sound, like a traditional looper, but, like in a sequencer, the loops can be drawn, moved, copied, cut and pasted in a musical arrangement.
According to zenAud.io, ALK2 on Windows can be expected in December of this year.
