It’s a Loop slicer and rearranger with some weird
FX. So you load in a drum loop wave, set the tempo, and LoopDrive slices
it into beats. Now you can use the build-in sequencer grid to rearrange
the beats. There is also a “reverse sequencer” which enables you to play
selected beats backwards. After rearranging the loop you can apply a
filter, bit crusher, distortion, overdrive and even a grain FX. There’s
also the possibility to set the FX order, which gives you more control
over the FX.
This is a versatile Rhythm machine for backing drums percussion so
definitively not an 808 or 909 type thingie. It features 6 instrument
parts / slots to choose from 512 inbuilt drum & percussions sounds.
There are two step sequencers one for setting up the beat steps in
groups of 4 x 8 steps (or 4 x half a bar)labeled A1, A2, B1 & B2, while
the 2nd sequencers on the left allows you to control a sequence of the 8
step beat groups in 16 steps. Thus it is easy to get variations without
having to program complete 16 step bars.
In addition to that there is an Auto Track Mute feature for tracks 4, 5
and 6 to have one or two tracksmuted for a certain range.
