First, you want to "even out" the sound of the waveform. A waveform with no pitch or volume fluctuations is easiest to loop. I use Adobe Audition's volume shaping tools and compressor (including multiband if needed) to smooth volume. I also use Adobe Audition's noise reduction to remove ex...

Re: Chord progression and melody plugin

That's an auto-arranger.

You'll want to check out BackupBand, especially its "Songsheet Editor".

Re: live looping implementation

Re: Stay Tuned Studio Music 64 debian buster + kx studio based

That wallpaper is horrific. But I did laugh at the attempt to avoid a trademark infringement from Marshall by changing the guitar amp brand to "Mitchell". Apparently Mitchell amps are inspired by Spinal Tap, since the volume goes up to 14.

Just make sure you don't schedule it upon the same day of the month when most developers attend to their personal hygiene.
