ALK2 is part DAW, part looper, enabling you to lay out your song-arrangement templates before the gig, then record and play loops on cue…’s ALK2 is an interesting prospect – it might look like a DAW, but in reality, it’s a very focused software looper that allows mapping of an arrangement timeline of loop locations ahead of the gig. The idea is that you lay out an arrangement, indicating where loop recording will begin and end, across as many tracks as necessary, and then set locations where playback of each recorded loop begins, where effects should activate and so on.

The company refers to this concept as ‘arranged live looping’, and that sums it up well. This is a unique hybrid, taking inspiration from software and hardware to give loopers a new way to perform. And when I say loopers, of course that could be any musician – not just beatboxers – this will work equally well with guitar or any other instrument.

In theory, this approach enables you to focus on your performance, without the distraction of remembering your arrangement, or having to faff around with footswitches or other triggers while playing or singing.
