Like their Pocket Piano before it, Critter & Guitari's Kaleidoloop seems simple and toy-like, but ends up being really inspiring and useful in the studio and for live performance. It works kind of like a tape machine—you just record audio into it with one button, then it starts playing back in a loop and you have a knob that adjusts the speed and direction of the audio. It has a decent amount of memory, so you can record long segments if you want. It's another good machine for generating happy accidents. Sometimes if I'm stuck on a song, I'll run an element of the track through this and then just start messing with the speed and direction until I stumble on a new way it can fit into the song. It's a good tool for getting out of the grid mindset the DAWs can put you in.more
