Loop-based Performance Tool

Radial is a loop-based performance software with a beautiful and unique interface thoughtfully optimized for playing live or composing and designing in the moment.

Radial is based on loop channels represented by circular displays, each with its own performable multi-filter and pitch shifting/time scaling. Almost every aspect of the system can be configured for live performance, studio recording, or sound exploration, controlled from a variety of sources (control surfaces, MIDI, keyboard or mouse).

Main Features:

Radial features complete multi-channel audio I/O support, audio and effects routing, and support for VST plug-ins. Click on the text links below to see images from Radial. Click here to download a PDF of the Radial legend.
