Looping 2.0

Registered by RJ Skerry-Ryan on 2011-02-11

Mixxx has the bare-minimum in terms of looping. This is a blueprint for the next iteration of the looping feature. Slated for this feature:

- Beat looping -- set up an X beat loop
- Loop cutting -- halve or double a loop, ideally using a mapped knob on a MIDI controller
- Loop move -- move a loop forward or backward by a beat or measure
- Loop storage in the database. -- cues are currently stored but we should have a way to store and load loops

Whiteboard

This is something absolutely needed. It's what makes a mix confortable and without the scare to go out of sync just because of a bad loop.

This is half-implemented by 1.10 (beatlooping, loop halve/double)

(?)
