Luppp is a music creation tool, intended for live use. The focus is on real time processing and a fast and intuitive workflow. With extensive MIDI mapping support, you can get looping just how you like! Luppp was formally announced at the Linux Audio Conference 2012 at CCRMA, Stanford University. The paper behind that presentation is available here, and the video recording of the talk itself is here.
