Shifty looping, like traditional looping, can generate metric material of arbitrary durations matching the timbres, expressive timings and other parameters of an input sample. Unlike traditional looping, it avoids exact repetition by continuously changing the loop points in real time. A simple analysis procedure semi-automatically marks large numbers of potential metrically correct loops.
