 This page will attempt to demystify the amazing Flow Mozaic script by @Peblin. There's a lot packed into this script and it may seem complicated to understand at first, but once one begins to use it, things fall into place. This page will attempt to demystify the amazing Flow Mozaic script by @Peblin.

 ===== What is Flow? ===== ===== What is Flow? =====
 Flow records and plays back up to seven MIDI note loops, singly or in combination. If you're familiar with audio loopers such as Loopy, the idea is similar. Record a loop and play it back. Record additional loops to go with it, repeat. Only in this case, since the data is MIDI notes rather than recorded audio, editing is easier. Flow records and plays back up to seven MIDI note loops, singly or in combination.

 +Flow can also be used as a step sequencer, with 16 steps each containing 8 parts (or "sub-steps"). Each part can also record up to four different incoming CC values, which enables easy recording/automation of filter sweeps, mod-wheel, etc
  
 ===== Why do I Need it? ===== ===== Why do I Need it? =====
 There's nothing about a MIDI looper that can't be accomplished in a DAW by looping patterns, or even in a piano roll looper such as Atom. But, it's a quick and fun, possibly more spontaneous way of creating, possibly avoiding some of the distractions and/or perfectionism that more powerful editing environments can introduce. It may or may not be your thing. But it could be worth trying out. There's nothing about a MIDI looper that can't be accomplished in a DAW by looping patterns, or even in a piano roll looper such as Atom.
