Instructions per Nucleon:

Here’s an all FL live delay based audio loop recorder template I’ve been working on. 

Using delaybank switching between 4 100% feedback 16 step delay banks, so no tempo tricks needed.

Whatever you route to the first 4 mixer tracks will be loop recorded. There’s a click (metronome) pattern with a one bar count in. Play 4 bars of each part, overdub more over the top etc.

Use the dashboard for various controls. Disable 'Record' to play stuff that won’t be added to the loop. 'Delete', deletes what that track has recorded. There’s the output level and a mute. A Gross Beat time slot selector, then a momentary trigger button, which will trigger the selected slot. A filter, turn left for a low pass, right for a high pass, center is off. And a momentary delay send button.

4 simple generators to get an idea of how it works.

If you stop FL you will lose the recording. There’s an Edison on each track to bounce stuff permanently. (I tried putting buttons for this on the dashboard, linked to the Edison record buttons but they didn’t respond correctly).

Highlight the 4 looping bars in the playlist and it will work in conjunction with Live mode.

In the video below [link is on the left], Shaun used the live loop beatbox tool.
The slider above the square is controlled by a MIDI device.
Shaun is turning a knob [on his midi keyboard] that corresponds with the up and down of the slider. [on the software]
FYI MIDI is like having a real, hands on feel of volume, panning, and many tools in music production. It's a remote control for music instruments, effects, and software. Instead of clicking with a mouse, many people enjoy using a hands on device to feel "more connected" to their mix.  Using actual feel definitely has its benefits in an age of clicking.
An example of a MIDI device is here: midi keyboard - sometimes they also have vertical faders instead of knobs, or both.
The slider is indeed moving in the video, though ever so slightly.
The slider changes/toggles the effect [there are many, many effects] and the square button engages it.
