How it works
Simply add some of the included content (generative or Tiklpak audio loops) to one of the cells and then play - it will be time stretched and/or beat matched as necessary! Each cell can be looped, sequenced or triggered (and a lot more customisation besides!) so that you can have content playing against each other.
