A machine for recording, editing and sequencing audio.
Requires a recent buzz build. There's a generator and an effect, so make sure you unzip them to the right directories. The generator is the main attraction, the effect is only required when you want to record.
Things might get a bit strange if you change the tempo or the song position while it's recording, so don't do that. Jeskola Groove 1 doesn't actually change the tempo as far as this machine is concerned, so that should be safe.

The main new thing is multi-take recording. Each pattern now consists of several waves ("takes"), with exactly one take being active at any given position in the pattern.
When recording, a new take is created on each pass through each pattern. Importing from files or wavetable also creates new takes. To set a take as active over a given time range, simply select (left mouse drag) the appropriate range in the appropriate take, and hit the "A" key (or click Menu -> Take -> Set Active). If a range is covered by a red circle, this means that no take is currently active, and the pattern will be silent for this time.
Takes can be rearranged by shift+left-dragging them up and down.
The input machine has gained some parameters, the main one being the "punch" switch. AudioTrack records everything, but the punch switch controls when the newly recorded take will be made active. Of course you can go back later and edit the active take assignments manually. The punch switch can be toggled in the usual ways (manually, in a pattern or by peer machines), and can also be toggled by MIDI note.
There is also an "auto-punch" mode -- this automatically toggles the punch switch based on the input amplitude. Experiment with the threshold and release settings for your particular input signal.
To reduce clicks, AudioTrack cross-fades between takes. The length of this fade can be changed in AudioTrack's attributes window. You can't turn it off, but you can set it as low as 1 sample which is basically the same thing.
