Hey,

If you want to add layers on top of each others, you’ll have to have as many recorders (= record~ + buffer~ + groove~) as you want layers.
You will have to do something with your midi controller which says : first time – record, second time – play looped (counter and sel).
You can also have a timer which allows you to long press on your pedal to send "clear" to the buffer.
You’ll have to deal with the clicks at the end of loops (a lot of thing to read about it in this forum).
If you want to synchronize loops together you’ll have to deal with a metro and send to the groove object the duration of x measures to loop instead of the real time you pressed on the pedal.
I have done something like that but it’s very messy, so I’ll share it later.
Good luck.

mmmm.. i can’t understand how to sync correctly the recorded material.. and how to play from the recorded buffer ONLY the loop i need.. i have a MIDI interface.. and i want to use one pedal for activate the recording and deactivate it, one pedal for the "tap" tempo.. and one for to start/end the loop repetition..

i can’t understand how to realize this.. =(

one more thing, i think Florent Ghys is describing an ‘overdub’ functionality? if not, excuse me for misunderstanding(he could also simply be talking about multi-tracking). But if you ARE interested in an overdubbing looper, see the patch in LeafCutter John’s post on this thread which is actually, originally Andrew Benson’s patch:

really tks a lot for both your posts.. =)

i’ll give a look right tomorrow! =)
if you have some more tips to add i’ll be glad to read&try everything! =)

really tks a lot
