I will play to a click track emanating from a DAW. The DAW will be aware of a linear movement forwards through time (basically, a playhead moving through the session).
I play guitar through an amp. I want to record the sound coming out of the amp and send it to the DAW. With that input signal, I want the DAW to execute a bunch of predetermined things. For example, "Take the signal input from measures 4-8, copy, and paste at measure 16 in track 3, 52 in track 6, etc." Another example: "At mm.18, send midi signal X to the the pedalboard".
This is all in the hope of making an automated looping station where I don't have to touch anything, and the only thing needed it to cue the beginning of the predetermined track.
Who knows how I can make this happen?
