Wave looper PLEASE HELP!!

    May 09 2006 | 7:59 pm
    I am trying to use the waveform and groove to make a loop patch for performance. I need help with how to record each loop so the playback is in sync. An exapmle would be similar to what Jamie lidell uses. In essence I would like to plug in my mic and be able to record up to five loop from the mic in live on stage, on the spot. This doesnt sound difficult but I am hitting a wall on this. any advice or "physical examples would be wonderfully appreciated. PS- I would like to be able to use the wave/groove so I can visually select the parts of each sample to alter the sound.

      you need a time reference obviously. either get sync in, or use metro and an appropriate bpm/beat multiplier to bang every bar or whenever, and then get groove to start on that bang.

      Have a look at this patcher.
      It is supposed to allow you to record one master loop of any length shorter than a minute and then to record two slave loops of same duration. You should be allowed to change the pitch ratio of the slave loops but the patch is buggy (all the stuff with rate~ objects). I have no time to improve it currently, however I think it can help you.
