Re: which looper is my looper??? please help :-)
hi and thanx for the detailed information!
i was pointed out to ableton before, but i rather prefer to use a hardware
looper. i didn't quite understand what you meant by overdubbing - is it
correct, when i record somethin and i like it i can record something
additional ontop of the original matreial . but when i do this, both become
one file and can not be seperated anymore, right?
like for example if i sing into the machine, and then have the voice looped
i can sing another voice ontop of it, but when i export it from the
flashcard it is ONE audio file, right? or is there a possibility to listen
to the two recorded voices seperately?
and next question: i read the repeater is stereo, so could i reach more
tracks if i recorded and panned each track to get eight mono tracks???
