Re: Andre LaFosse loop radio
This is very interesting listening -- once you've downloaded the show...
Which is a 75+MB event.
I wish I were on the west coast to see and learn from him. I think he's
using SUS on his EDP such that record and overdub are enabled only as long
as he presses buttons instead as a "latched on / "latched off." I'm
probably saying this all wrong.
What's clear is Andre's a very good and creative guitarist foremost, with
unique and powerful looping chops.
