Re: Repeater question, was RE: Digitech JamMan???
Hello to the list.
Talking about Repeater, i just bought a Loopstation RC-20XL and i'm a bit
disappointed so far. Mostly because i can't record several loops LIVE &
then switch between phrases i just recorded. With the RC-20, pressing SAVE
simply stops the loop you want to save. Plus you have to wait that the
loop is fully read to be able to read another, plus the UNDO function has
a latency. With the RC20 I end up playing with the same phrase for ages.
I want to be able to loop but also break the loop, cut it up or get away
from it when needed. Basically i'd like to build a track live during my
solo-sets (you could check my new record :
Someone recommended a REPEATER. It seems to be rare & expansive, even
used. So i'm wondering if it's really tweakable. Can you really record
many phrases live and then play/tweak them by hand, like a sampler but
with possibilities of layering & live processing??
I'm just looking for the right tool. Maybe someone created a real time
sampling patch with Max MSP, Super Collider or Pure Data? Anyone heard of
