Re:Re: FlyLooper & market potential
How bout this:
For those of us that already own midi controllers (including people who
might want to control loops from a keyboard), I will make this program
For anyone who doesn't already own a midi controller ... (aka joe average
guitar player) there will be an optional USB device that will also work
the program (retailing at about the same price as the FCB1010, say). This
device might include a few extra bells and whistles that the midi
doesn't have, but nothing crucial (some effects controls).
That seems like a copacetic situation, no?
Since this thread is getting older .. I want to reiterate, that this is
something I hope to have working someday ... it's already out there
(www.flyloops.com). There will be a downloadable beta version soon (once
get midi controllers working).
