AW: HOW MANY LOOPS DO YOU USE SIMLUTANEOUSLY?
I'd like to ask the original poster (who was that again) how to count loops
in that context?
To me, if you overdub different parts (as opposed to just either
or harmonizing an
individual loop) in a piece of music it doesn't really matter whether they
in one loop (the DL-4 or EDP paradigm) or have them running
in separate , controllable
channels (the Looperlative, Repeater, Ableton's LIVE, multiple instances
any software looping plugins
Although one can make an arrangement more flexible with muteable and
separately processed loops
the tendency towards timbral, rhythmic or harmonic (or disharmonic)
is still the same.
Of course, not everyone even used this pargadigm of the looping artist as
'one-person' band, but
I was curious about the people who do use this paradigm.
Obviously, someone like Andre LaFosse, Andy Butler or Claude Voit so
amazing things with
retriggering up to 16 separate loops in the EDP but these don't exist in
same time with each other
(unless one is running EDPs that are synced in stereo).
How many loops do you tend to use in a piece of music.
If there is such a thing as a typical Rainer Straschill set up for a 'song'
what would it be.
