Re: What shall I buy? EDP or Looperlative?

just wanted to chip in - the LP-1 is really 8 independent loops, not one loop with multiple tracks. the loops can be synced to the master track (which is set by default to the first track you record, but you can change it as you go along), or unsynced.

Thats what I tried to describe... ha ha its basically the same as the Repeater, but with the ability of loops to be different lengths.(which is of course HUGE)

per mentioned command chains and that's something we've been talking about on the forum a lot - the ability to insert a "cue" command into a string of commands, so that any function that appears after the "cue" will happen at the loop boundary, not immediately.

OK you got me...hooked now... And this all INSIDE the looperlative? You mean a mini sequencer, that fires off commands in sync with the clock, the "8ths value" or the loop boundary...? OH Wait... does the LP1 use 8th values or SUBcycles or whatever is called?

at the moment however, you can cue tracks to start and stop at the loop boundary and you can cue a track to start when the current one stops

That seems like MORE LOOPS to me... just a different way of thinking...

i can't really comment on comparisons, because i don't know anything about the EDP, sorry...but i'd be happy to try and answer any questions you have about current functionality (or what might be coming up in the future) and i know bob's on the list if you want to hear it from the horses mouth, as it were!

Well I want to know about pitching, inserting (what kinds) multiplying, and what happens when you UN multiply, do you have something like Mobiusīs powerful Divide function (the opposite of multiply) and (I always ask this rather fluffy question) How does it FEEL... once you are experienced, can you forget it, and just shoe-gaze your foot controller stamping about in your loop, freely and knowing you wont "Stop somethin" or get into a mode you wernt expecting? Or do you have to have a weather eye on the display?
