Looping Discussions and Comparisons (Was Re: unsubscribe)
Title: Looping Discussions and Comparisons (Was Re:
Hi Robert, there are two websites, one related specifically to
this list, and one more generally about looping:
and this one:
THis mailing list is sort of an 'old boys network' or like a
neighborhood bar. The future is in the websites.
I'm a newbie, and I don't know much about
this group, but maybe people are unsubscribing because
this listserv isn't what they thought it would be.
I know that I've been
surprised since signing up a few days ago that there hasn't been
much discussion about and comparison of actual looper
models. Guess that's a pretty newb topic.
Also, my question (below) hasn't
been answered yet.
I'm looking for a recommendation for a looping pedal that I'll use for
live solo shows.
I need something high-end that lets me not just simply build on top of
short loops, but also allows me to drop tracks in and out, and to
switch between an A part and B part (verse to chorus, for example).
Basically, I want a pedal that will allow me to play entire songs (in
the vein of Radiohead/Sigur Ros/Boards of Canada) alone and with a
minimum of pre-recording.
I'm currently looking at a few things: a Boss RC-50, Echoplex Digital
Pro, Abelton software (I'd bring a laptop onstage and trigger it with
footpedals), or a combo of pedals that can be synched together.
Currently I own a Line DL-4, which got me hooked on looping but which
has become very limited very quickly.
Any recommendations what would work best for my needs? I can't get
these items here in Korea, so I need to be sure about what I'm getting
before I have it shipped over.
