Re: Anyone here never livelooped?
Live looping is a small part of what I do, but for me the cool thing about
this site is that it focuses mainly on THAT part of looping. If I want to
discuss the intricacies of creating loops in the studio or for recording,
I can think of at least a dozen great forums frequented by highly
knowledgable studio professionals where I can look or ask for what I need
However, if I want to learn about how to get more out of my EDPs and get
ideas for looping in real time in front of an audience--this is where I
come. This forum is highly specialized, I like that.
By the same token, in addition to looping, I am a guitarist and an AxeFx
user as well as being a total analog Roland gear junkie and despite the
fact that the music I create with them is highly repetitive, I suspect
that very few members here share my enthusiasm. When I discuss AxeFx
settings or 303 patterns, there are other places I go--even though I
technically create "loops" with all of my gear.
I think by becoming "all things to all men" this site would lose what is
so special about it.
Another thing to consider is the format of this forum--it isn't the
standard discussion forum--unless one wants to plough through the
discussions that are saved on the webpage, one has to get individual mails
or digests sent to a computer--even then we have to sift through those to
find what we are interested in.
I dread my mailbox filling up with discussions about Britney or anyone
else who happens to use looping in the studio. I would be forced to
unsubscribe due to the sheer volume of communication about things that do
not interest me in the least.
That's my $.02 anyway.
