Survey: Echoloop + LG Users: Instant Multiply?

Okay all you Echoloop & Little Giant people…

I’ve spent two days on this problem and now I must come to you :)

Goal: To create a command on the LG that will result in effectively an “Instant Multiply” like we see on the LP1 or in Mobius. “Go to next loop, copy and multiply x 4.” Or: “Go to Loop 3 and multiply x 3 cycles.” That kind of thing.

For the Echoloop, it’s harder that it seems like it ought to be:

The problem is, Echoloop/EDP uses “Multi-Increase” to accomplish such stuff - and that’s great, but it’s also a hassle. If I want x4, that’s *four* tap dance steps. I want to do this in one :)

On the LG, I can execute Next Loop, or Go To Loop, and with SndMulti active in the Echoloop, I’ll be in Multiply mode right away. Now, to emulate the 4 note ons and note offs that four presses of Multiply would make, I can program them into the same LG switch press… but the problem is, it’s very important *when* those commands execute: they must execute *after* the rounding period after I press the “Next Loop” switch, when we have arrived in Multiply mode. Delaying messages by absolute times is supported by LG, but that is useless as I will not always be reliably at the same tempo; delaying by beats in the LG is useless too, as I cannot use the LG as my clock, nor will I always know how many beats are required. 

The LG simply has no awareness of Echoloop states… 

So… anyone know how to make an Instant Multiply using these tools?

And yes - that’s how I’ve spent New Years Eve and the days leading up to it :D


Thanks all - 

Phil :)
