Re: to midi or not to midi
Go MIDI for sure. If you're playing with a drum machine or sequencer,
I can't imagine how you could get it exactly on. I've tried, and
there is always drift. However, a friend of mine is building me a
device that senses the pulse of an LED and spits out a tap tempo signal.
It's for my vortex, which is not midi. It should also work with any
looper that uses a JamMan/Vortex style foot switch (a standard keyboard
sustain pedal seems to do the trick quite well) I can't really vouch
for it's accuracy (in my case it doesn't really matter too much, as it's
not for looping, but for synched effects) but I'll let the group know when
he's finished. Why is he using an LED light to synch from instead
of MIDI? Because he thought it would be more fun and interesting
to do it that way, and he's doing it for free.
