Re: DRIVE the LOOP or be DRIVEN?

well i never said it was.
there was a need. very narrow need, it wasnt available and someone built it.

loopers actually increase the need for what im looking for.

No-one thought the EDP was going to be a simple job.  Well, maybe
Electrix did...

normally yes but not in this case.
remember im going to make it if its not available.

and if u r saying that a device that could slave machines to a human drummer
is trivial and not commercially viable just cause no one MADE it yet, ur
certain things r just common sense no brainers.
if everyone thought that way, there'd never have been things like the EDP in
the 1st place.

My guess is that they considered the market share they'd gain versus
the amount of development, testing and implementation time (whenever I
see someone say that "It would be SO EASY for SOMEONE ELSE to make
something FOR ME", I know that it's almost certain that we're talking
about a non-trivial problem) and decided that it wasn't worth it.

thanks for the interest. im adrian by the way:-)

im on the lookout for a hardware version for live purposes just like u r. i
was guided to a product called 34One that does tap tempo (with ur foot)
while outputting the tapped tempo in midiclock.
it also accepts continuous tapping while updating the changing midiclock
so i was thinking that i could just electronically replace the switch that
ur foot taps with a pulse trigger  from a drum kit, say. i wrote to them in
germany and they told me that they actually have a sapce on the pc board to
insert that. GREAT!
they also said that it HAD to be ON the 1/4 note.
what drummer only plays 1/4 notes!!! arrrrgggghhhhh.

so what i may need to build (i AM quite handy with electronics), is an
interface with the LOGIC logic built in and then feed the unit the quarter
note output of the translated tempo from the drummer.
i wish, really wish they would do this. cause its VERY simple to do if u
know anything about electronics and THEY DO.
bummer. why do manufacturers always fall short. its like they dont connect
with real musicians.

but hey, maybe ill get rich.
