Re: blech (pedal choices

Hey G,

>Do I get a decoder ring?

Only if you go the software route! :)

>>I can tap in a loop that is pretty accurate for most uses.
>Oh.  Are you saying it has tap tempo?

 that depends on what you call tap tempo. The 2880 works like this: Tap to 
start recording and tap to stop recording and begin playback. This is in 
quantize mode unsynced. This is the way i use it. this is what I call tap 
tempo. It works just like the DL 4 in many ways in this mode. If you need 
the manual I have a pdf.

As a slave in quantize it's the same thing only you press the drum machine 
start after arming the 2880 to start recording then the 2880 button to set 
the lenght of the loop and begin playback. I find it virtually impossible 
flub a loops timing while quantized in slave mode.

I see what you mean but this is not my thing. I never play the same thing 
twice and can't repeat anything I have ever done exactly. I have basic 
themes or variations that i come back to.

Maybe what you need is the software route. Hopefully some of the lappys 
chime in here. The 2880 will only save one loop on each card. It can have 
to 4 tracks and a mixdown, etc but this is erased when you press new loop. 
Some of the "phrase sampler" type loopers can save multiple loops (Digi 
Jamman) but are not midi.

Best of luck on all you do,
