Re: Mobius in a rack unit
Here's another possible solution, less trouble than my setup which is:
rackmount computer, small touch screen, but I prefer to use the mouse.
And this is cheaper than build it yourself....
I just got one of these for my wife, 20 inch touch screen or
wireless mouse and keyboard.... I'd be a little concerned how to travel
with it, but still I'm sure a bunch of creative people could come up with
a way.... do we know any creative people around here????

A couple of months ago I was pondering a turn key system like this
my floorboard... no doubt there were many concerns.
However since aquiring a really great rack effect unit, I need a
computer to drive the editing software for three of my units.
My thinking was, well I may as well get a light small laptop for
and fit it in a rack sliding draw.... then thought Ah! And when I'm
editing (ie when I'm playing) I could use it for looping.
Hence why I've veered in that direction.
Perhaps a dedicated looping unit would be better, but (for me) it's
money, takes up more space and adds complexity (including a laptop
running editors). Thinking about it there's nothing stopping me
the laptop and using it for everything. If it becomes too much of
headache and I run into problems, then I'll consider something
to what you describe.
