Re: Please, recommend me a midi/foot controller for Looperlative LP-1

Interesting options...

The gordius is likely a fine option, I just don't know enough about it to 
comment.  However, I'll tell how I would do this.

First option would be a midi solution event processor: 
You could program this thing to send a midi note on when it receives a 
certain note off.  Kinda of pricey and complicated to program, but it 

..but doesn't seem to offer to send a string of commands based on
receiving a note-On.

It looks like it *may* just about handle that Expert Mode emulation
using something they're calling variables.

Second option (my current favourite) is to use a raspberry pi with the 
Satellite CCRMA disk image loaded.  This comes with pure data installed 
and you can use a midi-to-usb cable to insert the raspberry pi between 
your FCB and your LP1 to introduce all sorts of scripting options:  Note 
off to note on, note sequences, different scripts based on how long you 
hold a note down...  if you're handy with pure data, it's a fairly cheap 
option and it works really well.

sounds brilliant...but what about latency?
(because it's going to add to the 4-5mS latency on the fcb1010...quite 
likely it'll be noticeable)
