Re: Usine Hollyhock for Live Looping?

I'll second the use of Bidule for such things-- I used it in conjunction with Mobius and a few effects both as a guitar looper and sound source during last year's loopfest. It's easy to get up and running with it, and you can get fairly elaborate if need be.

I don't have specific experience with Usine, I did look at it a number of years ago but decided on Bidule (   http://www.plogue.com/products/bidule  ) instead. Concept wise, they seem like very similar programs, an environment where you can channel your signal through various vst programs. I ended up with bidule because it seemed a bit easier for me to understand, but I do know that lots of people use usine. In bidule I've had some very elaborate setups routing various signals down through Mobius and building a great soundscape. I'm sure that you can do the same with Usine. You might try getting hold of Per, he has had much more extensive and indepth usage.

good luck, I found that going with that modular sort of environment opened up a whole different world of looping for me.
