Re: Software looping

Hi Josh,

What do you mean by "series looping"? Stacking a series of loops for
alternate triggering over a channel? If so, that's how Live works with
recorded audio clips. Triggering a new loop on a channel silences the
playing loop, on the same track/channel.

I'm afraid you're wrong there. Latency comes from the time it takes to
digitise the audio and process it in the software. The trick with
software based loopers is to NOT monitor your input audio through the
software! Most audio interfaces have this "direct monitoring" or
"direct ASIO" function that simply splits the signal in two; one part
goes into the software to get processed and one part goes directly to
the amp/PA/speakers. With looping you should never have any latency
because when audio gets recorded into a loop the software has plenty
of time to compensate for latency until it is time to play back that
audio (on next loop return).
