Re: Software looping


I want to jump in because I have been using a Boss RC 505, which I love, but also considering using a software looper in Live for all the obvious reasons. What is the most stable, powerful software for looping which can be embeded in Live. I have tested Mobius it seems very powerful and hopefully reliable... My main concern is how difficult it may be to harness all that power. I am experienced at working with high tech and software but not in the mood for headaches related to poor documentation and old features. The Live Looper for example, looks simple enough turns out to be quite fidgety and obscure...

Hello Per! Thanks for the reply. Greetings from Wisconsin.
So I believe that would take care of series looping (having an a,b or c part) as long as I can switch between parts with a pedal.
yes the latency I'm having is only with monitor set to "in" the only reason I'm doing that is because YouTube tutorials are telling me I have to do that to use plug in effects live on a channel. Other wise with monitoring off I don't have latency.
Is there a way to have start and stop clip mapped to one button. Right now push button starts recording then second push stops recording and plays loop(perfect!) would like one more press to stop or resume the loop playing (like a loop pedal)

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).
