Re: Software looping

Apollo is very hard to beat.  And if you buy one now, you can get a Satellite with it!
I have an Axe FX SL+.  Brand new in July.  I might sell it.  I just don't have time to explore its glories.  The Eventide H9Max is enough to keep me busy for hours… and hours I don't really have right now and might not have for another half year or so. 

Just keeping this space shuttle studio (www.glasswing.com) flying is a full time job, and that's on top of a hard core production schedule.  

If anyone's interested PM me - richard@glasswing.com

My dream audio interface is the new UAD Apollo Twin Thunderbolt.

Works with an Apple laptop with Thunderbolt connection.

I remember Bill Walker said he is very pleased with his Twin, but I
can't remember if he has the USB or the Thunderbolt version. Anyway,
the good thing with them is that the audio interface does some
processing so that can be used to tweak a live sound with no latency
(guitar tone? Reverb?). The UAD plugins are also great in studio
recording and a few of them comes bundled with the Twin, but if you
want more you need to buy them separately. If I didn't already have an
excellent solution with my, somewhat bulky, AxeFxII I would be going
for the slick and portable Twin.
