Re: Looping Drums

SwitchQuant comes to mind from the Echoplex Dig world

see if you can get Mobius to gently quantize the commands from the SS
the Repeater had similar feature but both would require an initial loop or tempo to work (duh)

have fun

Hello folks,

I'm trying to incorporate a Wavedrum into my looping and I'm having some issues getting what I want that I thought those of you who are left here might be able to answer.

First off, I'm using Mobius in Live with a 1st gen softstep to control it (via Presonus Firestudio Mobile).

My issues are that the drum loops I record all seem very lumpy and stilted most of the time and while I assume almost all of that is due to user error I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to loop a really tight drum loop.  I think there is a touch of latency in the SS to Live route so I know I need to learn to compensate my timing but it still strange when I feel I've got a decent beat going, I loop it and then it sounds 'off' or wrong' and the life is gone.

So, a random shot to see if there is any advice beyond practice (which I will do, but if there are ways to make the practice more useful ....)



Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.
