AL + VoiceLive Touch 2 Fiona Apple looping cover

Hi guys, I wanted to post a link to this looping cover I just finished of a Fiona Apple song from her new album: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuhQ7BjX8fg In the video I midi-synced up Ableton to my new VoiceLive Touch 2 in order to separate the looping and automate a bunch of switches. If you turn...

Re: The most epic looping video I've done

Thanks Jekblad! I'm a big proponent of puremagnetik packs. We sampled my pump organ for a sample pack short while ago - the same one I used in this video: https://vimeo.com/2762672

Re: The most epic looping video I've done

That is incredibly kind of you, TabSel, even if it's a little unnerving - I'm not sure I'm comfortable being put in that weight class! But I'm excited to hear that all the work I put into the Sledgehammer performance introduced me to listeners such as yourself!

Re: The most epic looping video I've done

Thanks for checking it out, ferkijel!
I would say that the prog musician's favorites seem to be:
Gruvis Malt's "Simon"
Ebu Gogo "Worlds"
Gruvis Malt "Maximum Unicorn"

All are available on iTunes or CDbaby!

Re: The most epic looping video I've done

Thank you for giving it a chance! Incidentally, most of my body of work is considerably prog-y. I'd invite you to check out my bands: Gruvis Malt - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q82qAl94Ex4 Ebu Gogo - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQEVtXJOERY Home (full concept album stream) - http://www.gavincast...

Re: The most epic looping video I've done

Hey guys, enough folks asked for details about the programming of this video that I opted to make the workfile available for download. You can find a link on the video page in the Description: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS5VTDEfPyQ

Re: The most epic looping video I've done

It was indeed a one man job - that's why it took 3 months (from arranging to rehearsing to shooting to editing). Thanks for checking it out!

Re: The most epic looping video I've done

Thanks! I should note that any vocal effects on that SM58 are provided by the hot new VoiceLive Play pedal from TC-Helicon.

The most epic looping video I've done

Hey guys, I just completed was by far the most complex looping performance and video edit I've attempted so far. Viewing patience will be rewarded, trust me. I hope you like it:

Re: Extensive live looping video

here's a new video from the same shoot, no looping in this one, just a gentle song from a 2007 release: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vrp4eGVSgIE

Re: Extensive live looping video

thanks! It's been a long process figuring out what works live and what doesn't - but at least I'm thinking about it, right?!

Re: Extensive live looping video

thanks for all the kind words, guys! @Jekblad - I don't think doing the kind of performance that I do in my videos is plausible for live shows. Each of them truly require their own sets, and the change-over is a crowd-killer. I make videos of them so I can delete all that dead air. I'm finding a nic...

Re: Extensive live looping video

thanks very much! Triggerfinger was used for some drum hits here and there, and the modulation of a few effects. The footpedal was used mainly for looper controlling.

Extensive live looping video

Just finished this live performance of a remix for one of my songs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2lE3L2AP44U This one features higher quality camera work than I've had access to in the past. As far as the production for this one, I made extensive use of dummy clips and automation in this one, so t...
