Anybody played around with the looper yet?

If so, how well does working with multiple loopers on the sends work?

I´ve been thinking about getting a portable sample box, something that runs on batteries and has it's own mic input for awhile now... Something even more portable than a laptop that I can pop in a bag and just head out, sit down somewhere and record whatever... Anybody do this with something like th...

Guru is cool, although once Live 8 hits it'll be mostly redundant for me. I mostly like Guru for it's grooves and stuff.

It's interface is a bit fiddly for my tastes.

Drum Racks + Grooves + Session view is probably superior for drum programming.

No matter where you control it from, wiring it up so that you can always keep an audio track ready in Live to grab whatever is coming out of the MachineDrum is a must for impromptu sample mangling etc...

Simplest method:

Create three MIDI tracks - one for the notes, two for the relevant synths. Drop the synths on channels 2 and 3

Assing "MIDI FROM" on channels two and three to Channel 1

Play notes

The synths should play in unison.

I think for live use, it would be prudent to be able to disable the transport control entirely.

^^That's one way of doing it but it's often more simple to use groove templates. If you want a slight 8th note triplet swing, instead of spending a lot of time micro-shuffling MIDI notes around just find a beat that has a lot of the kind of groove you want, and you can mix in groove to taste. And if...

*Disclaimer* This is how it works in Reason 4, so milage may vary What is being extracted is simply the timing and velocity information. So the groove file will extract how late/early the notes are hitting, and with what velocity. When you then apply the groove information on another MIDI or audio c...

Yeah but the same applies to warping, but we can still drag a MP3 or a WAV into Live, wait a few seconds while it's auto-warped, while the set keeps rolling. It depends on how long it takes to analyze, and whether the Melodyne algorithm needs the whole CPU to do it(i.e, does it have to be set up so ...
