looper pedal with ableton link?

Post by pepezabala » Mon Mar 20, 2017 10:11 am

Is there a looper footpedal for guitars (or anything else) that has ableton link incorporated? Any workaround possible?

A lot of iPad/iPhone looping apps have Link.

Otherwise you'd need to just use midi to sync a pedal to Live, which might be a little more robust in this case.

If you want to go wayyy out there, there is a Link hardware device which can synchronize modular synths using control voltage (if I recall correctly). After that, you'd still need to find a way to send a signal back out to a looping pedal which would either be laptop software, iPad/iPhone software, or a midi connection of a hardware pedal.

hm, maybe I need to talk with someone at boss or tc electronic. Would be so great to have an independent stompboxlooper that synchronizes via link to ableton.

That would be an awesome piece of gear. Until then you could just setup a second machine running live, or an instance of Traktor (link supported) and sample in sync that way)
