loop recording?

Post by strat » Mon Dec 17, 2001 8:59 pm

Hello

I've downloaded the demo and would like to know if it possible to use Live as a loop-sampler like the Echoplex, Jamman or the more recently Electrix Repeater. As I can't seem to start/stop recording with my sustain pedal because I need both hands for playing my instrument.

Live should work really well as a live looper/sampler -- I've been using it that way myself. You would probably get a lot of use out of some midi bass pedals (like for those hammond simulators). You could use these to turn loops on and off and record loops with your feet while you play.

How can I record with my feet? I tried using the 'midi-learn' function but it didn't recognized my sustain pedal.

recording with your feet

Well, you'd have to use a set of midi bass pedals -- like a short keyboard that you put on the floor and play with your feet (you know, like a moog taurus). Anyway, use the keys to trigger recording and clip looping while your hands are occupied. You'd send midi note messages to Live.

Does that help?
