Help with Loopy Screen with USB Audio Input Device. Recordings Skip, Loopy Crashes
For months I've enjoyed using Loopy to create vocal loops by singing right into my iPhone. Last month I bought a Focusrite 18i8 usb audio input device to allow me to take the next step of running guitar, microphone, and keyboard inputs directly into my iPhone via usb cable for use with Loopy.
I have 2 technical questions I'm hoping someone can help with.
My current setup: Guitar & microphone into Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 into usb cable into CCK into iPhone 4s (iOS7).
How do I use the Loopy control that appears in the Panel when I plug the CCK from the 18i8 into my iPhone? I've attached a picture. By selecting different Loopy options on this control I realize I'm somehow affecting how the usb sound is input into the iPhone, but how exactly? I watched the in-app tutorials as well as searched online, but no luck so far in understanding how to use this Loopy control.
I have issues after I start Loopy when I plug the 18i8 in and record a few Loopy tracks. Loopy doesn't always respond to my tapping the phone screen to start or stop tracks. Recorded guitar (but not vocal) tracks skip on playback. On occasion Loopy shuts down, or the phone reboots. Is this an issue with my iPhone (perhaps memory issues?), my 18i8 (question 1 above), or my karma?) Has anyone else had similar issues? Should I uninstall/reinstall Loopy and see what that does?
I know I've got more great music to record with Loopy. I'm just hoping someone can help me over my current technical hurdles!
Thanks in advance,
