New to Loopy - Need some input on equipment (should this be in techniques?)
as the title states.. i'm new to loopy but have been looping at live-gigs for the last 5 years or so..
Here's some vids so you know what my current setup is like:
Current Hardware setup:
Loads of Instruments & Vocal Mic -> 8-Channel-mixer->Stereo Boss RC-50 -> PA
I just bought myself an ipad air2 - my old ipad1 couldn't hack audiobus - and am wondering what other gear i'll need.
In an ideal situation..
-1 Play an instrument and sing simultaneously but have the the options of recording: none/one/both
-2 Use ampltitude (or something similar) for guitar/vocal effects
-3 A decent analog-2-midi app for playing keyboards/cello whatever on the guitar
-4 leave the bass at home
-5 Do all (at the very least most) of the above option switching (to a pre-programmed degree) via foot-pedal.
-4 is really important because tbh i've no patience for playing around with settings and apps before a song
finally presents itself to the listener. Call me old-fashioned.. but i can't stand the same 16 bars gettting multi-layered untill the song actually gets around to being played.
So, i've got the Ipad, asides from Loopy, i'll be needing audiobus/aplitube or similar / a midi/bluetooth pedal / an analog-midi input device.
I'd be gratefull for any suggestions as to recommended hardware or links to videos.
