Management of loops behavior
First of all, sorry for my bad english which is not my first language and also, if the following questions have already been discussed in this forum and i didn't find it…
I own a Jamman and i'd like to switch to Loopy for my musical activities.
I have no particular problem to control Loopy with midi bindings, whether it is with a hardware controller (FCB1010->irig midi) either with an ipad midi control app (S1MidiTrigger) via a midi router app (midiflow) : loopy does more or less what I want…
Except for the following :
I use the Jamman with prerecorded loops which can be of various lengthes, having different tempos and various time signatures. I can chain several of them by selecting with a footswitch. The good thing is that when i select a new loop, it starts only when the current one reaches its end, which is really convenient : no need to be right in time for a perfect chaining of the loops…
To be clear in my explanation, this is what the Jamman manual says :
To switch to Loop 2, press the UP footswitch at least two seconds before the end of Loop 1. Once Loop 2 is selected, the display will show a flashing 2, indicating Loop 2 is cued up to play once Loop 1 finishes
I also have been unable to find out how to manage, in Loopy, these 2 other Jamman features :
Extracts of the Jamman manual :
Loop Phrases can be stopped in two ways: Immediately stop when the STOP/TEMPO footswitch is pressed or finish playing through to the end of the phrase and stop.
Loop / Single Phrases
Any phrase recorded into the JamMan can be played in two ways: either as a continuous Loop, or as a Single “one-shot” sample. Single phrases are designed to play through only once and stop. All phrases are recorded as loops first but they can be changed to a Single if desired and can always be changed back to Loops later without harming the phrase.
I really love Loopy. If i could use Loopy same way i use the Jamman, i mean particularly with these 3 abilities : starting a new recorded loop right after the end of the current one (by selecting it anytime before it has to start), stopping a loop until the end is reached and playing a loop once (no loop) that would be awesome and let me abandon the Jamman…
Maybe all of that can be done in Loopy… My reading of the help was not enough attentive : I am sorry about it.
Thanx in advance for any responses, help, tricks or ideas…
