I joined this forum in 2013 and decided looping was too much work. I gave up until 2017 and I think I'm figuring it out - check out this live looping performance of Uptown Funk I did last week. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pD8X8JY7sbI
Nicely done! You got the crowd joining in = success :-)
Would you care to share your audio routing and hardware setup? Foot pedal for MIDI?
Great job man! Keep at it, it will only get better.
