Playing loop track in series (one after the other) rather than in parallel (multi-track)

Just new to Loopy and find it really smart way to make loop for live performance.

I am a traditional music fiddle and button accordion player and want to use loopy the same way I use Jamman Stereo. I usually play sets of tunes. The looper play the backtrack (ex. 32 bars of piano accomp.) and each track is for a different tune. I press the pagedown switch that makes Jamman finish the actual loop and start the next one right after.
Using a simple Bluetooth pedal (AirTurn duo bt-106), Looks like all I can do is waiting at the end of a playing track loop to Mute and play next track. To do so, I use the down (right pedal). The first track is an empty one so when I pagedown first time, it goes to the second track. After the last track, it goes back to first empty track. Is there a better way? I like the fact that I could go with my Ipad, Airturn pedal and Bose battery powered speaker playing on the street to try to make money to pay all these music toys.

Any advice? Thanks!

  • I tried the same with the help of midifire - application that has built in tiny programming language to morph midi messages. And I could not get it working reliably :(. The only reliable way i found to switch loops was a finger tap - mute one, un-mute another. And you know, it may be a better way as fingers are more precise than my heavy boots, trying to hit the right button on a squeezed space.

    Hello @Bichel ,

    Because you use the AirTurn, I don't think you have access to the special functions within Loopy.
    There's one that might interest you : "Mute and play the next muted track" or something like that.
    With the count-in Mute/play, I guess it will do what you"re asking for.

    But to be able to have access to it, you need a Midi controller.
    It seems that the Blueboard (the one with 4 buttons) is what you're looking for.
