Feature Suggestion, Accellerometer/shake trigger action
Hi Michael ,
First Congrats and Thanks for the new version, especially the new Bluetooth feature, I've already started to hack my old Bluetooth Keyboard into a pedal which I couldn't easily do with a midi pedal as they are bulky and pricey.
Soon I'll have a portable wireless foot trigger that makes loopy hd better than any hardware looper I've ever used.
I have a suggestion . Before 1.3 was released I was experimenting with using midibridge and the ShakeMidi app (sends a programmed midi message on shake or movement) to trigger loopy recording with my foot ( I'm a guitar player). In short ,it worked but Shake Midi can't be backgrounded so I can't see whats going on in loopy while using it.So...
Would it be possible to add a feature in a future version such as:
1) if the device is shaken it can be mapped to a single Loopy action . (I'd use it to trigger the recording on and off)
2) That the sensitively of this can be set by the user.
using shake midi I was able to get loopy to start and stop recording by using my foot and tapping my iphone like a pedal.
The only problem as I mentioned is not being able to access/see loopy while doing this which makes it too clunky to be practical, if it were implemented directly it would be awesome. Loopy already has a shake to clear feature so if the option of how to use it were given with a sensitivity setting I think this could make for some awesome spontaneous looping and would replace even my portable RC-3 pedal.
Just a thought but either way thanks for making my phone worth it. Definitely the best app I've got.
