My dream looper - re: masterpieces
I originally sent this idea to loopy and got told no, but maybe now is the time to revive it?
A digital Loop Pedal that keeps all the loops, lets you edit and rearrange them, and stays out of the way when inspiration calls!
The closest I've seen to this is Digital Performers Polar http://youtu.be/t-2pI-M8yZI
Imagine you hit record, you play something live – a guitar, a synth – for me it’d be all mic or line recordings, no soft synths for me – and every iteration, every loop you play is recorded and layered, each on becomes a new track in the loop.
You can then chuck bad ones, pull out some to be in the next part of the song, drag and drop blocks of loops to make arrangement along a timeline in an unlimited number of layers (tracks)
So really similar to pro tools loops recording except you can keep every iteration rather than just picking one. And move them around in the arrangement to create whole songs from one looped record session.
And really similar to loopy, except each time the loop goes round it’s recording to a separate layer, so you can keep doing different things, and jamming over yourself, and picking and keeping or chucking or moving parts to be later in the song on a timeline.
If I knew anything about programming I’d make it myself…. For ios
