What kind of Loopers?

Post by rubysmooch » Sun Jan 30, 2011 10:21 pm

Specifically for live performances:

Looking for a looper that I can create several loops w/and be able to control each loop individually w/effects etc. Want something that can loop for a good amount of time at least 10 minutes for an individual loop. I also want it to be compatible w/keyboards/samplers.

P.S. I have a KP3 I'd be willing to trade straight up for if anyone is interested.

check out the electrix repeater and the boss RC-50. don't think you're going to find a looper with individual fx send/return for each of its tracks though...

The only thing I can think of that can do all that is the looper in Ableton Live.

keyboard sampler.
This looks like a psychotropic reaction. No wonder it's so popular...

The Looperlative can do a ~12.5 minute stereo loop, and has 2 stereo sends and returns.

With its 128MB memory, it will do up to 8 stereo loops at ~90 seconds each.

I don’t fully know the capabilities of the unit, but an Elektron Octatrack might be an option to look at.

A laptop with audio I/O seems to be your best bet here.


cheers,
Ian
