Re: Drum machine for loops
Thanks for the response on the Oberheim echoplex--it sounds like a better
unit for what I'm trying to do. I'll have to check it out. Someone posted
that it is out of production--does that mean backordered? Because I think
they still make them . . .
As far as the drum machine thang--here is my setup. The Jamman is syncing
with the drum machine thru MIDI clock. To compensate for the lack of
percussion during the recording of the initial loop, I am using Cakewalk to
play the drum pattern on a Sound Canvas and send various patch changes
for Guitar, Jamman commands). I don't want to have all the percussion come
from the sequencer, for reasons which may be obvious but need not be gotten
into at this point. The SR-16 drum machine will not change patterns in
response to MIDI commands. Is there a drum machine which does? It would
one less thing I had to do while attempting to improvise.
