Re: new echoplexer: wanna copy loop and then change it

Hi Matthias! I'm honored to have the guy who designed this thing helping me with tech support. Very cool! Your little invention is changing my world.


I tried what you suggested and I can't get it to work. It's all or nothing when I try to copy. Would you mind walking me through it like you just turned the echoplex on go through every button and press that needs to be done. I know its laborious but it would make a great addition to the instruction manual!

To recap, I want to play a simple percussion part in Loop 1, copy it to loops 2 and 3, and then make each loop unique from there.  

Thanks much!!!

Ok, I was using LoopCopy=Snd. I tried not playing until the other copies were made but it did'nt work for me. Is there something IU'm missing?
This may seem like a silly question, but how do you go back to loop 1 instead of the next loop?

try LoopCopy=Off, SwitchQuant=CYC and press Next right after the Loopend. Then, while all LEDs are brown (loop did not switch yet), you can step through the loops till back to 1 (or longNext) and then press Multiply to make the copy. All this has to happen before the next loop end, because then the switching happens. If thats too stressy for you, try SwitchQuant=Cnf (in the upgrade, we will have the combinations: CycleConfirm and LoopConfirm).

take it easy and loop as you can!

do you use LoopCopy=Snd or Next-Multiply (with SwitchQuant=Cnf/Cyc) ?

As I understand, you get the copy of loop 1 in loop 2 as you want,
but then in loop 3 you get the copy of loop 2 (with another layer of
sound) instead of loop 1. Is that it?
If so, there are two ways:
- go back to loop 1 before you create loop 3
- dont play while you create the copies of loop 1 in loop 2 and then
loop 3 and only add more sound (with overdub or multiply) after the
copies are made.
