Hey fellow loopers: I've been talking to several people all over the world lately and it seems that there is a rush on to try and write live looping software for the laptop (or home computer). I've talked to people who are trying to write software for both Mac and PC................no one has unveiled as of yet, to my knowledge (with the exception of Ableton's LIVE but you still have to have a preset tempo in order to make it work so it is not as flexible as any of the major or minor looping hardware devices out there. I personally, wouldn't consider using anything live unless it had the salient features of the hardware loopers that I use. So I propose we raise the bar level for the people who are putting all this time into designing the next generation of looping machines (with all kudos and respect to all the incredible work that has already gone into the design of the current breed of looping hardware). So here is my proposal for a thread: If you respond, please number your answers for collating purposes. Thanks a lot. 1) WHAT ARE THE FEATURES THAT YOU THAT YOU CONSIDER INDISPENSABLE IN THE LOOPER THAT YOU USE.? 2) WHAT FEATURES MAKE THE LOOPER YOU USE STAND OUT FROM OTHER LOOPERS IN THE FIELD?
