I use a vg-88 + sundry into my Repeater. I use the control room out from my mixer (auxes used for other) to feed the Repeater's inputs and patch the spdif output from the Repeater back into the mixer on two input channel faders. Incidentally, I haven't EVER noticed that annoying 'drive noise' glitch that I used to when recording to CC. Yay! I'm able to loop live using the CC card for the first time ever without noise, I'm abusing the priviledge, ha! Haven't pushed the operations that hard yet (i.e. no rapid reverse toggles, instant tempo changes, etc.), but it works. I have an alesis airfx in the Repeater's fx loop. I patch EVERYTHING into a digital mixer (midi controlled) with adat I/O to Layla interface. I like this because I detach two adat cables and my rig is mobile. Plugin two adat cables and I've got 8 digital ins to Cubase, and 8 digital channel/busses back (as well as 8x8 analog un/balanced on the Layla for additional patching). vg-88 goes into mixer and also some combination of mixer aux outputs (4, 2 stereo to Vortex and Lexicon MPX1) for fx'ing. I change patches on the mixer and control the Repeater with an FCB1010 footcontroller. vg-88 is fed by mag pickup output (which is also routed to GT-6) and Gk-2. Funnily enough, I almost never use overdriven/crunch patches. I just turn everything on and go to town, honestly, it's very easy to never do the same thing twice. *shrug* ;-) With the mixer I can try a number of things out, which is where I've played around the most recently. I have one 'bread and butter' Repeater bank on the 1010 footcontroller, and then some oddball Repeater ones, and also presets to change mixer settings. I usually just grab tones with different frequency squatting space and surf ... One thing I do a lot is use two Repeater tracks for 'fixed' material and two tracks for transitory material. And the switch at some point and make the transitory material the 'fixed' material via feeback control (from 1010) and vice versa. I highly recommend a mixer and some kind of aux routing to incorporate the Repeater. You don't want to have your vg-8 going direct thru the Repeater, but in a parallel path thru a mixer, et. al. Have fun! -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Wednesday, May 26, 2004 8:04 AM To: Loopers-Delight@loopers-delight.com Subject: using vg8 with a repeater Does anyone use a vg8 with the Repeater? I'd be interested in any comments on this experience: how you've got your rig set up, how you use them together live, etc. Thanks!
