I'm just getting started with the concept of live looping, so I'm looking for all the help I can get.
First, I'm a drumset player. I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about doing this, especially when it comes to gear. I have a Boss SP-505 on order, which may or may not do the trick. From looking around at the setups of different people on the LD profiles page, it looks like a lot of folks are using the Echoplex. Any thoughts?
In any case, my real quandary is about how to transmit sounds to the machine and then get it to a club's soundboard. I'm not sure whether I should mic every drum, send it through a mixer, and then send a feed to a sound guy, or what? The problem then, of course, is that I would have two mics on every drum -- mine and the clubs. No something I want to do. But, well....?
I'd appreciate any and all thoughts on the subjects -- I've been super psyched about getting into live looping for awhile now, and I want to do it right.
Thanks, and glad to be here.
