performance looping ?
I am a performance artist and have recently become interested in using
loops as ambient backgrounds for my performances. I have looked
at the hardware (mainly boss rc-20xl and digitech jamman = based on
price range, under 500$ and performance capability). I bought the
jamman and have been playing with it obsessively. There is one
important thing that I want to do that I seem to be unable to complete.
I want to be able to build a loop with multiple samples and then
unbuild it back to the original sample. I can layer samples into
the loop, but cannot undo past the one undo that you are given. I
can do this in a studio setting by creating loop one, copying it onto
loop two and then adding a sample overdub and copying to loop three
etc...but I would like to be able to do this in realtime - in the
studio setting I have to stop the loop playing in order to save and
resave to another loop. Are there better ways to do what I am
talking about, or do I need to figure out how to work with what I
Thanks for any help.
