only the Gibson Echoplex EDP with loop IV software will do what you wish to accomplish.they are between $800 and $1000the brand new LOOPERLATIVE (released at the next NAMM show in Anaheim in January) may do that.Let me check with the owner on that for you.best of luck!yours, Rick----- Original Message -----From: Tony HughesSent: Thursday, December 08, 2005 8:00 PMSubject: performance looping ?I am a performance artist and have recently become interested in using loops as ambient backgrounds for my performances. I have looked at the hardware (mainly boss rc-20xl and digitech jamman = based on price range, under 500$ 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 have.
Thanks for any help.
