Re: Question about looping software
OK, let me preface my answers with an acknowledgment of my complete
ignorance of terms and technique. The following is clearly from a
layman's perspective; I'm trying to communicate concepts and probably
not using the right terms...

With the RC50 I could switch between loops or do simultaneous loops.
Actually, Boss' use of the term 'phrase' is probably more accurate
here. I want to be able to do this; lay down one or more loops to
establish a repeating phrase that I can use as the base of a song
section. From there, I want to do the same with additional phrases. I
want the ability to either play multiple phrases simultaneously and/or
to switch between phrases. That is the strength of the RC50.

Actually, I would think that that would be what you would use the RC50
best for. I don't think it was ever really designed to replace
'loopers'. I think that it uses looping technology to provide the
ability to manage phrases. Sort of 'macro loop management'. When I was
playing with the RC50 I was able to dynamically manage the flow of music
very well. What I couldn't do was to create unique sound (OK, actually
I did, but not in the same way that traditional loopers seem to do.)
So to answer your question, I want to use looping software to do both
sound creation and phrase management. I think... ;D
