HOW MANY LOOPS DO YOU USE SIMLUTANEOUSLY?
The loop linearity thread made me think:
I've noticed that despite the ability to have
8 stereo tracks in the Looperlative (or to run
multiple instances of Mobius, Augusts Loop, or a
Max/MSP or Ableton's Live looper)
the most loops I ever use in a song are 5 and
usually I only use 2 or 3 maximum.
I just find that timbral masking occurs if one is constantly trying
to add layers to one's compositions.
How may loops do we use, I wonder.
What are the aesthetic pros and cons of multiple layers of loops?
As I pointed out, Mir O brilliantly uses tons of layers of loops but
his piece at Y2K6 took up the better part of his 30 minute set.
It was really beautiful but this is a fairly unusual instance from my
hearing hundreds of loopers from different countries.
How many loops do us use simultaneously?
