Re: What would loopers do without power?



The words "shutting the stable door" and "horses bolting" come to mind... Why wait for things to completely fuck up then complain, surely now is the time to be acting(?) (I know you may well be doing this too!).
 
I don't think that I could be without music for any time, it sustains everything else I do.
 
I'm certainly not getting rid of my saxophones or flute!

i would leave music for some time and enroll in some kind of resistence to destroy all those in the establishment/government who drove us into this catatrophic situation... i've learnt that from computer games ;-)  ... then afterwards we all could waste energy as we do!.

So, let's say hypothetically a major catastrophe occurred in the next 2-3 decades, and power became non-existent (unlikely) or highly scarce. For example, suppose we all had to rely on solar panels and wind power, and powering an amp and looper was a complete luxury and out of the question.


What would you do?

 

Second question: Has anyone created a solar powered system?  Just to make it simple, what would it take, and how much would it cost to make a solar powered system right now that would power my Roland Microcube and RC-2?  I think it would be fun to create such a system.

 

Or, does anyone have one of those stationary bicycles that is also a generator? Can you pedal fast enough to power these two electronic items? Imagine packing your bike around to play a gig. :)
