Re: Tabletop loopers

Normally, if there is a hardware solution and the person said, "I  
don't want to use a laptop." I wouldn't touch it but I did translate  
the "I'm not a computer guy" phrase with the "Max MSP" bit to mean  
he's not up for trying to build the thing in Max himself.

I'll give a plus one to the Electroharmonix loopers though if you  
want a tabletop solution.  Hell, I'll even go as far as to suggest a  
used Electrix Repeater if you can find one at a decent price on  
Ebay.  Either is going to be less expensive than a laptop, MaxMSP and  
a JazzMutant Lemur.

Truthfully though, when I'm using Mobius it's interface is on a  
separate monitor and to me it's indistinguishable from a piece of  
rack gear being controlled by my Behringer FCB1010.  The FCB1010 is  
dedicated to Mobius as is the monitor.  I've got a second FCB1010  
that only controls Amplitube X-GEAR and KORE 2/Remote25 SL to mess  
with synths.  The only thing that pushed me away from gear (you've  
seen my old rig) is that I discovered "virtual" patching and I can't  
go back to a world without it.
