Looperlative software version stability and Red-House fx
Most stable software version for the Looperlative
The other version worth trying is v1.37, which is reasonably
stable and has the somewhat confusingly named "mellotron mode".
(very lo-fi control of playback rate over an octave of semitones).
First sign of instability is a drop out at the beginning of a recording.
This can be avoided by setting up blank loops and then overdubbing
(easy with the LP1). That's a technique that Bill Walker uses a lot
The "Red House" instant stutter effect isn't doable by the LP1 midi-learn
system alone. You need to program a midi controller to
send a command on release of the switch.
Once the midi controller switch is programmed to send a PgCh
on press, and one on release you need to.
1) go to the programming menu in the lP1,
2) press *and Hold* the switch
3) program it to
StopNow > Rec/Dub > endSequence
4) release switch
5) program it to
PlayNow > endSequence
I'd advise v1.34d if you wanna do this, as I reckon that
smaller loops can add to any tendency to instability.
This effect was previously known as SUS Record on the EDP
and was quite popular a few years back, but seems
to have been out of favour for a while.
