Awesome Loop Deck Setup
If you have been wanting to do loop record sessions and jams and been frustrated trying to set up and co-ordinate multiple loop AUs, you might be interested in this non-AU but very stable and convenient workflow:
- 12 tracks/loops (24 are actually possible) and does not eat up much CPU
- start and stop recording and set loop lengths without having to open and close AUs or switch between apps
- long recording times (I've had no problems with 12 3 minute loops. longer loops likely not a problem though I haven't tried)
- loops synced to host tempo OR let your first loop determine the session's tempo automagically
Here is a quick demo of the setup in action:
I'll follow up with a few more videos to walk people that need it through the set-up and use process.
