Loopy (HD) / AUM Best Practices?
I recently realized that Loopy (HD) together with AUM is the right approach for an agile jamming/song sketching setup for me. It lets me work up some bits and record precisely-timed loops that I can drop into BeatHawk or the like and also record non-looped bits. I find it more convenient than working in a DAW.
Oftentimes, I am using Bias AMP or ToneStack as an input to bring in my guitar.
Here is my question. What is the best way to set up AUM and Loopy so that I can send from an AUM bus to Loopy to use as an input.
I have something that works, but I have a feeling that there is a more elegant way to do it. I am using AB3, but I have seen a couple of people mention that you don't need AB3 -- that AUM can send to Loopy. But I haven't figured out how to make it work without using AB3. I have seen a reference somewhere to being able to choose AUM as the audio input source in Loopy (I have tried non-HD and HD) but have not been able to figure out how to do that.
What I currently am doing is:
- Add AUM as an audio source with Loopy HD connected as the destination
- Add Loopy HD as an audio source with AUM as the destination
- I set up Mix Bus A with the destination "1: Loopy HD" from the IAA/AudioBus Output destination popup
- I create sends to Mix Bus A for any channels that I want to record in Loopy.
That works, but it is a lot more involved than what I have a few people mention. (It also gives me pause that I have an AUM to Loopy lane in AB3 and a Loopy to AUM lane. While I haven't experienced feedback, it seems like a possibility)
