I’ve taken advice to buy a MIDI foot controller for my Undo/Redo, which is all working theoretically, except that there seems to be a bug where the Aeros Looper undoes all overdubs except for the base track in response to one single undo command.
This bug(?) is happening randomly and I don’t know why - i.e. - sometimes a single undo command will only undo the very last overdub, as would be expected.
In this demonstration, when using an external foot controller with the Aeros Looper, one single Undo command undoes two overdubs, instead of just one.
Brennan I will try values 11/12/21/22, but what you said is not what is happening in my video demo.
In my video demo (using values 1 and 2) it is undoing/redoing the top TWO layers. Sometimes the Aeros Looper is doing this, and other times it acts as you described. Seems totally random. This is the bug you have left unanswered!
EDIT: I tried using values 12 and 22 and the results were exactly the same. Multiple layers are being undone/redone with a single command. Please check the video again, still the same, still the bug!!
Hi Brennan and all, please review this bug report again. As you can see from my video and description, the Aeros is often undoing the top TWO layers after a single command. On rarer occasions it will act as prescribed.
But after watching your video again, it doesn’t seem that you ever start more than one overdub layer. The Aeros does not start new overdub layers at every loop seam, it will continue writing to the same layer over and over again until that layer is committed.
There is one additional quirk in the Aeros that overdubs that are stopped and started again within a loop revolution are treated as the same overdub layer.
In essence, the undo is working as expected, it’s just that likely you are recording everything to one overdub layer
To test it, please, try waiting for the loop to pass the main loop seam before starting the next overdub layer to see if this fixes the issue on your end
We will try a little more to see if we are mistaken,
Thanks for replying Brennan, and I suspected this is what was happening.
In my video, Layer 1 is beatboxing.
Layer 2 is bass and rhythm guitar.
Layer 3 is lead guitar.
The Undo command is removing Layers 2 and 3 (where I would only want it to remove Layer 3) as I quickly would progress from the recording loops and undoing Layer 3 to transition immediately into the first verse.
I wouldn’t describe this as a quirk, I would describe it as a bug. Reason being is that now imagine you are performing in front of an audience a full set. With this “quirk” everything takes longer to do. There is more potential for energy drop off in the performance and the audience getting bored as a result. I am glad you are looking into it.
Combined with my two feature requests that you have also responded to, and in their absence, for me the Aeros - which for all other reasons I love and so much admire and appreciate the incredible engineering and programming that has gone into it - becomes unusable in live situations.
