Ive been trying to use the aeros in a live situation. I have it set up to start in freeform with a beat showing on the display.
What I want to do is press record when Im ready to start a loop without having to look down at the beatbuddy
Now sometimes I might misjudge when the first beat has come around and press record on the third beat instead, for example, because the beatbuddy beats sometimes don’t accent when the first beat is and the beats just go around as though they are in a continuous loop and because Im not counting every beat
With my other looper a boomerang this wouldnt matter but with the beatbuddy/aeros combination if you don’t start the loop on the first beat it gives you a count in and you cant start recording until the beatbuddy comes around to the first beat
This means you have to check and look at the beatbuddy before pressing record
Is there any way around this? That is press record and go straight into recording without any counting irrespective of the beat number first second third fourth you start recording
Hope this makes sense to someone I know this might be sacrilege to some users but its just an occasional issue Ive had and I find its easy to loose the first beat especially when improvising as the first and third beats often sound the same with beatbuddybeats.
I guess with a live drummer the first beat will be accented making it clearer
This didn’t seem to be an issue with the boomerang it begins recording as soon as you press record no matter which beat you start on
Ive got the feeling this is not possible because of the way the beatbuddy and aeros sync
