Thanks for the reply! All things considered, this is an incredibly minor issue, nothing to gripe about. I figured I’d make the footswitch suggestion since the longpress functionality was unused and I figured it could be treated as an atomic feature request (instead of the “wouldn’t it be cool if the Aeros could do my taxes”-type requests with no concept of scope) and see if it was something you guys might consider. If you have other plans, that’s cool too.
Seems like one way to remedy this, and something I was going to ask about, is to allow the Songs List to be “loopable” (no pun intended) with the scroll (volume) wheel, meaning if you scroll “up” from the top of the list, it goes from the first song to the last song, and then backwards all the way, or if you scroll down from the top to the end of the list and keep scrolling down, it goes back to the start. That way, if you know your song is closer to the end of the list than the beginning, you could scroll “up” from the top of the list and get to the bottom much faster than scrolling “down” through the entire list.
loopable song list is a super logical onstage must
Would not want to “overshoot” when scrolling to the top of bottom.
Perhaps the wraparound only works when you are already at the top or bottom. That is, if you are scrolling up (or down) and get to the top (end), you’d have to stop for a moment and then scroll up to wrap.
Or perhaps there’s another simple way to get to the bottom of the list via foot control. IMHO, the Aeros suffers from not having some sort of foot accessible choice of common actions (a page or menu) that you can bring up for the myriad of edge case features that everyone wants (for which SS seems to think Midi is a panacea). They keep on running into all sort of limits of the device UI (or FUI) that make it hard to add features to this premium priced product.
Ya know how in the mixer the volume will get “sticky” around unity when using the wheel? That same function could be implemented on the loopable song list when scrolling from first to last song or vise versa.
That’s would be great.
But if I could arrange the songs in a specific order, my life would be much easier.
Can you guys do that?
For the gigging musicians, the ability to arrange songs in order isn’t a "minor issue."Trust me on this.
IT IS A MUST-HAVE OPTION!
Just curious. For the gigging musicians using a looper, how many are using pre-recorded tracks/parts out there as opposed to creating full songs live?
For the last three years, I am using only prerecorded tracks.
I don’t do live looping anymore.
@Gibson is that pre-recorded “section’s” of songs to construct as you go or complete backing tracks to just play/sing to?
No backing tracks.
I record sections of the song: intro, verse, chorus, solo, etc.
Usually, it’s 4-6 Parts song , each part has 3-5 tracks on it, bass guitar, strings, rhythm guitar , what have you.
I’ve only done open mics so far. I’m building a repitoire. Anyway, I’ve never done backing tracks. I’ve started from scratch creating full songs as succinctly as possible. While that’s possibly interesting to the audience now and then, I feel a whole night of that would become boring. Here’s the type of stuff I do.
Sounds good buddy.For the open mic.But for the real gigging 3-5 tmes a week it’s too complicated. Better to keep it simple.
This video was pre-Aeros using Pigtronics Infinity and TC Flashback X4 (looper mode)

2 posts were split to a new topic: Create beats using sheet music
There are no current folders on Aeros, but there is already a search bar in the songs list, is this what you are referring to?
That being said let’s try to stay on OPs topic!
Search bar in the songs list is not good enough for live perfomance.
If you have 50 songs, thats problem.
