Newbie to the aeros/BB combo, but not new to looping…
if using these 2 devices for a performance setting, how do i get back to Part 1 after recording part 2 (I only want to play part 2 once to record it)… AND how do i get BB to also go back to Part 1?
If i have a verse that’s basically 4 times through a chord progression, is it better to just record the progression 1x and have it loop, or better to record the whole verse?
Is there a limit on how long (time or measures) a part can be? a lot of the on the fly stuff i do is basically recording 1x through the whole form… I’ve had the loop studio cut it short and start playing the loop before it was done in a pretty short form (one time through a full verse of ‘friend of the devil’ which is only 12 bars) - wasnt’ anywhere near the 2.5 minutes i’ve seen mentioned… sometimes hard to know which info on here is still current and what’s been resolved.
I have a decent live set up for playing songs using RC300, but wanted to try SS gear for (hopefully) noticably better recording/audio quality and the better/more sounds/beats and song sections of the BB.
It’s only been a day or so (but several hours trying to get up the learning curve) - I am getting those benefits (although for my purposes, it is -so far- not that different through PA (QSC)… although headphones do sound great!)… but i’m finding some real hurdles for using it in a live setting.
2x2 mode is fairly easy to use this way, but has one less part than my current rig, which is a problem
6x6 is very challenging so far in terms of performance -
I do a lot of songs that really need 3 (or more parts)…since watching me build the loop gets boring, I typically have a drum/bass done at home for song parts 2 and 3 and do part 1 ‘on the fly’
unfortunately, I am not perfect (yet) and the limitation with Undo/delete is a big issue… Do i need to buy the MM to have delete function? will the MM enable a quicker way to get BB and Aeros to jump to different song parts together?
I could not find any demos that show 6x6 performance with multiple song parts and going between parts in different orders (there are a few that show 6 tracks on 1 part, but that’s not a ‘real world’ live scenario for me)…
I don’t always want to be locked into a certain arrangement… at a certain point, if it gets too much like playing to tracks, I might as well just do that from the ipad or whatever.
I think the goal of 6x6 is more for home/demo use, but 2x2 is too limiting for live use for me… there is much to love in this combo, and investing in the MM isn’t out of the question, but then I’m back to similar size of current rig and even more $
Thanks in advance for any guidance!
