I’m not sure how that would help me though.
I was mainly thinking in terms of laying down a loop on the fly next to another one already recorded (as well as the FIRST loop) – since most western rock, blues, folk, etc is based on even numbered measure lengths, it would be nice to have more time to hit the end loop recording button that we have now.
Of course, it looks like this is all moot since I got a response from SS telling me to forget it – they’re not going to consider this - but also sounded like the person didn’t understand what I was asking for. A simple programming change/addition.
Current logic is button pushed to end recording or overdub can be done anytime within a measure and will trigger end of recording at the end of that measure. While recording the length of the loop is being shown on the left so It’s obvious that number is available to the program.
I suggest a (switched) slight change to that logic that interprets the switch (end loop) press, looks at the measure count and if it’s an odd numbered measure terminate recording at the end of the next EVEN numbered measure.
As I said, at fast tempos this could be invaluable.
