Okay, well… I have way more people reading this blog than used to. And I also link this blog from my Facebook page. I’m hoping somebody who reads this may be able to suggest something.
I’m looking for either equipment or a program that allows the user to record loops, over which additional loops can be recorded, on multiple tracks that can be brought in and out with single-button touch per track on the fly.
So, for example, say I record eight separate tracks, all of which are on loop so that the same sixteen bars play over and over. The third time through, I want to cut out specifically track five but keep the others playing. I want to be able to press one button and remove just track five. The fourth time through, I want to be able to bring track five back in but remove tracks two and seven. I want to be able to simultanously press three buttons and have all of that happen.
Do ANY of you have any idea if there is equipment and/or software that can make this happen?
I know where to find equipment like the Digitech Jamman that allows something like 99 tracks to be looped, but I know it doesn’t have a 99-button interface to bring them in and out. Is there something else that could be hooked up to it that would do something like that?
AND, if you DON’T know — do you know anybody who WOULD know?
I’m kind of using this blog post as a bulletin board request for help — and I’m doing it primarily as an experiment. Getting so many more readers surprised me, and it made me feel remarkably connected; now, I’m curious to see just how connected.
