Hi folks !
I already gave some feedbacks about the LP3 plugin but after a few months working on it, I notice some other stuffs. Here’s a list of all of the observations that I can make. Sorry for repeating some things, I just told myself a complete recap would be more usefull for you guys.
1 - The most important commands that, in my opinion, are missing for live looping, are 3 separate « start/stop » buttons (for track 1, track 2 and both tracks at the same time)
2 - Another things that can make a big difference would be a mode that allows the audio signal to trigger the loop recording (like the ALO looper)
3 - An issue I encountered using two LP3 instances connected to each others. (the first beeing used in self-sync mode with the looper number set to 1. It sends midi to the second instance, in midi sync mode with the looper number set to 2.
The looper 2 seems perfectly synced to the tempo of the looper 1, but :
-When I stop and restart the looper 1, the phrase is played from its beggining (wich is good).
-When I do the same with the looper 2, the phrase seems to keep turning like it’s just muted. It stays synced with the first beat of the looper 1 when it was playing for the first time.
In other words, the bpm stays the same for both loopers but it seems to stop for the first one and keep turning for the other. So it can’t stay synced.
I suppose the solution would be to stop the midi bpm information sending by the first LP3 to the second one when its phrase (track1 of the self-synced looper) is not playing.
4 - When I use the start/stop command to relaunch a phrase, the very beggining of it seems like cut. Because of this sort of “fade in” effect, we don’t ear the first beat of the phrase before it reappears at its second cycle.
I think I’ve said everything and I hope my writing is understandable. I’m french and I don’t often express myself in english. Of course, I’m not certain, that I use this plugin correctly at 100%, so I guess I can be responsible of some of the issues I met.
My goal is to make an all in one live looping pedalboard for guitar, keyboard and voice. Even if I haven’t reach this yet, I’m getting more an more close and I have to say I really enjoy working on it with the Dwarf and the tonnes of things I learn thanks to the forum. So thanks a lot to the Mod team and to the users that make their contribution.
