Hi. Herewith my first impression trying to use LP3 on my ModDuoX with Mod Footswitch.
My main purpose is to use it in sync with the rest of my studio equipped with an E-RM Multiclock as master clock distributing clock signal to all my outboard gear (bunch of arpegiator/sequencer equipped synth and rhythm boxes) acting as slave.
So TP3 is set to sync to Midi as suggested on this forum as it is more reliable than host sync with current Mod Device firmware. When I record (set to play after recording) it relably syncs to current set tempo on my master clock and it stays in tight permanent sync and does not drift after some time (like it does if synched to host tempo). So far so good.
Then it starts to become temperamental. Following tests are done with clock set on a specific BPM,
and leave it running. I used what they call the Full looper controls in the documentation.
When I try to record a second part on same track or to record on track 2 it seems that track and part buttons have a life of their own. Sometimes it works but most of the time it does not record on the expected part/track. Looks like buttons do not always trigger and sometime with a unusable lag.
Then, if I store current loop say in slot 1, erase all (erase button) and recall slot 1, the stored loop does indeed play again but not at same tempo and hence no way to get it in sync with current beat on my rhythm box and arpegiators.
Pressing Half Speed or Reverse works but never on the expected Track/part
All in all I’m still scratching my head on how to use LP3 reliably in that setup and not sure whether working properly or buggy
Any help would be appreciated.
Here a screen shot of the board.
