Looped audio to clip slot (without dragging/touching the computer)?
I am wondering if anyone has found a way to hands-free get your looped audio to a clip slot. I am playing guitar and bass w/ a heavy reliance on live looping.
My hands are in use 90% of the time playing my instruments & my laptop is not on the desk, so it's not easily accessible. I've managed to do almost everything I need with my midi footswitches, but not this.
My session has separate scenes for Verse, Chorus, etc.
1) I arm a track with Looper and record my "Verse".
2) Next I want to record the loops for my "Chorus".
3) Then I want to go back to the "Verse" that I've already recorded with Looper; and then go back to the "Chorus", and so on.
The problem is this: If I use 2 separate tracks for Verse and Chorus, stopping them when they come in/out sounds abrupt, since it cuts the audio on that track. Furthermore, I won't be sure if the loops will start in the right place when I unmute them.
I know I can bypass Looper and just record directly into clip slots, but it's not certain the loop will be the right length; and moreso, I can't stack / build up the loops; it can only be one "part" at a time.
If there was a way to get the Looped audio to a clip slot, it would be easy to swap between Verse & Chorus etc easily.
I'm open to any methods to get the same result - namely, easily swapping back/forth between loops you've recorded - if anyone has a good idea for this. Thanks in advance to anyone who cares to comment.
