So this is what I want to be able to do:
Have a small band - 2 or 3 musicians probably, and be able to create looping songs all together.
Now right now I can use Ableton Link with GTL (or Loopy HD or Ableton Live ) and each band member can make their own loops that stay in time on separate devices. But when it comes time to switch from verse to chorus... things become tricky!!
So I'm looking for a way to be able to get everyones verse and chorus sections to swap at the same time - (ideally with any band member being able to initiate the change)
Any ideas how to do this?
Here's my thoughts... to start off, I was imagining that I'd have several MIDI foot controllers (FCB1010, Line 6 Helix to begin with) connected to each other via MIDI IN/THRU and then off to the main device audio interface (Behringer XR18)
Maybe if I had GTL on an iPad connected to my Helix as well as GTL on another iPad on the XR18 I could set the same MIDI messages to control the Play Group function on both iPads.... would that work?? Maybe it would depend how many bars were in the longest loop in each group on each iPad?? If they were different then the two GTLs might get out of sync?
I would love it if a future version of GTL could do Multi Track Looping (combined with a multi input audio interface) - and be able to assign each loop to a certain audio input and output - (and record more than 1 loop simultaneously) - so that for example Loop 1 (in each group) could be assigned to the Guitar, Loop2 to the Vocals, Loop3 to Keys.
