BECOME YOUR OWN BAND WITH USING A LOOPSTATION TO RECORD LOOPS
YOU GOT THE INSTRUMENTS
You got the software. You got ideas. And there is only one really clean and simple way to bend reality towards your ideas: It’s called looping. It’s fast, it’s clean. It is the most fun you will ever have making music. You can basically
PLUG IN ANYTHING
and record short or longer phrases, that you then: put on loop. Which allows you to sound like a band. But without a band.
If you are
REALLY SERIOUS ABOUT LOOPING
there are only three options: If you are Ed Sheeran like serious, then your only option is a custom made board, most of them have an android tablet or a full-blown pc built-in. Pricing accordingly. Ed Sheeran, the
MASTER LOOP ED
himself has a custom looper, called ‘Cheewie’, which is based originally based on this looper: the Boss RC 300. The big advantage of this one: It’s all for your feet. Meaning, you can use your hands to play and sing. The big bummer: Only three loops. In Short, this is the best live looper on the market. The
BEST PRODUCTION LOOPER
is one with 5 separate loops: Boss RC 505. Big Bummer: You either have to use your hands all the time, or you gotta buy, use, and especially bring a pedalboard, working as a midi controller for the RC 505 with you. Which isn’t the best choice for traveling, like ever.
MY CHOICE: THE BOSS RC 300
cause I can use it live, it’s the complete package, it’s robust, you cannot lose connection when trying to connect your midi controller, you only got one device for looping. What’s your choice?
