Ok these are two very different pieces of equipment - but here is the dilemma. I want to introduce some looping into my live performances, I can either:
A. Using a flame echometer, create a midi loop, and output both midi and CV to a chain of synths which I can then control using the filters etc. The advantage here is I can create a multilayered beast of a synth with 4 or 5 keyboards chained together, and bring the loop in and out with the individual volumes and filters on each instrument.
B. Use the looperlative to record an audio loop, and channel the audio loop through the external input of say, My ARP Axxe or Yamaha CS20M (or other filtering bits, like a moogerfooger, mixer, eq, etc.) The advantage of 8 hi quality audio loops allows for a lot more layering possibilities, and not tying up all my synths with the same loop.
I am not introducing a computer into this situation. I am not ready to give up actually playing music and program all of the time
