Hey guys,

i am developing a sequencer-based live-looping-system where NS is integrated into, please let me know what do you think about this:
https://soundcloud.com/adin-is-not-my-name/drumnbass-marmelade-jam

i wrote,arranged and manipulated the whole song in realtime (thats what live-looping ought to be:-))

thank you very much for your attention!

Sounds great. Love to see a video of your live looping on YouTube. I'd like to try it, but not quite sure how one goes about it. Do you use any pre-made loops, or are all loops made on the spot as well?

its all made on the fly,track by track,after every note is written, i use mute and a multi fx effeting the master channel to make an arrangement.a video of this process i will follow!

@slam-cut check out Ani who does live looping with NS here: http://discchord.com/blog/2013/10/16/ani-live-performance-at-analog-cafe...

She's got many many more videos floating around. All NS.

Uh, yeah, Ani is AWESOME!!!
I've seen other videos of her performances, but hadn't seen this one. Thanks for the link. Phenomenal stuff. I have no where near that sorta timing. I have to practice quite a few times on TRG pads, then I need to tweak beats in the piano roll editor. And it seems like her fingers never miss a key. Wow. Serious practice time required to achieve that sort of skill level.

I think I know NS until I watch her. Doesn't look like she changes MIDI channels for the controller. I suppose she has all tracks set to receive on channel 1 (for example) and then just controls which track is currently recording? Anyone got any tips on how to make this process a bit easier?

Matt really needs to get links to her performances on the NS home page. That would do a lot to boost sales, I think.

IMHO liveloooping with a sequencer is the future of live music, what do you think?
