one man army (looper?)
« on: February 14, 2019, 05:53:24 pm »
Hi everyone!

So my equipment so far is as follows:

2xelectric guitars
pod line6 hd500x
korg minilogue

What I want to do is to buy E drums (haven't decided which one yet, but I don't think it matters), and connect everything to a looper (that I have to buy).

I want to be able to connect 1x guitar, synth and drums to the looper simultaneously, without pluging and unpluging instrument each time, and connect looper to my computer to record it.

Do I need mixer, or just looper with 3x line in? Could you please recommend me mixer (if needed) and/or looper? Or maybe there is better solution?

Thank you in advance!

Hey! Just wanted to respond! I have no advice unforts!

I think the best way to go is do do some research, narrow it down then take a look at some YouTube reviews then go from there.

I've got a Boss RC3 but I know Rowland do another pedal that's more advanced with a load more inputs/pedals etc.

I put a post up about loop pedals and someone posted a link to the loop pedal world championships... So cool but might give you some inspiration also

I missed this one earlier...

Yes, you'll need a mixer.

A looper with multiple inputs might work, but good luck finding one that does what you want. A mixer is probably more flexible because it will let you add other instruments in the future.

Pretty much any mixer should work for you, such as the cheap Behringer Xenyx range. I think the biggest factor here is whether you want to capture loops in stereo.

As for connecting to the computer to record, are you talking about transferring the recorded loops to a PC for editing/mixing at a later date, in which case a number of loopers have a USB capability for this, including the Boss RC-3 mentioned by Danni.

If you are talking about real-time recording to a DAW, then it's not a looper you want. You'll be needing an audio interface for that.
