Back again at ZENAUDIO after trying some Hardware-Looper. The main plus of a looping pedal is the plug and play possibility even without a metronome. But mostly I work with completed arrangements, so this is not my main problem with ALK.
But after installing an using for some days I got problems with my quite old PC, because of stops and bad sound. All thoug I do not use any plugins.
So I decides to go to the top of the roof hardware looper the Headrush Looperboard that showed all features I need: 4 Chanel Mixer, effect section and 4 track looper. WOW, thats it. And it was until I checked the Sound and fell back down to ground. There ist still no digital technology available giving me the sound and the feel of ma analog DYNACORD Powermate - besides its shitty effects. The harsh and cold sounding Looperbord will return to sender, and my problem is back on the list again.
What do I need to have the perfect sound of analog signal chain and e looper running parallel (it does not need to have the same sound quality as the original track).
Here is what I want to do besisally:
1) I am aguitarrist, so I want to have 2 or three Guitars Tracks one Bass
2) I am also composer, so I would like to add Midi-sounds on 2 or 3 tracks
3) I also play saxophone so again 2 or 3 audio-tracks
4) And as a SInger I would recommend some 4 Tracks more.
5) for rhythm I use Loops or a daburka so again 3 tracks
My actual Audiointerface is the one inside the powermate quite old fashion 4 in 4 out.
So first of all What Computer would I need? I would like to be mobile and perhaps there is a 2 in 1 or also a Tablet that could work? I have spent my digital live in the world of Windows, so there should be good arguments to change to Apple.
Second would be the foot switch to direct the Looper: Is there a Bluetooth switch that can control start/stopp/overdub in time?
And what Audiointerface would you recommend if I ever take out my Powermate? I need perfect sounding Preamps and a super DSP for Delay, Reverb, MOD, Compressor, EQ
Does such an Equipment exist?
