From briefly playing with Loopmash 2 I must say it is far superior to that of Loopmash one. I still find it highly convoluted however in the way it works, the ability to easily mix it down etc. I will probably not use it much due to this as it is far different than how I would work my drums in Stylus RMX etc. I do like the performance controllers however… a lot. They are super simple to use, sound great, are tight and without falter. I could not help but think how amazing it would be if I could send an audio output from another track straight into the performance controllers of Loopmash two for the stutter, staccato, rewind etc effects. I know Steinberg is still behind when it comes to sidechaining into instruments, but this is a perfect example of how and why it should be done. It really opens up tons of creative possibilities.
Another idea would be to make a standalone plugin of the performance controllers in Loopmash 2 which can be inserted and used on any track within cubase for instance rewind, stutter etc effects. This would be like a dblue Glitch or Effectrix built right into Cubase. Super easy to use and I must say, I find it sounds tighter than Effectrix when in use.
I know these types of effects are a novelty and not for everyone, but for those who could use it, do you see this as a possible nice addition to Cubase? The programming and idea is already present in Cubase, we just need it expanded I feel. Would go nice with some programmed drums from GA1 for instance.
What do you think Steinberg? Please consider this or something similar to be implemented into Cubase?
Thanks for reading.
