OK, long setup, but here I go. I found a great live looping vst (G Loop) that fits my needs perfectly except for one thing: It syncs to the host, but it starts the loop on the nearest beat, and I can’t get it to engage the looper at the next bar. If I’m playing drums, I want to hit my MIDI trigger button (FCB1010) on beat 3, get set, and then have the loop start on Beat 1 of the following bar. (Ableton Live’s looper does this well. I just don’t want to pay $500 for a looper)
My track setup is where i have an audio track with the looper on it, and a separate MIDI track routed to that audio track. When I play hit my FCB1010, it goes to the MIDI channel, which then sends it to the audio track with the looper on it.
Is there a way to set the MIDI channel to take the MIDI signal in, and then delay it a prescribed amount of beats? It’d be great to offset it up to 8 beats, or 2 bars to give me a chance to hit the button and run back to the drums or piano.
Let me know if anything is unclear. Thanks for any help you all can offer. I’m always grateful.
