live looping implementation

Postby jguerrero » Tue Nov 26, 2019 6:13 am

Hi there,

Trying to implement a live setup that let me improvise music via live looping:
1.- midi controller
2.- instruments served in carla
3.- looping in sooperlooper
4.- Mixing all in ardour

My problem is I that can't figure out how to automate the instrument channel selection with midi cc or notes, any help is very appreciated, thanks in advance

You need to open the in-build interface for the plugin (Xmonk.lv2) ( the little wrench in the rack interface) and enable under MIDI:
[x] Send Control Changes

then the ModWheel works.

You guys trying to use "loopers" live may want to try a real-time arranger instead. The latter better simulates live human accompaniment, and can be easier to use live because the software continuously analyzes your playing and follows you, rather than requiring you to operate the software while you're playing.

My program "BackupBand" is a realtime arranger for linux,

Jeff, are there any videos of this in operation? Looks interesting.

Konfyt (https://github.com/noedigcode/konfyt) is ideal for switching patches for live playing. Patch switching can be done with any MIDI event (CC, note or program change).

1.) It could route MIDI to the appropriate instruments in Carla:

2.) You could even host SFZ or SF2 Soundfont instruments directly in Konfyt.

Definitively will take a look on that, is master branch the stable one?

Yes (but testing branch is not necessarily unstable at the moment).
