    Wishlist for Live-Looping

    I have my first tries with the Bitbox and I think it`s a great Looper. That`s what I want to mostly use it for, in a live situation with my Eurorack setup and also to play an instrument. I come back to one wish, I`ve previously expressed, to engage record with cv gate. I found it difficult in a live situation to handle that with the touchscreen and I was wondering if you could do that maybe via midi. Even to switch to another cell with midi or cv would be a great feature but I didn`t figured it out yet. Another thing that`s on my wishlist is a sound on sound option for live sampling, that would be great. I think Bitbox is a great sampler but now I´m in a phase where I don`t know if Bitbox is staying or have to leave.......sorry (only because for my needs)....... if there are any updates planned in the future in terms of more modulating and operating, the Bitbox definitely stays!! Thank`s for your great work (even if doesn`t fit to my needs) !!!!!!!!

    My current workflow would be greatly enhanced if the workflow looked like this:

    1. Arm a cell for record (from a CV trigger, using CV1-4)).
    2. The next trigger input to that cell starts record (using quantize settings).
    3. Record until either another trigger hits or we hit the sample length.
    4. Until the cell is armed again all incoming triggers now play the sample.

    That being said just having a CV trigger recording for a cell would be incredibly useful.

    this would be a great way to work."

    +2/3!


    I would love something like this and then after which time if you have cv modulation perhaps it could operate somewhat like 2hp Freez so that the audio can be mangled right after the buffer incoming is frozen - Id imagine this would work in with Matthew's description of the functionality... Thanks for considering this 1010!

    agreed, that's a great workflow.

    Monome Walk is an obvious candidate for this duty, and it would make my workflow with the Bitbox much smoother. I'm a definite +1 for desire for CV control of the REC funtion.

I would think that 99% of people would want to run to a clock, but free form looping could be good for creating the first loop, and then you would want the rest of the loops to be clocked to it from that point on. Sometimes I think having an inbuilt metronome "click" that could be turned on/off would help to capture the first loop.

    Totally agree.

    I forgot to mention that my Roland drum pads will trigger bitbox, patched straight in and unpowered?
    It's not a very strong gate signal, so it must have something to do with the piezo?

    Anyway yes, I agree - let's get the recording via CV trigger happening first, and worry about pedals later!

    Thanks all,

    The Behringer FCB1010 looks really cool and is overkill for a simple single pedal. The Deeper A-177-2 looks like a nice solution.

    Yes, it`s the Doepfer A-177-2. Simple and it works.

    Doepfer A-177-2? I just ordered one.

  • JohnJumper

    Yeah... I agree... I have a MXR Tap and just ordered a Doepfer A-177-2 that I think will work for this.

    I use for example a doepfer foot interface or a 7 dials "CV Express" for working with footswitches and pedals.

    I totally agree. But first a simple cv start/stop for recording would help so much !!!!!

    Momentary foot switch would be ideal. It is what I use with other guitar stuff (I had two of them for my Lexicon JamMan). I don't even have a midi foot controller any more. I can definitely live without the free form looping for now. With my Eurorack I normally start with a patch in place and then get the inspiration to add guitar over top of it. Man! This is exciting! I only started Eurorack and synth stuff 2.5 years ago. I have been a guitar player since 1985. It will be sweet to be able to make use of those skills with my Eurorack obsession now!
