need a tutorial for absolute begginers, dm me lol
BRILLIANT~! So much good stuff here. Question: Who is this Justin he keeps referring to? (Answered: Justin Frankel) Also, how is he listening to his click without his click going out to his mains? Also, I want to know more about his hardware set up. Your follow-on video to this answered a lot of my other questions!
Who is Justin that he keeps mentioning?
I remember when Minilogue just came out and I was trying to help Scott out with a workaround for an annoying Minilogue MIDI clock bug using Reaper. The 'workaround' didn't actually work and I was quite embarrassed. Fortunately, Korg fixed the bug in a firmware update, so it was alright in the end.
Got to chat with him for a sec in El Paso Texas at tricky falls, which is now closed.
Huge inspiration always
This is looking perfect for the Nektar Pacer I have. The Pacer is so flexible with many programmable footswitches, but, it is somewhat like Reaper, you make it do what you want. Nektar Pacer has drivers for different DAWs. Reaper is one of them so setup is very easy!
Love Tycho and this was very educational!
Hi there ! Many thanks for your tutorial.
I'm playing live a doublebass solo.
Reaper + super 8 looper + midi foot switch controler + multi out soundcard
It works really great !!! I play live and sync off. With that i can freely choose the tempo and the lenght of my loops accordind to my mood.
But is there a way to have loops playing together with different lenght ?
Dude, Tycho said he's a huge fan of YOU. what?...nice...(me too btw thank you)
Whaaaaaaaat you got tychoooo????
What is the computer he uses? UAD Apollo sounds good but Amplitube in Reaper for live effects does that cause latency? Or do you play with direct monitoring from Apollo then add the effects from Amplitube for subsequent loops?
Tycho is such a cool, nice guy, in addition to being an incredible musician and songwriter. And this is yet another reason for everyone to use Reaper. Great vid!
Hi Tycho. How come I can't unfreeze midi tracks on Reaper 6.3? I saw some tutorials which showed how to do it. So I tried it and it worked but when I wanted to unfreeze it I couldn't. Is there a new way to do it? I need to edit some midi tracks.
Awesome video !!! Who is Justin? Anyone? Bueller ... Anyone ... ?
Thanks this was absolutely awesome! And if possible, it would be great to have Tycho back to explain the rest of his Reaper live setup :)
Nice as always! Interview Ben Levin! He uses reaper in very cleaver ways!
What a great video! I've been fucking around with Super8 but this cleared some things up for me.
Tycho TALKS About Live Looping with Super8 (which is still interesting, but not what I was expecting from the title). Thanks to both of you anyway though. I tried to get my head around Super8 once before and gave up. Maybe it's time to try again.
