Ultimate (Guitar) Looper/Solo Jamming Tool Patch
I'm slowly trying to learn Pd, but the first patch I want to make would replace my Boss RC-3 looper pedal (and would add more features).
If possible, the dream is a 4 track looper and synth/sampler/drum machine patch with assignable effects.
1st page is just for recording loops and adjusting volumes with the 4 knobs. I was hoping there was a way to be able to select the the track you want to record onto by just slightly moving a volume knob (the last volume knob moved would be the one you are going to record/overdub on). Aux button (pedal) triggers record/overdub, but how could I change to the next page? Is there a way where a quick tap would mean record, and a short hold could be change page, 3 quick taps could be stop playback, etc.? Or would I have to sacrifice one of the note keys as a page change button? Emulating existing looper pedal switch functionality would be ideal.
I would also want the keyboard to play something so I can overdub that in as well (whose synth's/sample parameters can be changed in another page, and you could even select a drum machine type thing for the keyboard as well).
I'm still thinking what would be the most convenient and funnest things to have on the other pages, but I was considering reverb, delay, and maybe a loop reverse. These effects and settings would be assigned to each track independently.
Any guitar players out there that would like this?? Do you guys have any ideas??This would be a looper pedal KILLER! It could have additional/better features than the best loopers out there. I could be extremely wrong, but this sounds relatively easy to do if you are well versed in Pd. If anyone is interested in this and would like to start working on it, please let me know so I can help and be involved in any useful way possible.
