Thank you very much for the reply Lukas, and adding to the issue tracker.
Now a word about the quantizing issue.
I just checked, and even paused, the auto loop won’t allow anything to be looped that isn’t on a beat marker. This is something I most definitely can do on my wego (and frequently do) as the song is playing. I feel if anyone wants the beat to loop on a beat marker they should time their loops on the beat marker. Or perhaps there could be a setting to quantize loops for people with bad timing. (Haha) Ideally there could be a quantize setting that allowed an adjustment fo sensitivity. Ie on the half, quarter, eighth beat, etc… then default it could be like it is now so beginners don’t get messed up but once someone has some timing they could adjust the sensitivity of the program… you guys are after all trying to make this a viable alternative to serato, tractor, record box…
This issue for me is mostly when I’m trying to loop specific vocals, and then halving them, quartering them, etc… if you loop at the wrong time your shortened loops are crap.
Example, song Rio.
“Wherever she goes I go, we roll, we go, flyin over cities down to Rio, its real x2
Wherever she goes I go, we roll, we go x2
Wherever she goes I go x4
Wherever she x2
Whe… whe… w… w… w… w… w… w… w… w…”
Sounds amazing if I drop the loop on the “Wherever” but quantized to the 1 it lands on the “she” so the second line ends up being something like “she goes I go, we roll, we go, flyin over” and the last line is sh,sh,… just believe me when I tell you it sounds terrible.
Having said all this, I have figured out how to perform the said transition but have had to switch to using the loop roll (or to adjust the beat grid beforehand). It would be nice to have the same control with the loop button as other controllers though as not all transitions are prepared ahead of time and some times you are just winging it. More control is never a bad thing right?
Thanks again for the reply,
That means a lot to me.
I hope this post wasn’t too long and therefore not interesting enough for you to read.
