This is my first video with the live looping setup that I’ve been playing around with for the last few months.  After playing with a few loopers, both software and hardware I love the RC-300. I first went the software route, but had a few crashes and the setup was so much more intense. I tried the RC-30, but felt it was too limited and so I ended up with the RC-300. It’s built like a tank and I’ve only ever had a few issues with it. I’ve been able to configure everything so that I works well for how I like to work.

It’s a little hard to hear in the video because you can hear the actual sound of me hitting the guitar in the condenser mic which in this case was always on, but I built 2 drum triggers into the guitar one under the bridge and one under the pickguard. That way I can actually trigger drum sounds via the Roland TM-2 which I loaded samples of my own.  Don’t mind that strip of electrical tape…I didn’t mess up my first attempt…no…

Also, usually in a live setting and using a dynamic microphone, I have a A/B switcher pedal that controls whether to send the mic signal to the looper or to the house, so that all the ambient sound and extra things that are out of my control don’t get into the loop.
