I have watched a few 301 videos and I love the format and layout. I checked out the Wiki, but I see some of the recording stuff ins’t populated yet, and I have some specific questions:
I want to use an ES-8 to send a stereo signal from my DAW in to the 301. I’m using ableton and I’d also send a clock over the ES-8 in to the 301. What I want to do is be DJing and playing a song in ableton and have the 301 be loop recording 8 bars and then just be constantly recording over the 8 bar buffer. I’d like to be able to on the fly decide to keep the 8 bars that are being recorded and then quickly (like with the push of a button) slice the 8 bars in to 16 equal slices that can then be played back with my external midi controller.
My question: Is it currently possible to be recording 8 bars based on an incoming clock and have it loop record over itself constantly?
Is it possible to trigger this loop so that it will then slice in to 16 equal divisions?
I’m also happy having it just constantly slice itself every time it is recorded and then push some button that will just stop the loop recording. I’ll be using an external mixer to move back and forth between the DJ set in the DAW and the slicing set on the 301. Thanks!
