This post is for owners of the Octatrack, and of the 301.
My understanding is that the PICKUP machines enable you to use the machine as a looper.
I was curious how you would go about emulating this behavior in the ER-301? Is there a particular configuration that gets you close to what the Octa does, or are there glaring differences? If so, what are they? I realize there were some other threads about this (for example this one), but I wanted to get more information from users specifically to see what sorts of experiments people have done.
I’d assume you’d want to use the 301’s PEDAL LOOPER for this.
Somehow I was literally watching this exact video last night.
Had no idea you’d employed the 301 as such in it. Cool to know.
Yeah; I experimented with both the feedback looper and the pedal looper - I am not sure which I like better for the task to be honest, but I found the feedback looper a little more intuitive, as the pedal looper seems to be designed to be free-run and not sync’d to anything in particular, although I got it to kinda work. Going to read more about both approaches and check details again tonight.
W/ the feedback looper I set my feedback to ~80% which seems nice for a trailoff.
Do you have other thoughts or recs? Using it in this way is obviously so simple but it yields a lot of potential to have this little machine running in the background.
