I feel like I am mostly past being a total beginner (making synths, pre record stuff to then play that back in a chain, mostly, so far), but one aspect I still struggle with is live recording/looping.
So I set out today to finally “get” the Dub Looper. I am mainly using Neil Parfitts guide #4. It’s for an outdated version, but I think I can string it together. I set my buffer to a new empty one, I set a trigger to reset it for every measure, I set engage(play) on and punch (record) on (with both set to ‘on’ behaviour). I set start = 0, Dub = 1, Wet = 1, Fade = 0.
I would now expect that when I play anything into the looper, it get recorded, and I will hear that recorded bit, repeated for every reset trigger, since I have dub to 1 and wet to 1. But still, I only hear my source, as if it was set to dry.
The only way I can hear anything of remote interest is if I crank the fade parameter up, and I get some sort of echoing behaviour that fades away. I cant get anything to stay 100% wet in the buffer.
Also, seeing Neil Parfitts old guide, he gets a transport guide, where he can see the recorded waveshape in the buffer. I can’t seem to locate this in the submenu for the looper. Is that gone now, or is it somewhere else? I think that could help me debug my issue.
Really hoping I missed something obvious here.
PS: I tried looking for some sort of newbie question mega thread, so if I missed something like that, please forgive me and point me in the right direction.
