Just bought one, like a loop pedal but for midi. Sync to MTC and is powered from the octopus midi socket. Instant looping! I like to play the 'keyboard' of the Octopus re pitching lines live etc, perfect for grabbing those.

Hey Nick,

Cool! I haven't seen this one.

I recently bought the Singular Sound Aeros (audio) looper.

Before a few years ago I had been experimenting with a hybrid hardware/DAW setup and decided it wasn't for me. I switched to what I would describe as a 3 stage loop recording hardware-only studio setup. Using various sequencers, I first record MIDI loops, then I record those as audio loops (2 RC-505s and 1 Aeros), then I play live to record into my master recorder (Cymatic Audio); with stems recording simultaneously to a second Cymatic Audio.

Two years ago, my inspiration for my portion of the upcoming Octopus release v6.0 was to utilize all of the existing capabilities of the Octopus to build a new view mode that behaves like a Boss RC-505 looper, for MIDI, crossed with the most useful features of LogicPro X. You could say that Solo Recording View is my MIDI looper for the Octopus - although there are a lot of other non-looper related features such as keyboard keys play chords, keyboard transpose, and tons of other stuff.

I'm all in with MIDI looping as my favorite workflow concept.

Best,

Eric

USB socket, not midi.
