I"ve built a few stomp boxes before. Live looping appears to be pretty renowned. I have seen a dude construct midi pads right into his guitar. I would love to try farmer footdrums some day. Steve Hill is obviously awesome.Right currently I"m in the process of structure diy piezo pads for a foot operated drum module. I need inspiration!Sjust how me just how you have resolved the difficulty of making your one male band simply a little more than "just a man and his guitar".

Center Class Rut pulls off a pretty great "Guitar and also Drummer" duo. But yes, a looper seems pivotal.Do what the drummer is doing.

Abelton Live or Logic/Mainphase via some kind of footswitchable midi setup. A laptop-powered setup seems to me prefer it is really the way to go for maximum adaptability as tright here are endless amounts of software tools and also plugins that sound excellent.I used to be analog/real-world instrument biased, however software program has actually gained really great. I also feel prefer laptops have actually come to be a norm on stages these days so it is no much longer shunned in the exact same means it was as soon as I initially began gigging.

I always loved the way Liam Finn deserve to be a one man band:He talks around it a little at the beginning of this vid:This is a better version though:

This. Ableton is extremely functional for stuff like this. If you do not prefer the concept of using a lapheight, though, you deserve to constantly get creative with sequencers/samplers as well as other loopers. For a DAWmuch less setup, I personally would go via a Blooper and/or other "weird" loopers together with an effective sequencer choose a Teenage Engineering OP-Z or an Elektron Digitakt.
I"m actually really interested in Ableton live and also perhaps adding in the brand-new Vochlea mic for synth pads (which is basically a voice operated midi regulated for those that are not familiar).The drum pads I"m structure appropriate currently will probably use Roland TM-2 for the versatility of making use of my very own samples. I"m trying to number out if I could construct somepoint that I can stand also on while I play.I"m certain there are other one male band style performers right here, and I would really, Reeeally love to watch your rigs.

I would most likely just use an audio-to-MIDI plugin in Ableton quite than making use of a USB mic, specifically since the huguy voice is monophonic. I"ve heard excellent things around MIDI Guitar 2.0 from Jam Origin. Sorry I have no pics to post: I"ve been in a years lengthy style phase for my brand-new rig as various other life priorities tend to push it to the back burner.
Been doing open mics and also any type of complicated setup is just not worth the bother. Looping live is as well time consuming and also boring for the audience, so my two remedies are:Looper via memory (Digitech Jamman stereo, Boss RC-3) or Boss JS-8 (present design is JS-10)With both, you can load them up at home and also the just do your point live over the backing track. With the loopers, I deserve to document chords, overdubs and also bass, or feed it from the synthesizer"s sequencer through the board. I carry a GT-1, plug it right into the looper and also execute the music. JS-8 additionally takes a feed from the board and also requires no exterior FX (they are constructed in). Both approaches have actually worked extremely well.
