I don’t know why it is so important to declare someone the “best” but the enthusio website makers have made this their motto.
You can still vote for the “best live loop artist” until June 1st, 2018. The entries contain members of our community (Randolf Arriola), a few great other musicians who aren’t active here, and several people that I haven’t heard of but who are great I’m sure 🙂
Europe – the “Paris Spring Loops” festival won’t happen this year but there will be a small tour through France, Germany (this poster shows the concert in Ulm), and possibly other countries in the first half of June.
Mexico will see another livelooping festival this May, again organized by Eliud Ernandes and Lizeth Ruvalcaba.
California – this year’s Y2K18 festival in Santa Cruz will happen from 26th through the 28th of October
Ken teaches guitar at several universities in California. He loves livelooping, especially using the Quantiloop app for iPad. Ken is a beta tester for the new Quantiloop version for iPhone.
Quantiloop has four concurrent loops that can be synchronized or not synchronized, and it has a lot of sophisticated features. Ken Karsh uses the IRIG BlueBoard footpedal to switch loops on and off, record, and overdub. He says that Quantiloop in combination with this pedal comes close to the Boss RC-300.
