European livelooping festivals – it looks like there will be another “Paris Spring Loops” festival and subsequent tour through France, Germany, and possibly other countries, probably in the first half of June.
May will see another round of festivals in Mexico, again organized by Eliud Ernandes and Lizeth Ruvalcaba who will also be part of the European tour.
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.
