Looptimus with Ableton Live
Frequently Asked Questions
How Can You Use Looptimus With Ableton Live?
There are so many ways to use Looptimus. One of the main ways people use it is by assigning button 1A to Song 1 in their setlist, 1B to Song 2, etc. You can also break up your songs into sections and use a bank for each song. Song 1 is Bank 1. Intro is A, Verse is B, Chorus is C, etc. Get creative and make it work for how YOU perform.
What Kind Of Expression Pedal Should I Use?
Most expression pedals should work with Looptimus, however, we recommend pedals that are stereo TRS, 10k. Our favorites are the Roland EV-5 or the M-Audio EXP. The expression pedal functions as a control change parameter in your MIDI application. NOTE: Looptimus does NOT work with Volume pedals... only MIDI expression pedals (yes, there is a difference.)
Should I Use MIDI or USB?
The beauty of Looptimus is that you can use both at the same time or just the one you prefer! The same messages and commands are sent out both jacks simultaneously. This allows you to control multiple devices!
Ableton Isn't Assigning MIDI With Looptimus
Under Ableton Live preferences, select the MIDI tab. Next to ‘Looptimus’, make sure the ‘Remote’ switch is turned ON. If you’re using Looptimus to play pads, make sure the ‘Track’ switch is turned on as well.
How Does Looptimus Work With PRIME?
Besides perfectly? Well… Simply plug in Looptimus using an Apple Camera Connector Kit. Button 1A will start song 1, button 1B will start song 2, etc. The STOP button will stop all audio. In All Access Mode, buttons A and D will change the tempo while buttons B and E will change the key of the selected track. You can also map any button to control different functions in PRIME.
What Are The Dimensions Of The Looptimus?
Looptimus is designed to work well with musicians in a live setting whether you’re a guitar player that wants a familiar pedal-feel for a loop rig, a keyboard player that can mount it to their stand, or a drummer who places it right next to the high-hat pedal. Looptimus is perfect for any aspect of stage music.
