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.
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.
