After some setup changes I was left with only an old-school Make Noise Shared System. I decided to add a Model:Samples because playing a Techno-ish live set with only a Shared System is challenging for my skill level.
This setup has the same issue than my past ones, it’s not easy to create smooth DJ-like transitions. I need 2 features: Recording synced loops and seamlessly transition between the loop and live audio. If effects or filters can be added, even better.
So here’s my question: In 2021 are there cheaper and simpler options than a used Octatrack MKI for transition looping?
EDIT: I forgot to mention that my ideal solution is one box that does both the looping and crossfading instead of separate looper and mixer.
