hey guys okay my question sounds weird, I explain: I have a looper RC-20xl boss. I recorded a lot of loops that I found really nice, I would like to record them on my logic and be able to use them. So I suppose I will need to set a very precise tempo on them. Anyone got any idea of how I can do that? I just tried to record them on logic and play with the miliseconds in order to get a correct bpm but I reckon that's so long to do it must be an other way!! ALSO my looper doesn't have any MIDI output cheers
It sounds like you're asking for an audio-export feature, something that shows up only in more recent devices, like the RC-30. That has a USB port, which you can use to transfer WAV files both to and from the pedal.
Your solution of recording the pedal's output with Logic can probably be made to work. You may be able to cut down on the noise in a few ways:
- Try running the pedal on battery power, with nothing physically connected except your computer. This removes the possibility of a ground loop, a common noise source.
- Try turning the output volume (LEVEL) up. If the noise is being added to the signal after the circuitry that controls the volume, the loop's volume will increase, but not the noise.
- Try turning the input volume (MIC/INST) up. This will only work for new loops. This works basically the same way as the previous point, and will help if the noise is added before the circuitry that controls the output volume.
