That sounds pretty cool! I'd try it.
I've used live looping through apps a few times, but without a controller of sorts, it kind of defeats the purpose... I stick with my DL4 when I want to loop.
It will work as long as the iDevice cable is connected to the TWA.
i did try using the twa with garageband live loops, with the loop recording function. yes, it works great & i had lot of fun. it takes some time to actually believe that backing drum loops are playing through your acoustic guitar, but once u get over that - creativity just keeps flowing. it makes u think a little differently from regular fingerstyle guitaring, the loopy nature sends your playing down a slightly different, but rewarding path. (for example, i started creating all kinds of hip hop grooves on ac gtr as i started playing over the hip hop template loops in garageband)
SO i can say that the twa works great with looper in iOS. to add to dave's comments : " I've used live looping through apps a few times, but without a controller of sorts, it kind of defeats the purpose " .
Triggering the recorded loops on the ipad is possible through a dedicated midi foot controller like the behringer fcb. U can connect it into the ipad using the camera connection kit so that garageband receives midi messages (loop play, loop record etc).
In garageband, since u pre-set the number of bars(2,4,8 etc) u want to record for a loop(it even supports odd time signatures !) it automatically starts looping once u finish recording.
I'd like to use Garageband to augment the sounds coming out of the TWA - but am at a loss as to what physical connections I need to make to achieve this. How would I connect up the laptop, TWA and guitar to do this?
