Before I jump into the pool...
Hey everyone... I'm wondering if someone can tell me if BM3 is the right tool to do what I'm looking to do before I dump a bunch of time trying to figure it out:
Essentially I'm looking to use BM3 as a super-dooper LaunchPad with complete control over EQ, FX, etc. and not be locked into LP's workflow/process.
So here's the workflow I have in mind:
1) Create drum loops in SeekBeats (i.e. create a groove, use SB export feature to record a 4 beat loop @ say 132bpm)
2) Open this loop in BM3 (via audioshare, etc.) and assign to a "pad"
3) Route that pad to mixer so I can use FX, EQ, mixing
4) Turn the loop on/off by hitting pad
I know from watching a lot of videos etc. that BM does WAYYY more than this in terms of sequencing, etc. but I'm really just looking for a live loop triggering environment. I like what I see in BM in terms of the way the mixer is setup, etc. but so far I'm not seeing how to assign a sample to a pad and have it trigger loop on off.. All I see are tutorials where you assign a single drum hit to a pad for example then sequence it, etc.
My initial stump is I can't seem to figure out how to "latch" a pad...
