Record loops with a drum beat too?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about buying a spider 60, but I want to layer guitars over the drum loops to build a song.

 

Is it possible to play a drum track and record loops over it, then stop and play it all back together?

Since the drum loops and the looper are separate from each other for the use of practicing, there is not a way presently to press a single button and have both the drum loop and guitar loop play simultaneously. The process would be to start each loop one after another. For example; Record a guitar rhythm over a drum loop (up to 60 second loop time) > Stop looping > Play/overdub loop.   Through this process you wouldn't have to turn off the drum loop. But if you'd like, you would then have to play the guitar loop then the drum loop (or vise/versa).

 

Since the drum loops were intended for practicing; if you would like to build a song off of the drum loops provided in the Spider V 60, I recommend recording these loops to a recording device. With recording via Spider V's USB out, you can record to your computers sound card or DAW  ( GarageBand, Protools, Logic).

I was hoping it would've been more like the Spider Jam in that respect.

It's cool that they can be recorded via USB.

Thanks Nick for the helpful info. It helps me know which amp to buy.

 

FYI ... I too wish there was a spider jam version of the V. I'm likely to buy the Jam because of the recording features.
