Sure — here goes:Rather than just calling the Looper "weak" and underdeveloped maybe add some details to clarify the features you would like to see...
Overall I find it easier to have an external device for looping.Just having the basic controls modifiable and scene controllable would be a quantum jump forward. I can’t use the block at all with the way it is now.
If FAS made a dedicated looper that intergrated easily with Axe-Fx III and could use the FC-12 for control I would buy it.Loopers have unique hardware requirements, i.e. lots of memory. General-purpose guitar processors like the Axe-Fx don't need the amounts of memory that loopers require and adding that memory for a single effect would increase costs, probably considerably. Furthermore the processors used in products like the Axe-Fx are limited in the amount of memory they can address. The DSP used in the Axe-Fx III is the most powerful commercial DSP available but it's still limited in it's memory address space.
Also, most loopers trade off bit-depth and sample rate for loop time.
Therefore you're unlikely to ever find a multi-effect that has the loop time and features as a dedicated looper.
If I were to make a dedicated looper I probably wouldn't use a DSP but something like an ARM with a lot of external address space. There isn't really much audio processing required, it's mostly memory access.
I am envisioning a rack unit that used the FC-12 (or FC-6) to control the looper functions, much like the looper block does today, but would provide more advanced looping functions and would have MIDI sync capability. I currently use a Infinity Looper with the AXE-FX but would prefer control to be with the foot switches on the FC-12 which is not currently possible AFAIK.how would it integrate? what would happen?
I'm not radioguy, and this is mostly daydreaming:how would it integrate? what would happen?
