    I'm going to buy a loopstation and I thought it'd be very cool if I could use a mic to 'beatbox' beats and play bass over it.

    Anyone thought of doing this? Anyone done it before?

    ya, it's fun. in fact, there is a drum machine software product from acoustica called beatcraft that i did all the electronic samples for. i also did an add-on pack with my own "beatbox" sounds ... it's actually pretty cool.... including "mystery sounds" :)
     
  3. I would be suprised if Keller Williams didn't do that already :)

    actually, thats a cool idea, i know Keller Williams has looped a whole slew of instruments, vocals one of them, but i am not sure about beatboxing...it'd be a good idea if you can do it well :)

    Btw, I'm buying the DT Jamman, I like the idea of a USB connection, plus the adaptor comes along, and the adaptor for an RC 20 X is and extra 35$.

    Battery 2 comes with some pretty good beatbox stuff. i have a blast just smashing the pads with my mouse. one of these days, i'll try to actually write something with them.

    ..or i could find someone who is just really talented at it. :)
     
  6. here is a bass player who jams with a beatboxer...not exactly what we are talking about, but here are some songs you could cover :)

    i haven't seen this guy talked about on TB, usually any bass video at all will end up at talkbass, but i don't recall seeing Les July...he's good though
