Difference between Lopping and Sampling

    My band has a few offers to play as a Trio.

    I need to replace the sounds of the drummer and the bass and keyboard player?
    Do I buy a looper and play their parts and then save for a live situation or do I get a sampler and just sample those missing parts from either my painstaking time and recording or sample it right from the actual recording.

    In some tunes I only need a certain part replaced. A sax or trumpet riff.

    Help. Obviously I'm a novice at this pre-recorded music for live perfomance situation.

    I can't help, but watching with interest, need to learn this aspect myself. :) I've yet to find a box that makes looping of live recordings in time really well, but I know they exist. (Of course, my timing is suspect, too, :unsure: but still, a better box would help.)

    I don't understand. Are you a one man band?

    We're a trio. We need fill the missing spaces since we don't have the drummer or guitarist/keyboardist for the gigs. Some songs require that we need to fill the keys parts and some songs I'll need to fill the bass parts if I play the keys and some some songs need some horn parts added.

    We will need a drum beat on all songs.

    Sounds like you need a laptop playing backing tracks.

    Sounds like a job for MIDI, to me.

    Looping is when you choose something off.... Like a hand or hair.... Sampling is when you either try out a bunch of things... Or digitally record sounds for playback...

    (I couldn't resist...... ;) )

    Sorry, I thought this was a tree trimming thread. I just got some free sample lopping shears off the classifieds.
