Ok. I have this idea cooking in my head to do a live drum and bass looping solo act. I wanted to know if anyone here has ever done something similar or knows of someone who has. I'm sure I won't be the first to attempt it, and that's not what this is about. I feel like I have to do this, and I want to glean any knowledge and advice I can from anyone who's gone before me. I want to know what problems to anticipate or what things to look for or avoid (gear-wise, setup-wise, hell..diet-wise). I'v got all my usual bass gear (bass, line6 dl4, pre, power, 2X10,& 1X18,), plus a nice yamaha drum kit, some cheap but decent drum mics (CAD), and head full of determination. The main things I'm lacking are a mixer, some speakers, and a looper that I can put in the mixer's effects loop (maybe the dl4 would work, but man wouldn't an Echoplex or Repeater be SWEET). The plan is, mic the drums, d.i. the preamp, into the mixer, into the looper in the fx loop, back into the mixer (duh), and so forth. I'll be able to loop either/both the bass and/or the drums, as well as play one or the other live with the loop. This is about where I'm at. Any suggestions? Advice? Moral support?
