Re: Live looping parameters for a disabled musician
Hi and thanks for replying, I think initially we will aim for simple EDM style, Hip Hop etc. Electronic drums, bass and pads. Then develop towards more glitchy experimental stuff, like Andre La Fosse, Beardyman, even towards Alexander Schubert. But starting simple.

should be plenty of advice here for you.
...but to unlock that it'd be good if you van share a bit about the type of music your friend wants to loop with.
from Ed Sheeran to abstract noise to ambient droney...and so on.
each takes a different approach to controls needed.

Subject: Live looping parameters for a disabled musician
ifrst post so please forgive any list protocol mistakes.
A physically disabled musician/colleague of mine has asked me to build her a DJ-like looper program (I can use PD or Supercollider), with an arcade joystick as the hardware interface. The design technicalities are up to me and she has been fairly specific about the nature of the instrument. The joystick offers 4-axis binary switches, with an additional 8 binary switches. My question is this: if this instrument was all you had to hand (on a desert island e.g.) what parameters would you wish to have available? Buttons for sounds (notes and hits), and joystick for control (record/overdub/erase etc.); or vice-versa. Option anxiety is a challenge at the moment, so any advice would be very much appreciated. Many thanks.
