Re: TC Electronics Fireworx

Now I solved the "sequencer" question, it's a pre-set named so! And  
this pre-set sounds like a horrible synth sequence!  Except for that  
I'm finding the Fireworx very useful, both for studio mixing and live  
looping performance. I guess it fits best before a looper so you can  
build music on-the-fly by looping your instrument through different  
Fireworx settings. With a flute you can get both a fat bass sound and  
cosmic pads, as well as some freaky lead sounds (vocoder, chord,  
whammy pedal). it's a good thing that you can patch so many  
controllers to different parameters. Have to check the vocoder more...
