Big Railroad Blues - Demo of Midi-Guitar-iPad Rig

YouTuber us citizen shows off his fun MIDI guitar set up with Quantiloop and Tonestack on this folk song.

Video Description:

This is not art :-)

This is merely another demo in which I begin to learn, and show, the capabilities of my new MIDI-Guitar and IPad rig ...

THIS IS A LIVE AUDIO RECORDING. There was no post production, mixing, effects, or mastering performed on the audio. The sound you are hearing is exactly what was recorded, in stereo, to a video camera, in one take.

This is not a great performance … mediocre at best. It was just something simple I could mess around with to show you the basics of how the system works. As such I debated whether to upload this recording, and decided to only reluctantly. But I wanted some folks to see it, so please understand that It is merely intended to show the rig in a way that other musicians can understand and perhaps appreciate

Having said that ...

In this video I show how I can build a song from guitar, bass, organ, and vocals, in real time, using the Fishman Triple Play / SampleTank IOS midi-guitar synthesizer, along with Tonestack and Quantiloop Pro running in AudioBus on an IPad.

I did not work out every nuance of a canned performance. There’s a ton of mistakes! :-) In that regards it is somewhat representative of what I might play live at any given moment at a gig :-) What I really hope to show is that there is, in fact, a great deal of flexibility for being spontaneous, with this system.

I can adjust the volume of the guitar, synthesizer, and loop, with separate pedals, I can choose from dozens, if not hundreds, of different “instruments” on the synthesizer, and I can combine them with lead guitar running through all kinds of effects devices to create a wide palette of sound.

I hope you enjoy it.
