Inspired by the Wishlist thread, there's one thing I've been mulling over for a while and would love to get sorted, but it doesn't come down to one piece of gear. As a fully live band (drums, bass, guit, synth/keys) we have lots of more complicated electronic ideas involving preprogrammed synths, fx, timed delays etc, etc, that we want to include in our live set. We don't want to work to a tick as we would lose the great live feel that have on stage, where we can take a song somewhere new quite spontaneously. What we need is the ability to synch all our midi equipment together, so that it runs to the tempo that one of us is tapping in whilst we play. The first things that we would want to get sorted is perfectly timed delays for guit and keys/synths, then probably arpeggiated or preprogrammed synth noises and samples. I've thought about doing it through or via Ableton, which can run to a tap and can adjust tempo in real time without glitching, but we haven't come to the right solution yet, and don't know what kit we would need to set this up. None of us are midi techs. Any ideas, suggestions, previous experience seriously appreciated. We are getting closer and closer to the idea that working to a tick might be worthwhile for these reasons, but I fear we would then lose the great thing we already have going as a fully live band.
