A good first (and only) rehearsal with Martin Archer last night, preparing for tonight’s gig at Bishops House. It went smoothly from a tech perspective, although my previous audio “hiccup” issue seems to have returned on an occasional basis – the sound cuts out and I get digital clicking until I adjust the sample rate (then reset it!). Frustrating. It may be an under-powered laptop – it’s 1.8Ghz, when ableton recommend 2Ghz as a minimum. Could be further expenditure is required!
Musically, we soon decided not to loop the keyboard as well as the guitar – things got too mushy too quickly. Even with a single guitar loop, Martin’s twin DD20 setup filled things out nicely 😉
