Greetings. I’m looking for something that does MIDI looping and allows you to save the loop after for use in other settings. I’m wondering if the Hermod, or Pyramid, might be the thing. I also love the idea of the MIDI effects.
I was thinking Hermod because I have Eurorack and would love the host functionality. I also have a Five12 Vector that isn’t going anywhere for traditional step sequencing. I do also have MIDI synths I’d use with it.
So, my questions:
If you’re using it for building parts by looping, are you happy with it as a MIDI looper? Is it missing anything important? If so, does the Pyramid have that thing?
Can you overdub on a track, and if so, is there an undo function?
Is there a way to use a foot pedal to move it in and out of record mode?
Is there a way to manually assign parameters to a track, say pitch, mod wheel and aftertouch? I see there are defaults in the manual (like pitch, gate, velocity). I know I’d need extra CV outs for that (could also use MIDI).
Is the 64 step limit and issue for recording live parts? Is the Pyramid better?
Will I have much need for the tiny screen with my intended use?
I’m also considering a Bastl MIDI looper, but it doesn’t have export.
Thank you for your thoughts.
