How Music Technology Can Be Used In Performance
For my example of using Technology in a performance, I'm going to base it on Ed Sheeran's Live Loop Station performance on SBTV.
Ed Sheeran uses the Boss RC-20XL pedal (Loop Station) to structure his performance in a way that wouldn't be possible with just him on his own, for example; He plays a short riff in the introduction and loops it throughout the song, whilst playing another rhythmic pattern on his guitar, this creates a great sound.
With 5 and 1/2 minutes of loop sample time, it was perfect for artists to orchestrate samples and loops for an entire song, layering vocals, guitar and other things to create quite an amazing effect.
Very similar to the RC20 but with 16 minutes of recording time, in the same box as its predecessor. Now artists could almost work entire sets around loops and samples.
While it lacked the versatility and features of the RC20, it fit into a very small space of a pedalboard, yet still provided 16 minutes of looping time, but for a single guitar, unlike the RC20 and RC20XL which had multiply instrument and microphone inputs as well.
This features 49 minutes of recording time, advanced multi-tracking, effects, midi and many other features never before seen in a loop station. A truly revolutionary all-in-one loop station. At the time of its release, no other looper had the massive amount of features and potential that the RC-50 had. In fact, local St. Louis band, The Tender Tribe still uses these things when they record and perform.
With just under 3 hours of recording time, Boss really blew loopers’ minds with so much bang, yet somehow stuffed back into the original RC20-sized package. The RC-30, while not as feature-laden as the RC-50, carried some impressed tracking capabilities to coincide with the awesome amount of recording time.
This lets you record up to three hours of tracks and is equipped with 99 banks of storage, 16 on-board effects and tons of connectivity for microphones, guitars, midi, and just about anything else! The RC-300 also feature multi-track sampling that allows you to stop and start different loops independently of one another. Personally, we here in the TSV shop can’t wait to get our hands on one!
