Welcome back to our Looper how-to series now as we bring you a guide on trigger functions. We hope you’ve been having fun making music with the Looper and have been able to check out our simple guides… If not, then do check out what we’ve covered so far:

Making music isn’t just about looping beats though, it’s a journey of self-expression. While your creations are most probably sounding lit, it’s those personal touches that you’ll get from manipulating the sounds your way, that is truly going to take your beats from something anybody can create, to something only you can.

Over the next three videos, Tommy is going to show you some extra Looper features that will help you to do just that, starting with trigger functions…

Trigger functions are really easy to use and can give you a lot more control over the sound you want to create. Going out of time isn’t an issue, the inbuilt tech makes sure of it. So whatever level you’re at, producing beats and making them your own is as simple as a few taps.

Thanks again for tuning in everybody. Next week, we’re going to show you guys how to change the key of the music, which is extremely handy if you want to lay a vocal, or you’re planning on playing extra instrument parts over the top. We’re also going to be looking at tempo changes, to help you to further personalise your productions.
