Can I use this guitar looper with a live drummer?
Yes! In Ableton 11, there is a function called “Follow” which will follow a live drummer and adjust the BPM on the fly.
Can I use this setup with a guitar amp?
Absolutely. The audio signal from your audio interface can be sent to a PA, guitar amp, home stereo receiver, or straight to headphones.
Can I use this setup with a band / other musicians?
Yes. There are a couple ways to do this. You can using something called “Link” in Ableton if each musician has their own laptop. This requires all the computers and phones to be on the same wifi network. Having tried it, I’m not sure I would rely on this, but it does work.
The second method is to plug everyone into the same laptop using an audio interface that has enough inputs for the whole band.

How is the Clip Slot Looper different that the Looper that comes with Ableton?
The Clip Slot Looper turns every clip slot in Ableton’s session view into a looper. This means that each slot becomes a looper. The stock looper that comes with Ableton can’t do this.
