@anomalous jamming was the problem for me. I wanted to use it to play beats that I made on the OP-1 in a live set up. DJ mixer with the SP on 1 channel and the OP-1 on the other. At first, I sampled each individual track to separate pads. It was really tough to hit even more than 1 pad at a time at exactly the same moment to get the samples to line up. So when that failed, I sampled full 4-track beats to different pads, but it was still hard to switch between loops in a fluid way for me. The pads on the SP are too stiff for my liking. It has a lot of great features and sounds great, but I never got good enough at using it on the fly. Maybe with more practice I could have made it work.
@sammyjams Is this what you were trying to achieve? Here I extracted loops from ableton projects, 1 for drums, 1 for main loop+bass, 1 for extra melodic layer and 1 for vocal sample. Basically jamming with them with built in fx. That was a couple months ago and I found more live jam tricks since. It took me a while to get a hang of it but now the SP is my only live performance gear. Love it.
