Set up your MIDI controller with Regroover
Every layer is assigned to a note from C3 to F3*. When one or more of these notes are transmitted from a MIDI controller and received through the host into Regroover, then the playback begins for the relevant layer.
How to locate C3 on your MIDI controller
- Locate the C note on your midi controller.
- Press it repeatedly and use the octave buttons to scan through octaves. You will know that you are on the right octave when you hear the first layer playing back.
Strategically place loop markers for each layer
By strategically placing the loop markers, you can create on the fly new arrangements by controlling the playback of each layer individually, using your MIDI controller.
Move the loop markers by clicking and dragging with your mouse.
Try looping different areas of your sample loop to rearrange the loop and spark new ideas with your midi controller on the fly.
