Are there any artists who are just guitar + loop pedal? Or perhaps guitar, drum machine, loop pedal? Or guitar + synth?
Let me check my collection. Nothing else comes to mind off the top of my head other than this. He's really melodramatic while playing though.
there are an assload of these type of artist. I see them at local venues far too often and far too often they are terrible
you're not doing anything unique, you're just a TEDx dickweed minus the discipline and talent
Beautiful, thick ambient music by a guitar and an analog delay system
So how do I actually get a full setup going?
Right now I have a shitty Ibanez, a $100 amp and a $90 basic loop pedal. I can't take off layers on this looping pedal, or add another layer with different (amp) textures. I have a cardiac condenser microphone, a laptop w/ garageband, an apc40, and a small budget. I also believe I have a preamp (gear I've gathered over the course of 5, 6 years)
you can use the version of ableton that came with your apc40 to do live looping and sampling. You will probably want to get anadditional foot controller though so you can trigger loops/samples by foot.
the easiest one to get ahold of and program is the line6 FBV shortboard mkii, it's USB out and send generic midi signals, which you can use the midi-learn feature in most DAWs with.
your regular looper pedal will probably be most useful as a second to last, or pre-delay looper, for making noise, etc.
additionally you'll need an interface to hook your laptop and loops/samples etc into your pedal chain.

Wait I just thought about this. Are you sure that you don't mean an echo? A tape loop plays the sound back an infinite number of time. An echo plays a sound then decays based on how much sound is fed back. Ekko 616 is a pretty good analog echo and it comes in a bright and dark variety.
the empress superdelay is great, probably the most complete delay pedal I've ever used. also, >>51936481 rec'd the Malekko Ekko 616, which is good too, if you need a good cheap one, I'd grab a used boss dd-7, it's still one of my favorite work horse delays.
That's really interesting. Do you have a link to the track? It sounds more like a production after effect than a pedal. I'm guessing he recorded a loop > put it on 2 tape recorders > played them back at different speeds into one recorder.
