I have succeeded in programing all the Bank 0 locations to be Notes, and have started to "learn" SooperLooper to respond.
To other beginners: The manual for this is confusing and poorly written and difficult to understand, but I think it is accurate. The single most difficult thing for me was learning how to tell where I was in the programming sequence. My early attempts often ending in power off - start again.
Finally, when I began talking to myself in earnest ( a clear an indication that the Right Brain knows things that the Left does not) I would recite:
I want to program location (bank,key_num) (change bank, press key)Watching the "In The Mix" Video was very helpful, as were reassurance from this group that it is possible to program the damn thing, all are very much appreciated.
I think this is impossible without a monitor on your computer - Midisnoop worked for me on Linux with QjackCTL
I also recommend using a known good device (like a midi keyboard) to be sure that your cables , connections and computer software are all working before you start.
Don't forget to change the channel of "CNT 1" to prevent "Tap-Tempo" messages from going to your midi channel of interest.
