Just getting my act together for the start of gigging with the new covers band and I've been working out ways to use my new JamMan Stereo sampler / looper. I originally got it so it could play the (prerecorded) rhythm part in one of the songs whilst I did the solo live. I'm the only guitarist and there would have been a big sonic hole when I switched to the solo otherwise.
Since then, I've been having all manner of ideas of how to use it to enhance our sound.
The most extreme of these being to prerecord an entire guitar track, therefore providing the missing guitarist for numbers that clearly have two guitars in them.
On a scale of 1(Sam Smith ranting about mimers) to 10(A Milli Vanilli Karaoke Tribute act), how 'cheating' would this be?
It would be me playing on the recording, just not live because I already had my hands full.
Does it even matter, and if so, where's the line between acceptable use of pre-rec and taking the piss ?
