Frequently asked questions

FAQ

What type of loop station will Jeremy be demonstrating and performing with?

In this masterclass, Jeremy will exclusively be using BOSS loop stations, namely the RC-30, the RC-50 (now replaced by the RC-300) and the RC-505.

He considers these to be the most ergonomic plug’n’play units for percussionists.

For instance, they have a microphone input with phantom power, which is not the case for many loop stations. Also, Boss loop stations are used around the world, allowing people everywhere to share advice and experience.
FAQ

I don’t have the same loop station as Jeremy. Is this course still for me?

Though a few buttons and features may be different on your loop station, almost all loop stations have similar characteristics and workflow, and you should be able to follow the entire course.

As most of the operations demonstrated and described are the same on all loopers, Jeremy’s masterclass will give you a deeper understanding of how to refine your sound and build beautiful tracks.
FAQ

What gear is required to follow this masterclass?

To follow this course you will need the following equipment:

Essential:

  • A loop station with an XLR (microphone) input.
  • A decent quality microphone of any brand, with a stand.
  • An XLR (microphone) cable.
  • A pair of headphones or an amplifier to connect to your loop station’s output.

Recommended:

  • Because there is a section on sculpting your instruments with EQ (equalization), a mixer desk with EQs on each channel is desirable. 
  • Because there is a section about FX (effects), owning pedals (octaver, delay, reverb, etc.) is also desirable, especially if they are similar to Jeremy’s. (Note that you will receive a full list of Jeremy’s gear as part of the course.)

Optional:

  • Additional instruments other than your handpan (e.g. cajon, keyboard, jaw harp, or any other instrument).

Reading this article will help you choose equipment according to your budget.

FAQ

What if I’m missing some of the gear listed above?

Are you missing essential gear?

This course will inspire and guide you in the purchase of your first looping equipment.

  • Reading this article will help you choose equipment according to your budget.
  • When you enroll in the course, you will access the full list of equipment used in the masterclass. Why not treat yourself to some new gear in the near future and come back afterwards to enjoy the course in its fullest?

Are you missing recommended or optional gear?

  • Remember that this is a broad and insightful sound/effects/looping course with lots for any musician to take away, whether you have a basic or advanced setup. It was designed with the knowledge that many of the participants will not own the same equipment as Jeremy.
  • Because when you enroll in the course you get lifelong access to Jeremy’s Masterclass, you can start by learning from his experience and gaining inspiration. Later on, when you are able to purchase new gear, you will be able to come back to specific sections and put them into practice. To help you with this, you will receive a full list of Jeremy’s gear as part of the course.
