Title: Loop recording PSR EW410
Post by: webz on February 20, 2020, 11:36:03 AM
Hi, I know this topic of loop recording on Yamaha devices is a known topic but by browsing this forum and other ones, I never found answer to my questions.

I own an EW410 for a month now and I have been trying to use the song recording feature. What I would like to do is record a small loop section so that it plays endlessly. I thought that there would be a loop function working like a loop pedal : you record your first notes and it defines the length of the loop and then you can record other notes or instruments without the loop section getting longer (if that makes sense).
On the EW410, it is very difficult to pause the recording at the exact good timing for inch instruments on tracks 1, 2, 3 etc..
And even when I finally make it right, I use the function "Repeat A" so that it loops but there is a little break (like 0.2 secs) everytime the song loops which is very annoying.

Maybe I am doing it wrong or maybe it is just not possible to do what I want and I should just use my loop pedal but anyway if anyone here has answers that would be great.

I hope this post makes sense, it is a difficult problem to explain by writing especially because English is not my native language.

Thanks in advance !

This topic came up a few years ago, and unfortunately, as far as we could tell, there is no way to do a loop recording/playback on these keyboards.  Yes, the PSR-EW410 didn't exist back when this topic originally came up, but I am not aware of any new features added on the newer PSR-E-series keyboards that would allow this.  Like you have discovered, the one feature that would've seemed to allow a looped playback (the A-B playback) inserts a delay between loop iterations.

If anyone out there is discovered something that we've missed before, I'd love to hear about it.  But otherwise, I would guess that the only way to get any kind of usable loop recording and playback would be to use a digital audio workstation on a computer.
