Video: Introducing Beardyman’s Live Rig, The BEARDYTRON_5000 mkII
Live-looping visionary Beardyman just released the below brand-new video telling some of the story behind his new live rig, which is made up of multiple iPads, proprietary custom looping software, a synth, and a sampler. The video gives viewers a pretty good idea of not only what the rig is capable of, but the amount of pure-custom solutions that it took to make it possible.
Unfortunately, the video still doesn’t let us see exactly what his interface looks like and how his workflow is assembled. This leaves us with just one question: when’s the Beardytron iOS app coming out? If the interface and workflow is kept so closely guarded, there could very well be some kind of concern about a commercial entity trying to make their own ripoff version.
Beardyman is currently on tour around the US, headed to the UK next month. Learn more about him on his official site.
