Is there a midi sequencer that can:
- load a midi file,
- loop a (predefined) section (range of measures) of the song
- switch to a different section in the song at the end of a measure, triggered by a midi event (foot pedal)
I like to use this as as stand-alone, portable (battery powered) acompaniment box for my piano lessons.
The midi file will have several variants of tracks for e.g. bass, drums, solo or voice, second instrument.
Preferrably each of the tracks could be looped independantly: e.g. just a 4 bar drum line can be repreated over any range.
Usage would be: start the intro, loop over section A, until the pedal was hit, switch to a bridge, then loop section B, until pedal press …
When defining shorter section, it’s great to practice difficult parts, or learn to play faster.
