Controlling Strymon Looper Using MC-6

Two part question:

  1. Is it possible to setup the MC6 to use the Strymon looper feature as its own setting? In other words I tap to select one pedal, tap to select the Strymon Timeline, tap to select the Timeline looper controls as its own separate setting. (hope that makes sense!)

  2. When setting up looping controls here’s what I’m looking to do:
    A = Rec. / Play
    B = Overdub
    C = Stop / Fade (double tap = hard stop)
    D = 1/2 Time feature
    E = Undo loop layer
    F = Reverse

Are these settings achievable? Specifically fading out, double tap = hard stop, and undo loop features.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Yes, I recently used my MC8 to do this exact setup for the Timeline looper. Just use the CC message codes in the timeline manual to setup the functions you mentioned. Works great.

Edit: I haven’t programmed the fade out yet, but that seems like a cool idea too.

I never used the TL Looper but since I got the MC8, I’m really enjoying it!
Everything you’re asking for is possible!

I programmed a bank only for the looper. Whenever I enter the bank, the MC8 switches to Looper Mode.
There I have buttons for Record / Play / Stop / Undo / Reverse / Vol 80% / Fade Out.

The Fade Out can be achieved with the Waveform Generator. I programmed a Sawtooth Down with 0 & 127 in the Controller Settings. In the preset setting you choose:
Type → CC Waveform Generator
Engine 1 (or the engine you programmed in the Controller settings)
Only Once
CC Number 98 (Looper Level)
2 Cylces (I chose a fade out of ca. 30 seconds)
