Looper & backing bassline tips for duo

Hi,

Starting/restarting a past duo, singer with me on guitar.

I'm wanting to add a looper (Line 6 M13) so I can do some leads, and simple bassline / drum machine (Alesis SR18) to fill out our sound.

Here is our Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/KrystalandDon

Can anyone give me some tips to get started with the looper and the drum machine?

Any suggestions of what you think would sound good added to any of our existing stuff would be great!

Thanks!

For anyone that might run across this, the M13 has midi clock/sync, but that only works for tap tempo effects (like echo, etc) and is completely unrelated to the looper.

The best I have been able to come up with for looping reliably to a drum machine (and not getting out of sync) is the Pigtronix Infinity.

At $400-$450 it's not a cheap option but seems to do what I need.



At 0:19 he stops recording on the loop.
At 0:35 he stops overdubbing on the loop.

1:28 he queue's up to play the first loop...and you see at about 1:29 or 1:30 it actually starts playing, in time with the drum machine. The light above the footswitch blinks a little at 1:28 to let you know it's queued.
