    Once again, you can record into a DAW, get your tracks as you want them, once recorded, send it to speakers (interface out as they have 1/4 cables) and jam away.

    Ah! Gottcha! Backing tracks for drums. Most folks are making DRUM backing tracks!

    I am convinced you will still find an AI and computer the easiest way to do this. On problem I can see, conventional monitor speakers will not be nearly loud enough to compete with a live kit (unless you can afford something VERY expensive!) So, you will need to route the tracks to a guitar and bass amp and that really needs a 're-amp' kit but there are workarounds. Can you solder mayhap?

    A thought occurs, you might, in THIS particular instance be better off buying a USB mixer but get a 24 bit later generation one. The A&H zed i8 is well thought of.

    Dave.

    I am convinced he won't listen to reason.

    Just to get you away from trying to use two loopers to do this - 1) the chances are that the loopers will not match entirely on internal clock, so will drift over time; 2) getting the start/stop perfect on 2 loopers requires tons of practice.

    Looping is a "new" thing and a lot of the homerecr's here ( like me) are not "new" you are asking about looping at a recording site so you are going to get push back to use recorded backing tracks as opposed to those new dang fangled looper thingy majigs...

    I am intrigued by the looper thing and it is becoming a "thing" ED Sheran is a perfect example of taking looping waaaaaay further than most of us old timers ever thought it could be taken...If we go back to Dark Horse Cherry Tree ...I'd of thought that was taking it way far...Ed goes about a thousand miles deeper...so in learning about ED and his set up I found there are looper forums and blogs..Like This one and This One and here's a great article on the subject....good luck with the looping thing ...it looks like it can be a lot of fun and entertaining if you can walk and chew bubble gum at the same time......

    Once the backing tracks are recorded you could put them on an iPod and play them back from that into the two amps. Might want a couple of reamping boxes, or it might work okay straight into the amps.

    I ended up buying this yesterday, and works exactly as I wanted!

    Guitar -> Input A, Output A -> Guitar Amp
    Bass -> Input B, Output B -> Bass Amp

    Records up to 12 minutes of loops (up to 6 minutes per guitar part and bass part, which is more than enough)..

    And, I can then take the output and connect them to an audio interface (L/R Input) and save them onto a computer. Cool beans.
