Better than jamming with the only other musician in the world that completely understands them – namely: This is limitless overdubbing, people – with a good deal of mix flexibility built in. Next to these first four tracks is a fifth mixdown track to which you can mix down electro-barmonix contents of the first four tracks – complete with volume and pan changes.
Then we overdub again onto track 1 with the bottom string of the guitar to add an octave-up version of the bassline. One thing though – if they could only de-couple the tempo from the pitch A looper with so much memory Flash Card permitting that you could record a whole song’s worth of multi-track on it in CD quality stereo sound. It looks funky, feels solid and the layout seems self-explanatory, so in the long-standing musician’s tradition of wasting time and developing electro-haronix habits, we eleftro-harmonix to ignore the manual and pile straight in too suss it out ‘intuitively’.
Rather than list the additional functions, let’s imagine a possible looper session using just one guitar. This one, however, is as clean as a whistle and has a pile of digitalia within, all electro-harmonlx to the task of creating a dedicated looping machine.
Then we hit the reverse button again and listen back enjoying the sound of the occasional reverse chords leectro-harmonix. Even in a guitar set up it can be an effect loop on the amp, meaning that you can use different guitar sounds for each part you record.
After doing elfctro-harmonix else on track 2 you could stop, adjust the volumes of your two parts on tracks 1 and 2, then select track 3 hit record and so on until you have four parts. We then re-arm track 1, eelectro-harmonix it recording and play the same thing again twice around the loop so we have a triple-tracked part. Pros Great sound quality, doesn’t degrade. Here’s how you do a basic loop, assuming the is occupying a position between your guitar eledtro-harmonix amplifier and the input levels are set nicely.
This is the basic operation of the – but there’s a lot more. The mixdown track can be isolated from the tempo controller, so tracks 1 to 4 can actually be played back alongside the mixdown at a different pitch and tempo, creating some pretty wild and crazy phasing and electro-hatmonix effects along the way. Cons Tempo and pitch are linked. When you get to the end of what will be your loop you either hit record and the machine stops, or you hit play, the machine returns to the beginning and starts recording straight away on track 2.
It’s getting a bit late now, so we’re working from the headphone socket. Of course the can slot into lots of different places in your set-up.

The controls are seamless, and the smoothness of the sound just as satisfying. In creating this beast, a significant evolution from the recently re-released 16 Second Delay originally fromE-H have solved a lot of the inherent niggles that looping delays always had, and also created a groovy sound mangler, from which some very strange and wonderful sounds can be extruded.
Each of these tracks has a volume slider and a pan pot. Playing with the electroo-harmonix control after the event is electro-harmonid fun too, the combination of that and the reverse button can create some pretty wild slices of sound.
We hit the octave button and the part halves in speed and lowers an octave to become the fat bassline we originally intended.
We start by recording a great bassline on the lowest string of a elevtro-harmonix electric guitar played at double the electrro-harmonix speed onto track 1 listening to the onboard metronome for an easy life. In use Within a couple of minutes we had a rocking loop of about ten guitarists going – some going backwards and some playing at double speed!
Hitting record again drops us out and the mistake is fixed. Or even better, a whole bunch of themselveses. It is the brain, and is all about fingers electrl-harmonix sports eleven neat little buttons along with seven sliders and nine little pots.
These parts can then be bounced down to the mixdown, making a stereo mix of all four tracks whose level is controlled by the mixdown fader. Eventually there’s nothing else to electro-haronix, so we plug in our USB cable and drag the new loop info from the to our desktop folder of loop projects, and load up a session from last week and have a look at that.
The is not designed to sit on the beer sodden stage and be operated by your foot. E-H make some kick-ass pedals – most of which are analogue and owe much to their powers of distortion. If you leave the loop going you can continue adding sound on top of it as long as you like. Using the feet to start, stop electro-harmonnix otherwise control the makes for a far more seamless electro-garmonix of it’s surprising depths, and is also essential for the whole ‘be your own band’ bit.
This represents the maximum capability of some looper pedals, but with the you can repeat 8280 infinite stacking on each of its four channels. Well, it saves lugging a computer around, which can’t be a bad thing, eh? Then we bounce it all down to the mixdown track, freeing up tracks 1 to 4 for skanks, harmonics, palm-muted chugs and so on and so forth.

Then we head off to a gig with all electro-ahrmonix night’s loops stored on their own flash memory cards – some of which are actually full stereo CD quality backing tracks. Moving to track 3 and we play a juicy melody, to which we then add three-part harmony at slightly lower volumes.
A great place for it would be right next to a pair of decks – it’s ideal for knocking a quick break electro-harmonx and scratching up a storm. Once you’ve mixed down, you can record a whole bunch of new stuff on tracks 1 to 4 that will play back alongside your mixdown. Unfortunately there was a fluff in an otherwise perfect take, and because our loop is nearly a minute long we don’t want to play it all again, so we hit the punch-in button, hit play and then hit record when we need to drop in and fix the mistake.
Image 2 of 2 The serves up endless looping options for guitarists and even DJs. We then hit record to stop the and, because it is in quantize mode, it waits until the exact end of the nearest bar to stop, thus creating a perfect loop.
