Loopers Archives - Pedal of the Day

Loopers


16-bit Digital Delay. Tape echo emulation. Looper. Tap Tempo. Twenty-three point eight (that’s right, 23.8) seconds of delay time. These are all options we seek, for a variety of different pedals, right? There’s no way these could ALL be present in just one, sweet, blue-mixed-with-purple pedal, could there? As today’s pedal, the E2 HeadRush from Akai Professional, will show you, it IS possible…and so much more,...

All-in-one pedals can be great, and they can be terrible, as anyone who has ever tried a few out can attest to. The good ones, though, when they’re good, they are GOOOOD. Where to begin with a pedal like this, with so many options, tones, squeaks, sound and delights? With a long-standing reputation of making some of the finest musical gear around, the folks at Eventide have one-upped even themselves at this point, and released...

As a self taught guitar player, I’ve been trying to find ways to get some practice playing along to a rhythm track. CD’s, prerecorded backing tracks, loopers, you name it, I’ve tried it. They get old pretty quick, or my playing skill isn’t good enough. I started hearing about the Trio a few months ago and was pretty curious. I got the chance to get a demo of the pedal and was hooked.This thing is super user...

As much as I love my TimeLine Delay from Strymon, I find the banking system to be a little bit difficult at times. Having to hit 2 switches at once to go up or down scrolling through presets is not my favorite part about that pedal…well, I must not be the only one, because Strymon has heard our complaints and come up with an elegant, easy-to-use and multi-functional solution: the MutliSwitch. Compatible with the TimeLine, BigSky...

Loopers. I mean, they’re just so much fun to use, and can be extremely beneficial as a learning and practicing tool. The Phrase Sampler + is my favorite – I know, it’s old, and “outdated”, and doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that some of the newer loopers do, but it is just perfect for my setup. 5 easy-tap buttons that are labeled telling you exactly what each one does, so there’s no...

Not every guitar player uses a looper, but for those that do, it’s an essential ingredient in their setup. They can also tend to be quite large, sometimes overly complicated and difficult to figure out how to use, much less be reliable during a show. That’s where Digitech comes in, with the JamMan Express XT Looper pedal. One knob to control the output volume. That’s it. One tap of your foot records. The next tap...

The Ditto Looper from TC Electronic is a 1 knob, live musician-friendly pedal! It has a simple configuration of a playback volume knob to set how loud you want your loop to be. Then it has a soft touch on/off switch, which is brilliant because most looping pedals have a standard stomp switch which does produce a significant amount of noise which if you have a delay on that pop of the pedal can be heard in your loop. So the soft touch...
