Using the feet to start, stop and otherwise control the makes for a far more seamless investigation of it’s surprising depths, and is also essential for the whole ‘be your own band’ bit. 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 electro-harmnoix strange and wonderful sounds can be extruded.

This is the basic operation of the – but there’s a lot more. Image 2 of 2 The serves eleectro-harmonix endless looping options for guitarists and even DJs.
Then we head off to a gig with all that night’s loops stored on their own flash memory ellectro-harmonix – some of which are actually full stereo CD quality backing tracks. It looks funky, feels solid and the layout seems self-explanatory, so in the long-standing musician’s tradition of wasting elwctro-harmonix and developing bad habits, we decided to ignore the manual and pile straight in too suss it out ‘intuitively’.
What you previously recorded will not go away – you simply add another sound on top of it. Cons Tempo and pitch are linked. 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, electtro-harmonix we hit the punch-in button, hit play and then hit record when we need to drop in and fix the mistake.
We then electro–harmonix track 1, start it recording and play the same thing again twice around the loop so we have a triple-tracked part. You can then do a new mixdown of everything you are hearing back on to the mixdown track. 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.
Hitting record again drops us electtro-harmonix and the mistake is fixed. 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.
It is the brain, and is all about fingers and sports eleven neat little buttons along with seven sliders and nine little pots. A great place for it would be right next to a pair of decks – it’s ideal for knocking a quick break together and scratching up a storm.
We start by recording a great bassline on the lowest string of a normal electric guitar played at double the normal speed onto track 1 listening to the onboard metronome for an easy life. The has four ‘tracks’ elector-harmonix which to lay your loops.
Not a delay machine that also loops, you’ll notice – just a looper. The is not designed to sit on the beer sodden stage and be operated by your foot.
You turn the ‘dry out’ fader up so you can hear yourself, hit record and start playing. The previous sounds will not degrade, you simply pile them up. Then we hit the electro-harnonix button again and listen back enjoying the sound of the occasional reverse chords throughout. We hit the octave button and the part halves in speed and lowers an octave to become the fat bassline we originally intended. If you leave the loop going you can continue adding sound on top of it as long as you like.
The controls are seamless, and the smoothness of the sound just as satisfying. Moving to track 3 and we play a juicy melody, to which we then add three-part harmony at slightly lower volumes. Of course the can slot into lots dlectro-harmonix different places in your set-up.
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. Eventually there’s nothing else to record, so we plug in our USB cable and drag the new loop info from the electro-narmonix our desktop folder of loop projects, and load up a session from last week and have a look at that.
Then we overdub again onto track 1 with the elextro-harmonix string of the guitar to add an octave-up version of the bassline.

For a bit of a special effect we press the reverse button, arm track 4 and record two or three chords along with the backwards version of our masterpiece. This one, however, is as clean as a whistle and has a pile of digitalia within, all bent to the task of creating a dedicated looping machine. You can also overdub back onto track 1 if you like. This represents the maximum capability of some looper pedals, but with the you can repeat this infinite stacking on each of its four channels.
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!
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 flanging effects along the way.
Playing with the tempo control after the event is pretty fun too, 22880 combination of that and the reverse button can create some pretty wild slices of sound.
Each of these tracks has a electro-harmonic slider and a pan pot.
