The mixdown track can be isolated from the tempo controller, so tracks 1 to 4 can actually be played back alongside the mixdown eectro-harmonix a different pitch and tempo, creating some pretty wild and crazy phasing and flanging effects along the way. This represents the maximum capability of some looper pedals, but with the you can repeat this infinite stacking on each of its four channels.

All in all, the does all you’ve come to expect from a looper except frustrate the hell out of you. 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. After doing something 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, start it recording and play the same thing again twice around the loop so we have a triple-tracked part. The controls are seamless, and the smoothness of the sound just as satisfying.


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. You turn the ‘dry out’ fader up so you can hear yourself, hit record and start playing.

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. E-H make some kick-ass pedals – most electro-harmonixx which are analogue and owe much to their powers electro-harjonix distortion.


Next to these first four tracks is a fifth mixdown track to which you can mix down the contents of the first four tracks – complete with volume and pan changes.

The previous sounds will not degrade, you simply pile them up. Eventually there’s nothing else to record, so we plug in our USB ellectro-harmonix 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.

Pros Great sound quality, doesn’t elecctro-harmonix. Image 1 of 2.

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. What you previously recorded will not go away – you simply add another sound on top of it.

2808 can then do a new mixdown of everything you are hearing back on to the mixdown track. Then we overdub again onto track 1 with the bottom string of the guitar to add an octave-up version of the bassline. 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. Rather than list the additional functions, let’s imagine a possible looper session using just one guitar.

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.

The is not designed to sit on the beer sodden stage and be operated by your foot. In use Within a couple of minutes we had a rocking loop of about ten guitarists going – some e,ectro-harmonix backwards and some playing at double speed! Then we hit the reverse button again and listen back enjoying the sound of the occasional reverse chords throughout.


It is the brain, and is all about fingers and sports eleven neat little buttons along with seven sliders and nine little pots.

This is the basic operation of the – but there’s a lot more. And obviously the can just sit over the mix bus of your desk or outputs of your DAW, so any sound you’re capable of making is fair game for a bit of electro-harnonix.

Moving to track 3 and we play a juicy melody, to which we then add three-part harmony at slightly lower volumes.

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. Then we head off to a gig with all that night’s loops stored on their own flash memory cards – some of which are actually full stereo CD quality backing tracks.

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.

You can also overdub back onto track 1 if you like. 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.
