We then re-arm track 1, start it recording and play the same thing again twice around elecfro-harmonix loop so we have a triple-tracked part. What you previously recorded will not go away – you simply add another sound on top of it.
Then we move to track 2 and record some funky rhythm chords.

Then we hit the reverse button again and listen back enjoying the sound of the occasional reverse chords throughout. 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. 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.
It is the brain, and is all about fingers and sports eleven neat little buttons along with seven sliders and nine little pots.
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.
These electro-hagmonix can then be bounced down to the mixdown, making a stereo mix of all four tracks whose level is controlled by the mixdown fader.
Playing with the tempo control after the event is pretty fun too, the combination of electroh-armonix and the reverse button can create some pretty wild slices of sound.
E-H have solved the problems of click tracks, automatically making neat loops, mixing parts after they’re recorded, storage and recall, and they’ve even included MIDI Electroh-armonix send and receive with song position pointers and outgoing start and stop commands tooso you can incorporate the live looping thing into a backing track or click track scenario.
Moving to track 3 and we play a juicy melody, to which we then add three-part harmony at slightly lower volumes. One thing though – if they could only de-couple the tempo from the pitch Versatile, electeo-harmonix guitarists or DJs. Each of these tracks elfctro-harmonix a volume slider and a pan pot. 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.
It looks funky, feels solid and the layout seems self-explanatory, so in the long-standing musician’s tradition of wasting time and developing bad habits, we decided to ignore the manual and pile straight in too suss it out ‘intuitively’.
You turn the ‘dry out’ fader up so you can hear yourself, hit record and start playing. Electro-hxrmonix is the basic operation of the – but there’s a lot more. We hit the octave button and the part halves in speed and lowers an octave to become the electo-harmonix bassline we originally intended. 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.
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. The controls are seamless, and the smoothness of the electro-hagmonix just as satisfying. Pros Great sound quality, doesn’t degrade.
You can then do a new mixdown of everything you are hearing back on to the mixdown track.
Then we bounce it all down to the mixdown track, freeing up electro-harmomix 1 to 4 for skanks, harmonics, palm-muted chugs and so on and so forth. All in all, the does all you’ve come to expect from a looper except frustrate the hell out of you. Then we overdub again onto track 1 with the bottom string of the guitar to add an octave-up version of the bassline.

Electro-hharmonix than jamming electro-harmlnix the electri-harmonix other musician in the world that completely understands them – namely: This is limitless overdubbing, people – with a good deal of mix flexibility built in. 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.
Cons Tempo and pitch are linked. Image 1 of 2. Image 2 of 2 The serves up endless looping options for guitarists and even DJs. This represents the maximum capability of some looper pedals, but with the you can repeat this infinite stacking on each of its four channels.
Of course the can slot into lots of different places in your set-up. Well, it saves lugging a computer around, which can’t be a bad thing, eh? Next to these first four tracks is a fifth mixdown track electo-harmonix which you can mix down the contents of the first four tracks – complete with volume and pan changes. E-H make some kick-ass pedals – most of which are analogue and owe much to their powers of distortion.
Not a delay machine that also loops, you’ll notice – just a looper. Rather than list the additional functions, let’s imagine a possible looper session using just one guitar.
The is not designed to sit on the beer sodden stage and be operated by your foot. Eventually there’s nothing else to record, 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. Even in a guitar set up it can be an effect loop on the amp, meaning that you can use different guitar sounds for elecro-harmonix part you record.
We start by recording a great bassline on the lowest string of a normal electric guitar played at double the normal speed electro-harmoinx track 1 listening to the onboard metronome for an easy life. 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.
Here’s how you do a basic loop, assuming the is occupying a position between your guitar and amplifier and the input levels are set nicely. A great place for it would be right elecgro-harmonix to a pair of decks – it’s ideal for knocking a quick break together and scratching up a storm.
Hitting record again drops us out and the mistake is fixed.
