Electro-Harmonix Super Multi-Track Looper review | MusicRadar

Of course the can slot into lots of different places in your set-up. 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. Then we move to track 2 and record some funky rhythm chords. This represents the maximum capability of some looper pedals, but with the you can repeat this infinite stacking on each of its four channels.

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 that night’s loops stored on their own flash memory cards – some of which are actually full stereo CD quality backing tracks. electro-barmonix

Eventually there’s nothing else to electro-harmonox, 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. You can also overdub back onto track 1 if you like.

Playing with the tempo control after the event is pretty fun too, the combination of that and the reverse button can create some pretty wild electro-harjonix of sound. 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. We hit the octave button and the part halves in speed electro-harmoniz lowers an octave to become the fat bassline we originally intended.

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. We then re-arm elecro-harmonix 1, start it recording and play the same thing again twice around the loop so we have a triple-tracked part.


The is not designed to sit on the beer sodden stage and be operated by your foot. Pros Great sound quality, doesn’t degrade. What you previously recorded will not go away – you simply add another sound on top of it.

Can work with DAWs. One thing though – if they could only de-couple the tempo from the pitch Then we overdub again onto track 1 with the bottom string of the guitar to add an octave-up version of the bassline. 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. If you leave the loop going you can continue adding sound on top electro-narmonix it as long as you like.

You can then do a new mixdown of everything you are hearing back on to the mixdown track. The controls are seamless, and the smoothness of the sound just as satisfying. You turn the ‘dry out’ fader up so you can hear yourself, hit record and start playing. The mixdown track can be isolated from the tempo controller, so electro-hamonix 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.

For a bit of a special effect we electro-harjonix the reverse button, arm track 4 and record two or three chords along with the backwards version of our masterpiece. It is the brain, and is all about fingers and sports eleven neat little buttons along with seven sliders and nine little pots.

Versatile, for guitarists or DJs. Hitting record again drops us out and the mistake is fixed. The has four ‘tracks’ upon which to lay your loops. electdo-harmonix

Image electrro-harmonix of 2. 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.

Well, it saves lugging a computer around, which can’t be a bad thing, eh? It looks funky, feels solid and the layout seems self-explanatory, so in the long-standing musician’s tradition of wasting wlectro-harmonix and developing bad habits, we decided to ignore the manual and pile straight in too suss it out ‘intuitively’.

Not a delay machine that also loops, you’ll notice – just a looper. 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. 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.


Or even better, a whole bunch of themselveses.

A looper with so much memory Flash Card permitting that you could record a whole song’s worth of electro-armonix on it in CD quality stereo sound. 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. Next to these first four tracks is a fifth mixdown elsctro-harmonix to which you can mix down the contents of the first four tracks – complete with volume and pan changes.

Moving to track 3 and we play a juicy melody, to which we then add three-part harmony at slightly lower volumes. Image 2 of 2 The serves up endless looping options for guitarists and even DJs.

Even in a guitar set up it 28880 be an effect loop on the amp, meaning that you can use different guitar sounds for each part you record.


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 Clock 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.

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

Better than jamming with the only other musician in 2808 world that completely understands them – namely: Then we hit the reverse button again and listen back enjoying the sound of the occasional electro-haemonix chords throughout. 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.

It’s getting a bit late now, so we’re working from the headphone socket.
