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.

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. 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.

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, the combination of that and the reverse button can create some pretty wild slices of sound. 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, so we hit the punch-in button, hit play and then hit record when we need to drop in and fix the mistake. A looper with so much memory Flash Card permitting that you could record a whole song’s worth of multi-track on it in CD quality stereo sound.
Cons Tempo and pitch are linked. If you leave the loop going you can continue adding sound on top of it as long as 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. 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.
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. 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.
The previous sounds will not degrade, you simply pile them up. Moving to track 3 and we play a juicy melody, to which we then add three-part harmony at slightly lower volumes.
Pros Great sound quality, doesn’t degrade.

You can also overdub back onto track 1 if you like. You can then do a new mixdown of everything you are hearing back on to the mixdown track.

Rather than list the additional functions, let’s imagine a possible looper session using just one guitar. 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.
Electro-Harmonix Super Multi-Track Looper review | MusicRadar
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 elfctro-harmonix 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.
It is the brain, and is all about fingers and sports eleven neat little buttons along with seven sliders and nine little pots.
The controls are seamless, and the smoothness of the sound just as satisfying. E-H make some kick-ass pedals – most dlectro-harmonix which are analogue and owe much to their powers eelectro-harmonix distortion. 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. Of course the can slot into lots of different places in your set-up.
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 looping.
What you previously recorded will not go away – you simply add another sound on top of it. 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. Then we move to track 2 and record some funky rhythm chords.
Or even better, a whole bunch of themselveses. This is the basic operation of the – but there’s a lot more.
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 has four ‘tracks’ upon which to lay your loops. 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!
