Although it’s not an instrument at first sight, musicians use these devices as such in a very creative way. At one point here were problems with Loopers for a long time. These were either very limited in their recording time, difficult use or often contains only basic features. The engineers of Electro-Harmonix has known this problem and introduced for this year’s NAMM a massive new looper. The 95000 Performance Loop Laboratory is the most advanced looper to date that features six mono tracks and one stereo mix down track per loop. This allows you to record up to 375 minutes and 100 loops with a standard 16GB micro SD card. On top, you can switch very easy between different loops.
The new EHX 9500 Looper is not only an interesting instrument for guitarists but also for experimental musicians who want to combine different sounds very quickly. Here I think of field recordings as well as soundscapes / drones music.
