HeadRush Looperboard Pedal
The HeadRush Looperboard is a 4-in/4-out looper with intelligent time-stretch and built-in effects. The looper pedal of your dreams is here. Introducing the most powerful and intuitive standalone looper pedal ever: the HeadRush Looperboard.
The HeadRush Looperboard was built with the express goal of pushing the art of looping live audio to the next level, so you can create like never before! The Looperboard leaves no room for compromise: It utilises a powerful quad-core DSP system that has been tailor-made from the ground up, combined with a 7-inch touch interface, and a generous set of audio inputs and outputs with premium circuitry for superb sound. Plus, there’s over eight hours of on-board recording time with intelligent time-stretch, premium onboard effects, external USB/SD loop storage, onboard USB audio interface, and so much more, all in a tour-ready steel chassis.
7-inch High Resolution Touch Display: A well-refined smart user interface with huge 7-inch display provides all of the dynamic feedback you need to stay focused on building your loop. You can touch, swipe, and drag-and-drop to customise the HeadRush Looperboard to your personal workflow.
Flawless Recording Quality: The HeadRush Looperboard features premium audio circuitry, so you can be sure that you’ll be capturing every nuance of your performance.
Massive Loop Storage: The HeadRush Looperboard can record and playback over eight hours of audio to its internal storage, and you can also export your loops for later use by using the SD and USB storage inputs.
Superior Loop Control: The 12 built-in footswitches enable you to quickly create and transform your loops and they feature individual RGB LEDs that dynamically update to provide useful feedback. You can record, overdub, play, undo/redo, reverse, transpose, bounce, and peel individual layers off in the reverse order they were added, fade, and clear your individual looper tracks all on-the-fly. You can also reverse, fade, multiply or divide length, and multiply or divide playback speed instantly for your whole loop at once.
Customisable Track Modes: Each loop contains four mono or stereo looper tracks and it can be run in any of five track modes (Fixed, Serial, Sync, Serial/Sync, and Free), so the HeadRush Looperboard accommodates any looping musician’s workflow.
Tap-Tempo With Intelligent Time Stretch: Stay in sync with other musicians on stage using the built-in intelligent time-stretch feature, which enables you to tap a footswitch to instantly change the tempo of your loop, while retaining pitch, without audio quality loss or glitchy pops and clicks.
Premium Built-In Effects: Featuring the most versatile, responsive, and best-sounding effects ever found in a standalone looper, the HeadRush Looperboard enables you to assign virtual effect racks directly to inputs or looper tracks. Each virtual effect rack is made of up of multiple individual effects and is purpose-designed for applications like vocals, guitar, lo-fi, percussion, and more. You can even assign up to four effect parameters to be controlled by an external expression pedal at once.
Built-in Backing Track Player: The convenient built-in backing track player enables you rewind, stop, play/pause, fast forward or change tempo of a backing track, completely independent of your current loop.
Packed with Audio I/O: The HeadRush Looperboard features four Combo XLR+1⁄4-inch inputs with dedicated gain controls and switchable +48V phantom power, two XLR outputs with switchable ground-lift, two 1⁄4-inch outputs switchable between amp or line level, one 1⁄4-inch stereo headphone output with dedicated volume knob, and one 1/8-inch stereo aux input with dedicated volume knob that routes auxiliary sources (phones, tablets, etc.) directly to the outputs.
Flexible Audio Routing: The intuitive audio routing setup page enables you to quickly route any of the four inputs, four looper tracks, backing track or click track to any of the four outputs and/or headphones output, giving you the ultimate flexibility to optimise your sound at any performance situation.
Sync With External MIDI Gear: The HeadRush Looperboard can receive MIDI time code for syncing with external drum machines, effects, recording setups and other MIDI-enabled devices.
Record Direct Via USB: The integrated USB audio interface enables you to directly record your mix to a Mac or PC computer.
Road Ready Steel Chassis: Reliably housed in a durable road-ready steel chassis, the HeadRush Looperboard is a convenient and compact way to bring everything you need for your gigs near or far.
