The Akai E2 Headrush Delay/Looper Pedal picks up where the award-winning E1 left off. This stompbox brings together 16-bit digital delay with times from 0.5ms to an astonishing 35 seconds, tape echo simulations with 4 separate heads, and a looping recorder in one convenient effects pedal.
In addition to offering digital and analog-type delay sounds, user-selectable delay options allow for maximum control of signal output. There are several realtime interval and level adjustment selections as well as feedback level for repeats.
Headrush can also simulate a 4-head analog tape echo machine and it is possible to set the spacing between the virtual heads to create complex multiple delays and repeats. The outputs of each of the virtual heads appear on individual outputs for ultimate flexibility when used with an external mixing console.
The looping mode allows you to record and overdub layer after layer of sound in real time making Headrush an unbelievable live performance tool.
Depending upon which mode is selected, the left switch controls the on/off and play/stop functions while the right switch sets the tap delay time or recording and overdub options. The LED display indicates which effect is in use and blinks in time showing the delay time selected.

looper started acting up two days after what started as great fun. hit record for first loop all was well...as soon as loop2 was recording it would automatically play back without even pressing the record button...it was horrid. returning this one and hoping for better luck next time otherwise it's BOSS all the way. boo.
I know this thing has a looper, and may be its main marketing point, but this is the smoothest sounding Tape Echo type delay I have ever heard. I just roll off the high frequency repeats, and tweak the Head Ratio and Gap and man I just cant put my jazzbox down! The tone is unbelievable. I bought it on a promotion at GC after hearing it used by one of my favorite youtube guitar dealer/reviewers. I have a huge pile of "dusty" delay pedals and multi effects, they are all history!
This pedal is ridclous i have been trying to find a decent looping/digital delay pedal for a while i looked at the boss looping pedal and a friend suggested this one and i was amazed how well built it is how well it plays you record stuff and delete instantly must buy!!
The Akai E2 Headrush is priced right, sounds great and is easy to use. Loops can be made on the fly quickly and erased quickly, making it a great tool for a gig. Even if you're not playing live, this is one of the most fun and useful pedals you can have.
