The Electro-Harmonix 2880 offers the familiar control setup of a multitrack digital recorder plus flexible looping capabilities and track manipulation control. Multiple loops, in stereo and mono, can be pitch shifted, reversed and manipulated on four recording tracks. These four tracks can then be moved to two mixdown tracks, freeing them up to be reused. Flexible punch in/out is available on any recording track, allowing the musician to achieve "Looper Perfection" with the 2880. Complex multitrack loops may be created and overlaid in a performance situation with ease
The 288's non-compressed audio delivers 44.1 k 16 bit CD fidelity while providing audio storage of 480 seconds for each of the six available tracks when using a 256MB CF card. It comes with 128MB CF card and is comptable with cards up to 2GB. With external in/out midi clocking, it also provides automatic format conversion to Mac or PC via USB.

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics 2880 Super Multitrack Looper Guitar Effects Pedal:
Where to begin? This thing costs a chunk of change but, man, is it the coolest thing ever. I was initially swayed by the fact that it recorded loops at CD quality and had four different input adjustable tracks so you're not overdubbing on top of the same track, which sounds like poo poo. This was good enough for me to buy it. A really high quality practice tool with some bells and whistles. But here's the capper: I didn't know just how cool it is until I started messing around with the "constant tempo mixdown" mode and the possibilities of using the five tracks as delays. Unlimited possibilities. The flanging and pitch bending is way sweet, but the delay is unbelievable. You can do anything you have the imagination for. ANYTHING. I can't even begin to go into how to do it, just take the plunge, buy it and sit down and play with it for a few hours. This is the most exciting musical instrument I own, and I have some pretty cool stuff. I'm working on a quadraphonic flanged delay. If I just had three more amps ... Cons: Some people value settings and, I must admit, it would be nice to get back to some of tha places I've been. Sliders and knobs, that's the nature of the beast. Also: get the foot controller. Unless you have three arms, I don't even see a way for the machine to be effective without it.
