To keep the music going there are no accessories more versatile than looper and sampler effects pedals. Allowing you to record rhythm loops as you play, and play them back as you continue jamming, these pedals add layers to you music, helping you effortlessly create uniquely songs and sounds. If you’ve never used one of these pedals, you are definitely missing out.
The big question though is how complicated are you looking to get with your loops and samples? From simple single pedals to full stations, the selection here has you covered. Single pedals don’t always mean less features though. Just take a look at the Boss RC-3 Loop Station. Featuring high-powered digital signal processing, three hours of recording, a selection of onboard rhythms and USB 2.0 connectivity, this powerful pedal lets you manipulate your music like never before. If you’re looking for even more features and effects, consider the RC-300 Loop Station, also from Boss. With triple-stereo looping, an expanded pedalboard, onboard FX, preloaded audio and so much more, this is Boss’ flagship looper pedal station for a reason.
Looking for a unique look to go with your unique sound? There are even options to help on that side of things as well. Check out the LO-FI Loop Junky Custom Painted from ZVex. Designed to give you a look as bold as the music you make, it features an ultra-low fidelity letting your guitar hiss and moan, as well as a painted cover with a stag flaunting oversized horns that dance between the dials. Filled with attitude, you won’t find a pedal a more defiant.
Perfect for one-man performers and full band settings alike, looper and sample effect pedals were made to work as well in the studio as they do on stage. Once you find the pedal that gives you everything you need, you’ll be well on your way to making music and sounds you never thought possible.
