What is a Looper?
To start—a brief primer on looper effects: Essentially, a looper is a digital recorder that captures a section of your playing, and then repeats it over and over again. With multiple tracks, you can layer your playing to create amazing harmonies, give yourself a backing track for writing and playing, or even sculpt whole songs on the spot. Whatever precedes it in your signal chain will get recorded and played back through your amp or mixing console, including effects.
Capable of being used as a floor effects pedal or a table-top unit, the ruggedly built EHX 95000 goes far beyond just looping.
The Massive Storage of the 95000
With the supplied 16GB Micro SD card, it can record up to 375 minutes of unique sounds, plus 100 stereo loops. But it allows for cards up to 32GB (equating to 12 ½ hours of recording). With six mono tracks that feature level controls and L/R panning, and a seventh stereo mix down you can use for backing tracks or bouncing the other six, you can stack a massive array of sounds.
The Ins and Outs of it All
For music going in, the EHX 95000 looper houses stereo inputs with phantom power for microphones or instruments, with level controls for each. There's also an auxiliary input so you can use music and media from your own library.
For music going out, there are stereo outputs with pan and dry-output level controls, as well as a monitor output and headphone out to check your mix. Plus, with USB connectivity, you can store your creations on your computer and update the system software. And you can even attach an expression pedal to adjust the track volume on the fly.
Effects and Expandability of the Performance Loop Laboratory
With adjustable tempo, you can adjust the speed and pitch of your creations over a two-octave range. It also features a "reverse" function, which allows you to record a segment, and then flip it for a wild effect.
And if all of that somehow isn't enough, you can chain two 95000 units together with a single MIDI cable to give you 14 tracks of looping.
With all the easy-to-use technological horsepower of the Electro-Harmonix 95000 Loop Laboratory, your creative palette will grow dramatically. Get yourself one (or two) today, and explore a whole new world of possibilities.
