Stay in the loop! The 2880 offers the familiar controls of a multi-track digital recorder while adding continuous stereo and mono looping with track control. Complex multi-track loops may be created and overlaid in a performance situation with ease. With more tracks, more control and more power, the 2880 takes you to "looping heaven."

Comedian/musician Reggie Watts wows the audience on the Conan O’Brien Show (2/16/11). When combined with his formidable voice, Reggie’s well-traveled Electro-Harmonix 2880 Looper is the perfect tool for creating on-the-spot mayhem and magic! For more on Reggie go to http://www.reggiewatts.com
The undulating textures of the Deluxe Electric Mistress provide the true sweeping element to this Robert Wood homage to the mother of all flangers. The EH 2880 super multi-track looper captures the moment in its portable multitrack recorder mode.
“Hilarious, brilliant and unpredictable” are three words that have been used to describe comedian, vocalist, performance artist, Reggie Watts. Reggie recently visited Mike Matthews and the Electro-Harmonix crew in NYC. The performer relies on his EH 2880 Stereo Multi-Track Looperâ€”it’s the core of his rigâ€”and put on an impromptu show in the EH Lab.
Thanks to Matt Hill of the Floozies for sending us this live looping remix of Michael Jackson's "Thriller."
Mike notes: "Nothing is pre-recorded, everything is performed live and looped with the EHX 2880. It showcases pretty much everything you can do with the 2880 - reverse, tempo change, multiple tracks cutting in and out, mixdown, punch in, overdub, and you can see the unit throughout the whole video."
So how did YOU learn to love music? Come tell your story over in the EHX Forums. We got to thinking about this question thanks to the following two YouTube videos. The first is of Jimmy Maguire with his son Noah -- we discovered this video because Jimmy is playing through an LPB-1:
The second video is of YouTuber sitonka's daughter Miah Rose laying down loops on her dad's 2880:
Thanks to Nir Yaniv and King Cano for sharing this 2880 live looping video. Nir adds: "The 'Beat This!' video was recorded live. You can even see that behind us there's a computer screen with Logic opened and recording. And let me take this opportunity to thank you and the others in EHX - that looper changed my loopin' life."
For more info, see the King and Nir site as well as Nir's solo site VocalMan (in addition to the 2880, Nir also uses an Octave Multiplexer).
Todd Boston is an Acoustic Ambient multi-instrumentalist, and longtime 2880 Stereo Multi-Track Looper user. Describing the 2880, Todd notes, "I love it! It is a great looper that serves my needs and desires for a simple user friendly interface, I love the intuitive blenders and pan settings for each channel."
In the clip below ("Harmony") Todd is joined by partner Ramesh Kannan:
I do all the triggers using the foot controller with my right leg. Here is the general time line for Harmony:
0:50 - trigger recording for first loop (Guitar + Tabla)
2:00 - press stop on foot switch to stop recording of first loop, interlude
2:11 - press the record button which triggers both playback of first loop plus the recording of second loop (Lead Guitar + Udu drum)
3:17 - playback of second loop continues, we are playing live, no recording happening for rest of song (Flute + Cajon) Format for this song was recording two loops and playing live over top which made it sound like a six piece
The loops for this song are long so triggering in and out and being on the mark is key for composition. Some loops we do as 8, 16, or 32 bars, some we do as whole sections of the song (Harmony) which we record part A and B and loop them.
