Step on it! In the studio or in performance, the 2880 Foot Controller makes everything about the 2880 Super Multi-Track Looper easier and faster.
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.
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.
