What is this for?
Load some audio into ten loopers, and the pedal will do the hard job of choosing what loop plays. You just tell it when to play any loop and when to change that loop.
Pretty cool. Put some chords in to make a random chord selector for inspiration. Put some notes in for a melody maker. Put anything in for cool things.
Your right footswitch is a latching footswitch that will start and stop recording for each loop. After stopping recording, it will automatically advance to the next loop, and will cycle back around from looper 10 to looper 1, giving you the ability to overwrite on the fly (no overdubs here, folks). You’ll see which loop is recording by seeing the big red record symbol and one of 10 colored lights on the second-most-outer columns.
Your left footswitch puts the looper into play mode. This allows for looped audio and dry signal to pass. You’ll see which loop is playing by the colored lights on the outer-most column while the play symbol is present.
Your middle footswitch switches which looper is active.
If you’ve got an expression pedal plugged in, you have a bonus control! At minimum/unplugged, the loopers will behave as normal. However, once you increase the value on expression, you gain a higher probability of a random octave up/double speed controller to activate. At full, I think it’s about a 50/50 chance it will activate at any given time. This gives you some further variation and unpredictability.
So there’s that. Let’s talk points of modification interest.
Page 1, button E. This is the right footswitch. You may want to change this to be momentary for quicker grabbing of loops.
Pages 2 and 3 contain all the loopers. If you want to add reverse or make a few of them different speeds or something, do it.
Page 5, connections between F and N. This is your probability for octave up at expression pedal maximum. Increase that for more likely to do an octave up at maximum.
Page 5, I and K. These are random LFO speeds for your probability for octave up. Increase these if you want quicker changes.
