Electro-Harmonix is expanding their looper lineup with the 22500, a dual stereo looper that combines a compact footprint with an intuitive user interface. The pedal allows each uncompressed audio track to be played in parallel or series to allow for layering harmonies or creating different sections of a song.
Each loop has its own footswitch that engages recording and togges between playback and overdubbing. A third footswitch functions as either a master Stop, Tap Tempo, or a Rhythm Start/Stop switch. Both loops also have individual level control knobs as well as Reverse and Octave buttons for further creative control. The 22500 has a Mode knob to access 100 loop banks, control rhythm options and operation functions, quantizing functions, and more. Finally, the Rhythm button engages a built-in drum loop.
Besides 1/4-inch inputs, the left/mono input can be switched to an XLR mic input with selectable phantom power and a separate mic gain knob. The 22500 records to SDHC memory cards and support 4GB to 32GB cards. It includes an 8GB memory card that holds up to 12 hours of recording time, while a USB port enables backup/restore functions to a PC or Mac.
The Electro-Harmonix 22500 Dual Stereo Looper is available now with a list price of $359.97.
