TC Electronic Unveils the WireTap Riff Recorder Pedal

TC Electronic WireTap Riff RecorderTC Electronic has introduced the WireTap Riff Recorder, a compact pedal that can record 8 hours of recording time stored in CD audio quality. Similar to the Ditto, the new pedal has pared down controls for “plug and play” capabilities.

Pressing the footswitch begins and ends the recording process while play, back, and next buttons allow you to listen back to what you’ve recorded. Holding the play button deletes the recording.

TC also created a free companion mobile app that allows you to sync and backup your recorded tracks. Each track can be named and tagged for cataloging.

The TC Electronic WireTap Riff Recorder records in 24-bit, 44.1kHz audio quality and runs on a standard 9-volt power adapter. It will be shipping July 1st in the U.S. with a street price of $99.99.

I bought this pedal last week. I connect it direct from the mixing desk to record band rehearsal. So easy, no fiddling with mics, level setting or recording endless banter in between the music. I have used other recording devices in the past, but this is so immediate and simple. I know it is intended for personal riff recording (which is also really useful), but I find, using it as a multi user recorder (which I can transfer songs on the app “brilliant) really, really useful.
It is one of those pedals you didn’t think you needed, but can’t imagine not having after you have used it.
