Loopers

Creating sound art is no problem with a looper, but it won't do your creative work for you!

Loopers

Welcome to our online guide to loop stations. Loopers tend to be viewed with suspicion by some, while others have always managed to create quite nifty work with these little boxes.

This may illustrate the typical "sceptical" position:

  • loop effects are for only for musicians who can find no mates to play with.

This is nonsense, of course, the opposite is true:

  • musicians who know how to properly work their loop stations do not need anyone else to accompany them; they deliver more than enough on their own.

Another prejudice:

  • the only thing musicians who use loopers a lot create is basically ambience-y clouds of sound.

Properly understood, loopers or loop stations should rather be considered an intermediate step between an effect, and instrument, and a sequencer, since they allow the loopmaster to produce musical works of art of great creativity which they would otherwise have to piece together painfully at the computer. This is an equally false preconception. Just watch and listen to the wizardry that beat boxers such as "Beardyman" or multi-instrumentalists like "Ricoloop" are capable of ynd you can imagine the raw power of this instrument.

In this guide, we will focus on the "classic" loopers and loop stations, which under no circumstances should be confused with MIDI loopers or FX loopers, which are used to loop external effects devices.

On the following pages, we will introduce you to the function and use of loopers. Maybe we can motivate you to try out one of those loopers yourself. Our customer representatives in the guitar department will be more than happy to help you choose the right looper for you.

Enjoy reading the guide!
