Akai E2 Headrush Phrase Sampler Guitar Effects Pedal
E2 Headrushcombines delay, tape echo, and a looping recorder in a single pedal
Akai E2Headrush Delay/Looper Pedal picks up where the award-winning E1 left off. This stompbox brings together 16-bit digital delay with times from 0.5ms to an astonishing 35 seconds, tape echo simulations with 4 separate heads, and a looping recorder in one convenient effects pedal.
Headrush can also simulate a 4-head analog tape echo machine and it is possible to set the spacing between these "virtual: heads to create complex multiple delays and repeats. You can also set the decay characteristics of these heads. Furthermore, the outputs of each of these virtual heads appear on individual outputs for ultimate flexibility when used with an external mixing console.
The Looping Recorder mode allows you to record and overdub layer after layer of sound in real-time making the Headrush an unbelievable live performance tool.
Depending upon which mode is selected, the left footswitch controls the on/off and play/stop functions while the right footswitch sets the tap delay time or recording and overdub options. The LED display indicates which effect in use and blinks in time showing the delay time selected.
