Show full description »

The Electro-Harmonix 2880 offers the familiar control setup of a multitrack digital recorder while adding flexible looping capabilities and track manipulation control. Multiple loops, in stereo and mono, can be pitch shifted, reversed and manipulated on four recording tracks. These four tracks can then be moved to two mixdown tracks, freeing them up to be reused. Flexible punch in/out is available on any recording track, allowing the musician to achieve "Looper Perfection" with the 2880.

The 2880’s non-compressed audio utilizes a 44.1 k 16 bit CD fidelity while providing audio storage of 480 seconds for each of the six available tracks when using a 256 megabyte card (expandable to 2 gigabytes). With external in/out midi clocking, it also provides automatic format conversion to Mac or PC via USB.

Complex multitrack loops may be created and overlaid in a performance situation with ease. With more tracks, more control and more power, the 2880 is Looping Heaven.
