The Electro-Harmonix 2880 was a breath of fresh air for many loopers. Its multi-track recorder like design made the entire thing very intuitive, and that same thread of user-friendly design has survived with the updated model. The new looper, the 45000, looks very similar to the older incarnation, but does it have more to offer? With multi-track looping, a stereo Mix Down track and an included 4GB memory card (good for over two hours of recording), the 45000 could be the next big thing in looping.
The 2880’s instantly recognisable layout provides you a degree of familiarity, and even if you have never used a multi-track recorder before, the reason it’s layout is used so widely is because it’s so simple. It’s got an impressive resume too, it gives you CD-quality sound, in stereo or mono, lets you connect up to your computer to store loops, and will even help you keep your loops in time if you want it to.
