As I mentioned in past posts, I’ve been really interested in loopers lately. Been really searching for the right looper for me. As I mentioned, I have the Boss RC-3, been messing with the Boss RC-30 lately. Started looking at the the Boss RC-300 and getting excited about the Pigtronix Infinity Looper. While doing my research I have been running across the Boomerang III Phrase Sampler – specifically on the audio quality of the looper. I’ve always been concerned with the switches on the unit (look flimsy, but hear they’re actually good) and that I haven’t seen any really examples I can relate with.. until now.
I just stumbled across Andrew Othling’s YouTube channel, and finally there are a few things I can relate with – he plays an electric, his board has some of the same pedals as mine, and he’s playing a style of ambient music that I’m very interested in playing. Now, I can really see/hear how the Boomerang III might do for me.
His board has some great pedals, and wanted to highlight those as well. Here were the effects used in this particular piece.
If you have some experience with various loopers including the Boomerang please let me know what you think by commenting below. Also be sure to check out Andrew’s YouTube channel for other great ambient songs!
