I love my state of Montana, and I love it when guys from this state make some noise. Reggie Watts is one of those artists that is doing some great things and as a fellow Montanan, I’m super proud of his accomplishments! If you have not heard of Reggie Watts… um, you need to check him out, like now.
Reggie is known for using various loops to create some amazing performances. I remember seeing him use Line 6 DL4s for a while, then he moved on to a EHX 2880 looper, but this morning I saw a fantastic demo by him on the new Electro-Harmonix 45000 Multi-Track. This really shows what the unit is all about, and obviously, some outrageous things could be achieved with guitar/bass/keys as well.
Here is the official description of the EHX 45000 Multi-Track Looper:
Building on EHX’s looper legacy, the 45000 combines the familiar controls of a multi-track digital recorder with state-of-the-art features making it possible to create complex multi-track loops quickly and easily. Each loop has four mono tracks and one stereo mixdown track. The 45000 records non-compressed, 44.1kHz/16-bit CD quality audio direct to a removable SDHC card (4 to 32GB). Each card holds up to 100 individual loops accessed with the optional 45000 Foot Controller (sold separately). Loop speed is adjustable over a two octave range, and reverse recording and playback are also possible. For extra convenience, a built-in metronome to a separate Monitor Out and a Headphone Out are also included.
