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.
I’ve mentioned Reggie Watts in the past. He is a artist and comedian that is doing some great things with loops, and his act showcases that talent in real time. I definitely respect what he does. He was on Conan two nights ago and here is the video. Enjoy!
Reggie Watts is from Montana. Reggie Watts does some amazing things with voice and loops. Reggie Watts performed on my birthday… in Montana.. and yet I still missed it. I am pissed that I missed Reggie Watts.
A few months ago I posted about Reggie Watts (who is from my home state) and does some fun things with loops. Well, I just found out he’s in a commercial for DieHard batteries!
He use to primarily use the Line 6 DL 4 delay for loops, but I’ve been seeing him use a second unit for his main loop building. I took a quick still from the above video. Anyone know what the unit is to the left of the DL 4?
Last week I stumbled across a video of Matt Stevens (@mattstevensloop) working the Line 6 DL 4 delay. This week I wanted to talk about Reggie Watts (@reggiewatts). Now, this is a guy I wish I had a chance to meet. We actually are from the same home state, and I went to his high school, but I think I am a couple of years older than him. Anyways, he’s doing some great things with loop pedals, including the Line 6 DL4 as well.
Here is a super cool video! Hope you enjoy it! Hey Reggie, if you’re reading this.. nice shirt!
