Enormous looping potential
The EHX 720 has substantial looping potential. It gives you access to 720 seconds of quality uncompressed audio at twenty-four bit conversion as well as a Sample Rate of 44.1 kHz.
The loops are divided into ten distinct loops which can be accessed through a three-button footswitch or the Loop Knob. Since no limit is placed on overdubbing, you can create and/or experiment with anything, for as long as you want to.
Powerful onboard features
The pedal offers numerous options for creating new sounds. For instance, you can get a wide sonic-spectrum by simply making use of the stereo inputs and outputs. Additionally, stereo inputs work perfectly in case you want to loop with 2 instruments at the same time.
To make sure that your target audience only hears what you’d like them to, make use of the undo and redo footswitch.
Even though the EHX 720 Stereo-Looper Pedal is powerful, you still have absolute control over all the features. If you’d like to record, redo, overdub or undo a performance, just use the 2 footswitches available on the pedal’s face. Loop knob will give you access to the device’s cycles and modes via the 10-loop locations.
This is a cream of the crop looper pedal and we give it a 5 star rating
