True bypass loopers? Anyone want to make me one?

Post by Veldar » 07 Mar 2016, 22:08

I'm after a 4 channel looper to better use the full space of my Pedaltrain pro, however all the Aussie companies I saw offering the strips don't offer/make a loop that allows trails from reverb/delays.

I have my Zoom CDR with a Jeff Caxide patch that I use a lot & if the reverb was cut off after I turned it off it would kill the cool transition I have going with it :)

So if anyone knows a builder in Aus that could make one for me, or if you're interested please let me know.

Cheers, Sam.

if it allows trails from reverbs and delays.... it would no longer be true bypass :)

I don't have the setup to make things professionally at the moment, still finding my feet.

Yes, you have to tie the looper's output to the pedal's output, making it no longer true bypass. You could run a separate switch to change between the two settings, however. Any pedal maker worthy of the name could easily do the mod for you if you ask. I hear good things about Loopi.

Can't argue with facts :)

I was basically after a 4 looper pedal with the last loop allowing trails, Loopi seem like they wouldn't do one offs like that but it can't hurt to ask, but it doesn't hurt to ask if any forum members make them :D

I have a Loopi splitter, very low tech but I'm sure if you rang them they would be able to help customise one of their products.

On a side note, I've been listening to a lot of ISIS lately and trying to incorporate some of Jeff Caxide's signature modulation transitions. In my case it usually involves engaging the EQ, delay and either chorus or flanger all at the same time in a short transitionary period. Its proving to be an absolute headache and not realistically possible in a live setting unless I leave the EQ pedal engaged as-is for the duration of my session (which is not ideal for the tone I'm going for). A looper of sorts to engage multiple effects at once would be fantastic but never even considered the trail-on effect from reverb getting cut.

I use a Zoom CDR for the reason, having the chorus and short verb on one pedal together makes it rather easy to do, I still cut the bass on my active pickups with my hand though. I'm a huge fan of using reverb or delay when shifting between dirty and clean effects, seems to flow better for the music I write.

I did end up getting a looper that had allowed trails of gumtree :)
