    The blue item in the rack, I believe its a Yamaha.... it comes with the gold footswitch with 5 buttons I think.

    My worst nightmare!

    sorry, nothing to contribute - just feeling flippant.

    The more important question is...How many more pieces of tape will that mic stand tolerate?

    i think it's an Electrix Repeater

    one of the best loopers ever made!!!!!!! i want one so hard. it's like a 4ch looper with built-in mixer capabilities.

    the company is out of business, but you can check eBay.

    A local band "The jimmy swift band" uses two of these. One for keys and one for guitar. They keyboard player was telling me that he can instantly sync his loop to the guitar players loop. This band is a pretty intense show, they are great musicians and they are fully soaked in effects everytime they perform. I saw their last show, it was the first time I ever saw the keyboard player trigger the vocoder for the vocalist.

    here is their website should you care:

    or

    Hmmm. First you claim you don't what it is, then next a local band uses two of them and after speaking to them about it, you then just happen to have the bands promo web address that you post?

    Ok..... Sure appears to be a setup to post SPAM.

    I'm still reeling from Rockstar's find.
    I was looking at the wrong gold pedal entirely.
    Obviously he meant the gold pedal with the five buttons, not the gold pedal with the four buttons and a wah pedal.

    But yeah, you don't know what it is, yet you know how two of them get used.

    Enlighten us with your learning adventure.

    I guess I stepped out of line posting the bands website. I did not mean it as spam. I saw a great show and am kinda in 'fan mode'.

    I've been aware of the machine for quite some time, never knew what it was. When I spoke to the keyboard player, he told me how he 'worked it'. But I couldn't remember the name of the device. After seeing rockstars post, and learning the name of the unit, I wondered if the keyboard player mis-led me by saying it was a yamaha, or I heard the wrong thing. The unit is an integral part of the band.

    Greener, it is possible to know how something works but not know what it is called.

    For example, if you are wearing shoes with laces, you may understand what concept is involved tying them. But without googling it, do you know the name of the plastic bits at the ends of the shoelace?

    Remember its an example.

    Nah, it's not out of line.

    And thank you for letting me know how you came to have the information you did.
    My guess is the keyboardists was filling you full of it.
    If you see him again, tell him you're totally keen to get an Electrix Repeater from Yamaha.

    I have NFI what those things on the end of shoe laces are called. But if you cut them off, fray one end and shove a pin through it, they work like a perfect dart in a Maccas straw.

    I don't know what it's called but I can abuse it. :p

    They are called AGLETS.

    He did say something on the lines of "you seem to want to know about all my secrets". He was a ever so tiny bit defensive.

    Whilst we are on the topic of language.

    They are can be contracted to they're.

    However, I do look forward to telling people I can see their aglets. Cheers.

    what an inexperienced dick. if he's any good he would want people to see what he's doing. it sounds to me like he's hiding behind his gear, and that implies poor musicianship.

    tell him to learn how to play a keyboard and smack him across the face for his arrogance.

    Nope, the guy is not inexperienced. He is an amazing musician and a nice guy, he said that line with a hint of sarcasm which I should have thrown in.
