Meet the Looperboard

Intuitive and Customizable Workflow

Featuring individual RGB LEDs that dynamically update to provide useful feedback, the Looperboard’s 12 footswitches enable you to quickly create and transform your loops. In addition to controlling track record, overdub, and playback status, these footswitches also provide control of the length and speed of your full loop, as well as the ability to reverse, fade, transpose, bounce, undo/redo, peel, and clear individual tracks as needed. Additionally, you can reassign the function of the four start/stop footswitches to be shortcuts to your favorite features.

For the road and the studio

The HeadRush Looperboard is housed in a durable, road-ready steel chassis that is ready to travel to studios, rehearsal spaces, and gigs near and far. There is also a convenient cable route built into the Looperboard’s bottom panel so that you can keep cables organized and out of the way.


Endless Looping and Backing Tracks

The HeadRush Looperboard can record up to four stereo or mono looper tracks at once with no maximum loop length limits. You can store over eight hours of audio to its internal storage or expand to a virtually unlimited amount of storage by connecting external USB or SD drives. This combination of features enables you to loop all day and night for endless looping! In addition to importing audio directly to looper tracks, you can also use the dedicated backing track player to quickly select and play backing tracks from your internal or external storage.


Premium FX with Auto Vocal Harmony and Tuning

Featuring a suite of premium built-in FX suitable for all instruments, the HeadRush Looperboard has all you need to make guitars and basses thump, vocals sound crisp and clear, keyboards sound tight and compressed, and much more. Lo-fi and rhythmic effects like the Slicer and Pumper will open up your creative mind. Most notably, the automatic vocal harmony and tuning FX will help you get that perfect studio vocal sound during live performances every time.


Advanced Looping Features

Get the flexibility of a DAW by mixing and panning your tracks anywhere in the stereo field. Powerful features such as tap tempo with intelligent time-stretch, automatic tempo detection of loops, and quantize keep your loops sounding pristine and perfectly in time. You also have the ability have import loops (.wav or .mp3) to a track and have them automatically match them the current loop tempo. This is truly the most powerful stand-alone looper ever made!
