RE: Akai Headrush Questions
don't know why it tells you to tap the right button twice, must be an
error in the E2 manual. Pressing it twice (without pressing the left
button) should begin the recording phase over. After you press the left
button, pressing the right one will put into overdub mode (which is
infinite). Double clicking the right button after you have overdubbed,
will erase everything except the original recording. To start all
over you have to click the left button to "stop" the playback, then you can
start recording with the right button again. I had tons of fun with my
Headrush, and I think it is a great looper to get started on, every simple
interface. But it does have some serious limitations. I know
the manual isn't much help, but for looping purposes (not all the delay stuff),
there really isn't much to it.
....What made it a "blem?"
Just got an allegedly new Headrush from Musician's
Friend and it's a blem: they quickly corrected the mistake monetarily (thank
you MF) but I'm not sure if it's working correctly.
It says to tap the
right button to begin recording and to tap it again to end recording, which
doesn't work. The allegedly recorded part does not begin to loop.
only way I can get a loop to record and then loop is if I tap the right
button, play the riff and then tap the left button, bypassing tapping the
right button the recommended second time.
The manual is terse at best
(there's got to be a middle ground between 4 and 200 pages like my last guitar
And is there a way to erase everything and start like
new - something like a reset button?
Any advice is appreciated!! The
pedal looks like a keeper and I'd like to figure out how to work the darn
