Akai Headrush E2 Pedal

Following on from where the award-winning E1 left off, the new E2 Headrush delay pedal brings delay, tape echo simulations and a looping recorder in one convenient pedal. User selectable delay options allow for maximum control of signal output and include several real-time timing and level adjustment selections as well as feedback level for repeats.

Headrush can also simulate a 4-head analog tape echo machine and it is possible to set the spacing between these "virtual: heads to create complex multiple delays and repeats. You can also set the decay characteristics of these heads. Furthermore, the outputs of each of these virtual heads appear on individual outputs for ultimate flexibility when used with an external mixing console.

The Looping Recorder mode allows you to record and overdub layer after layer of sound in real-time making the Headrush an unbelievable live performance tool.

Depending upon which mode is selected, the left footswitch controls the on/off and play/stop functions while the right footswitch sets the tap delay time or recording and overdub options. The Headrush's LED display indicates which effect in use and blinks in time showing the delay time selected.

Features:

- 16-bit Digital Delay - Delay time from 0.5ms to an astonishing 35 seconds maximum (*)
- Tape Echo mode with four individual outputs for each head
- Looping Recorder with overdub mode - Powerful tool for solo performances
- Head Gap adjusts the delay time between the heads
- HF Damp simulates an analog delay sound
- Feedback sets the feedback level for repeat times
- Ratio allows adjustment of wet and dry mix
- Real-time delay control - sets delay time by tapping footswitch twice

(*) Depending on the selected mode

5 out of 5 (40 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Headrushes are great!"
Sound: The quality used in making this product is exceptional. The loop feature is a lot of fun. It is a great beang for the buck product. I'll be getting one as soon as i can afford it (i am only 15 so money is limited but this product is still affordable). Feature: From what i have used tis has great tones. They are good for what the job is and they dont mess up the sound. Quality: It is a Korg, Korg makes great products, hince this a great product. It is made well and is strong. Value: 250 dollars isn't chump change, but what you're getting is a quality product that is FUN and easy to use! Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to deal with the company, because the products have always been quality. The Wow Factor: Blue is always cool and it is not a bad shade of it either! It has straight forward styling and that is what i like. Overall: This "pedal" has everything. It has a loop, which i love. The freedom of the loop is excelent, and eas of use is great!

"Very unimpressed."
Sound: When this pedal is working, its excellent and I love it. To my ears, the sound that goes in is the sound that comes out. Feature: I only use it to record loops. Again, when it's working it is great for this. Ease of Use: Once you get the knack it's fine. It was depressingly difficult for me when I first got it home. Figuring out when to start and stop recording to fit the loop seamlessly into a song took quite a bit of trial and error. It also requires good timing. To make it sound smooth you need to be right on the beat. It is definitely worth persevering though. I think my best songs have been written on this pedal. Quality: Quality is terrible. I'm really annoyed about it. The foot switches have just gone for the third time in under two years. The record and play switches both fail to work reliably. I Had it repaired twice in eight months last year. I didn't use it up until August this year and the switches have gone again. You feel pretty stupid when you're on stage halfway through a song and the whole song stops because the switch didn't work. Basically, I can't use it and am looking to replace it with a different brand. Value: In short I would look elsewhere. Having switches work only some of the time makes it not worth the money or trouble.
