Electrix Pro Repeater

Electrix Repeater Image

Repeater is a new loop-based digital recorder/sampler from Electrix. It is also their 6th product in a series of outstanding and beautiful rack-mount processors. Repeater uses cutting edge DSP technology with MIDI sequencer style control over your audio loops by offering independent, real-time manipulation over tempo, key and track offset.

Repeater is not your ordinary sampler. It truly is a digital delay unit. You can trigger it in various ways to record any audio source for any amount of time you choose (up to 50 minutes of record time via CompactFlash media). The recording repeats as a loop synced to a tempo. You can overdub additional sounds to arrange and mix layers of loops and you can tweak each loop-recording in real time. Loops can also sync to MIDI clock or to Audio Beat Detection. This makes the Repeater perfect not just for musicians, but DJs too! Changing the Tempo will adjust the samples and loops without degrading the sound quality!

In the Project Studio, musicians may find the Repeater useful as a scratchpad. Play some chords into it, overdub a bassline, then jam along! It may also be useful for creating delay effects to a mix with unprecedented control. The DJ may find the Repeater great for sampling a loop off a record using the Audio Beats Detect mode to match the tempo, and then replaying that loop over another section of that song or over an entirely new record to create entirely new ways of mixing! It is used by Richie Hawtin and Imogen Heap.

@Kevin: the only official source for upgrades and repairs is:

Peter Toms
Condor Electronics Inc
125 North 36th Street
Seattle WA USA 98103
206 633 5190
206 633 0803 fax

They were THE official repair source during Electrix's existence.

They'll do the noise mod, the power supply mod, and the hardware upgrade for $250. Worth every penny!

Robyn Guthrie's use of this unit is responsible for some of the best music to have ever graced the planet and having seen him utilize it live many times is the reason I bought one. I've certainly received my money's worth without having even scratched the surface of it's capabilities! The fact that Electrix was utilizing flash card storage several years before anyone else serves as a prime example of the futuristic mindset inside this unit!

Go for the noise mod if you can but most certainly the full OS upgrade as there are some annoying glitches inside the stock system.
