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.

There was a synth called the minimoog it is a classic, there was a drum machine called the TR-808 it is a classic, there was a looper called the repeater it is a classic. For electronic music production no other h/ware looper touches it on sound or features, be aware that the repeater is probably not the best for guitar use, or where you don't have a free hand, but for vocalists, synth nerds, beatboxers, experimentalists it is amazing, the Octatrack can't touch it for proper looping. The midi sync is great, and the timestrech sounds great if you go too far (do!) Ahead of it's time, a classic.

Hello all, I too love this and the other fx mods. Does anyone have access to the original repeater demo that was on their site, with the guy and the guitar? I would really like to have it as that is the demo that inspired me to acquire all of their products. Awesome...crazy....insane piece of kit. Damn!
