When the HeadRush Looperboard launched, it immediately cemented itself as the new ‘must have’ product. If you've invested in the HeadRush family (or are yet to join the club), you'll be pleased to hear that HeadRush is continuing to develop the Looperboard, and Firmware 2.0 takes it to the next level.

With huge new features such as Endless Looping potential, Auto Tune and Harmonise effects, plus a whole new UI, now is the time to join the HeadRush family and get looping!

Industry Leading FX, including Auto Vocal Tuning and Harmony

We’ll start with the big one. HeadRush has once again added more of its outstanding FX into this new Firmware update.

You'll find a brand-new Vocal Tuning and Vocal Harmony feature. If you've ever wanted to add additional vocal layers, you can now achieve this with ease. You can also play around with your voice in real-time using the new Auto Tune feature. Both hugely powerful features - at the tap of a footswitch.

Whie these are the highlights, there are also some more effects crammed into this update. Slicer allows up to chop up the sound in a pre-selected rhythmic pattern. Pumper creates a rhythmic pumping effect, like that of sidechain compression. LFO-Sync creates filter sweeps using a pre-selected time division of the tempo.

HeadRush and the Never Ending Looper

You read that right - with the Firmware 2 update, you have the potential for never-ending loops! You can now connect a hard drive, USB stick, or SD card, via the USB/SD card inputs on the rear panel of the Looperboard, and record directly onto it as you perform. Whether it is backing tracks or performances, you’re now limited only by the space of your connected hard drive.

Advanced Looping, Enhanced Interface

With the exciting potential of endless looping, you can imagine it'd be handy having some features to keep track of your performance. Fortunately, HeadRush has that under control! Auto-BPM Detection keeps you in perfect time when recording a loop, which is particularly useful when importing audio (.wav or .mp3) to a loop track, or when adding a backing track that is a different tempo than the current session. The non-destructive time-stretch will match any imported audio perfectly, without altering the pitch or sound quality.

Rounding out the feature set in Looperboard Firmware 2.0 is an all-new UI layout. Navigating pages is now even easier with a new icon-based menu screen, a new FX section layout, and an incredible new mixer screen, with on-screen explanations of features and looper modes. For compete personalisation of your Looperboard, Firmware 2.0 also allows you to customise the top four Start/Stop footswitches as shortcuts to any feature—an unprecedented degree of personalisation for looping pedals
