Re: 2 questions about akai headrush E2

thanks for the replys. it looks like it does work the way I hoped in terms of outputs, and I'm more comfortable knowing that hiss hasn't been an issue. now to bite the bullet and buy the thing.

I use one regularly, and have never noticed any hiss at all!

As for the four outputs, you can set the heads to independent speakers, which I did here: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=gy-SVV8b3QI

I have 2 questions for anyone with experience with the headrush:

(1) hiss? I've read some reviews that the hiss can be bad. My setup is mildly prone to hiss as is (and I typically take things out because hiss does bother me).

Can't comment on the hiss, as I don't have one ;)

(2) the 4 output function...

If no cables are inserted into those outs, all four echo taps (i.e. like tape echo heads) are mixed onto the combined out.
Cables inserted into one or more of the head outs will carry that head tap, and it will be removed form the mix out.
This also means you can just insert a dummy jack into a head out to remove it from the mix.
In the mix out you could then have i.e. 1, 2, no-3, 4.

The 'manual' is downloadable from akaipro.com (maybe akai-pro.com).
