Re: Boomerang 3


Just got back home from a long day of rehearsals. I'm gonna kick back for a bit, eat a massive amount of mashed potatoes and then I will investigate feedback control on the Boomerang for ya. I will report back shortly.

Yes I think so Sjaak, we do have a similar approach I think. I come from using delays for my looping and have never been really comfortable with "phrase samplers" which the Boomer is of course. Just too stiff for me. Great if I played songs, hehe

The 2880 is a phrase sampler at heart but also comes from the EH 16 sec school of thinking in some important ways. I use it as close as I can to a delay type looper only with reverse and octave. And I combine that with the DD 20. The two together are as close as I have been able to get to what I am looking for. The M 9 although mono is actually a pretty cool looper with an ex ped. But not the end all of course.

The main reason I am reconsidering the 2880 is the frustrating lack of headroom! I can and do deal with it but it really limits my use of dynamics...

I guess that is hardware and will never be addressed although i do write to the forums, etc...sigh :)

Sounds like you're looping the same way as me. There was another tread
1-2 months ago and if I remember it well, the Rang III can't do that.
It's still not clear to me how the feedback (called Decay) exactly
works, global or per track.
