One of the nicer things about being a professional musician is that I can buy new and interesting gear, then write it off on my taxes. I just came into possession of a Pigtronix Infinity Looper, and let me tell you – this thing is killer! I bought it because it was specifically listed as working with Singular Sound’s BeatBuddy, the best drum machine for live gigging, and a workhorse on my pedal board.
I have barely scratched the surface of this device, and I’ll post something more later when I have a chance to really get into it, but I wanted to just start by saying that the dudes that make this are just that, a couple of dudes. I called tech support because I wanted to update the firmware and had a couple of questions, and ended up just hanging out with the guy on the other end of the (strangely terrible) connection for 15 minutes.
He walked me through the manual install process, clearly knew a ton about the equipment, and also about being a musician, and was just an excellent person.
Having played with this pedal for a grand total of fifteen minutes, I can’t tell you much, but I can tell you three things:
- The integration with BeatBuddy is as good, if not better, than advertised. I can control everything with my feet, while playing, and it stays right in sync.
- This is an incredibly powerful device – the sound is crystal clear, and it has an insane number of functions
- I’m going to have to spend some serious shredding time to get to where I’m comfortable taking this thing out into the wild – it’s got a lot going on.
