Looper Pedal with Drum Machine
The Rowin Beat Loop is a full featured looping pedal that incorporates an onboard drum machine. With an intuitive control layout, detailed LCD display, 50 minutes of recording time, 40 drum presets and a robust and reliable dual foot switch pedal chassis, the Beat Loop is a unique loop layering, beat making one pedal machine!
Record and Overdub Using the Footswitch
The best feature of the Rowin Beat Loop is the ease with which recording and overdubbing functions can be completed. By clicking the footswitch, the Looper becomes record enabled, as displayed by the now red backlit display. Click again and the screen turns green to indicate playback mode. Loop playback can be stopped and erased with the dedicated Stop/Clear footswitch. The Beat Loop operates in two modes; asynchronous, where the looper and drum machine switch on and off separately, and synchronous, where the loop and drum machine playback are switched on at the same time.
This unique looper includes an onboard drum machine to use as accompaniment or to add another percussive element to an ensemble. The Drum section features 40 unique drum loops, 20 with acoustic or organic drum kit sounds, and 20 with electronic sounds. The beats span a wide range of genres and feels and include drum fill capability.
Optional Additional Drum Control Input
Though all of the pedal's functionality can be utilised via the intuitive controls, the Beat Loop also includes an input for an additional dual footswitch. These switches are used to control the drum machine. The left switch is used to generate a drum "fill" and the right turns the drum machine on and off.
Upload from Windows With USB
The Rowin looper is Windows 10 compatible, allowing the user to store pre-recorded material on the pedal. Using the USB cable provided, the Looper can be connected to the PC or Laptop and WAV files transferred across, thus providing the ability for more complex, layered and professionally produced loops to be created and used in performance. For best results, download the Rowin LooperSuite and Beat Loop software from the Rowin website.

Quote from buyer:
”I have used this product for 8 Weeks and it’s amazing. We play back intros at the band performance, or I use it on my own in solo performances with all these well arranged drum loops as basic. Then I do the normal looper stuff, recording body percussion, bass and guitar with my modified acoustic guitar”.
