I just got to see the KT show from Chicago on directv. This is the second artist I've seen using some kind of sampling pedal to grab clips and loop them during the song. Anyone have an idea WHAT it is and where I can get me one?

Hey.. I have better news for anyone looking for a Headrush.. it's only $200 at www.samedaymusic.com and it's free shipping. I didn't get the Akai Headrush.. I got a Boss RC-20xl because it just seemed like you could do more with it than the Headrush. I think the only main difference is that on the Boss one you can undo/redo a loop.

If anyone who owns a Headrush wants to share their thoughts on the features of the Headrush, please do =). I didn't spring for the Headrush because it didn't seem like you could hook a mic up directly to it because Katie goes through this whole complicated system when she performs. Is this true?

Problem is with taht site selling headrush is that it doesnt ship outside the US, so us brits wouldnt be able to get it. The soundslive is the cheapest uk store i have found. when i was looking for one i did research on it really lol, cant get one from soundcontrol!! or any other music store ive been in, has to be ordered specially or do it yourself for half the price online.
Re the vocal mic: GOD YEAH IT IS TRUE!!! hooking mic up is a pain in arse! i had to buy a mixing desk to solve it kinda, but its still not hooked up properly. But i can get vocal and guitar through it at the same time + any other instrument going through the mixer!


love it though!

Hi Everbody,

I just joined this group after watchin KT 4 years ago on Taratta when she wasn't big yet. Loved her loop pedal so i bought one. I've done extensive research on how she sets up her gear and would finally like to share with all of you. I bought the Headrush 2 last year and am now a master at the loop function so I would also like to share some tips.

(1) The AKAI has 2 outputs! ("Mix" and "Head Effect") . Operator's manual DOES NOT mention this and I have already notified AKAI on this matter. Anyways, have 2 outputs means that you can plug one into dedicated amp or channel which is where looped tracks (wet) can be controlled and ALSO plug into ANOTHER amp for your guitar (dry).

(2) KT uses: Akai Headrush 2, 4 channel mixer (doesn't matter what brand), split cables (cables shapped in Y formation), and a Boss tuner (white). She does NOT use a channel switch b/c this type of switch has only one input or output. It's a Boss TU-2 tuner to mute the channel she's not using while looping. You can see the arc formation on the pedal that tells u it's a tuner.

(3) Basically, here's her set up. Follow carefully:

- She uses split Y cables for her guitar and another Y cable for her microphone (hence the Y formation). Guitar chord with two 1/4 jacks, Mic with two male XLR jacks ..let's call them split cables Guitar A,B / Mic A, B)
- Guitar A + Mic A go directly into House PA
- Guitar B + Mic B go into a small mixer on stage
- Mixer to Akai
- Akai goes in to House PA.

RESULT: 3 channels are used on house PA (guitar only, voice only, loop of guitar/voice only)

I personally do not set it up like this b/c I do very little singing and don't need a Y for vocal. I also dont like using so many cables and most importantly b/c of (1) above.. If you want to know let me know. "durwinmok@hotmail.com"

Hope this helps! If anybody wants to add to this, pls share. I just bought myself a mixer and am having fun doing solo stuff and am learning a lot!

Durwin
