Repeater Loop Recorder
Repeater is the next step in the evolution of loop-based music production. To the studio musician, it gives a power to arrange audio that was normally reserved for MIDI. Live musicians can safely sample and integrate loops into their performance with almost no learning curve. Repeater's algorithms are tailored to making the looping process simple and intuitive.Features...
-Loop Point Assist™ algorithm takes the tedious pre-production work away from creating the perfect loop. Loop
-Audio Beat Detection automatically syncs recording and playback to any rhythmic audio source, such as a sample CD, vinyl, or a kick drum.
-Intuitive interface means a short learning curve so you are having fun and being creative faster.
-Repeater has an 8-minute (40 MB) loop limit. That's larger than any other hardware, looping device.
-Repeater can have up to 999 loops with 4 tracks per loop.

Rat Distorsion
Full control of the sound is provided by distortion amount, filter, and volume controls. Tune in just the right amount of overdrive, get the presence you need without the tinny treble, and balance the volume for the perfect extra "kick" for lead breaks. Distortion, sustain, fuzz, or overdrive: the sound remains unmistakably yours--not fake or gimmicky.
Also, the Rat won't change the tone or power of you guitar when it's turned off; our true bypass switch disconnects it completely from the instrument when it is not in use, eliminating the loading effects common among other devices.
Effects boxes are notorious for unreliable operation, but the Rat was engineered to survive the abuse and neglect of life on the road. The rugged steel chassis houses a mil-spec epoxy-glass PC board for extreme shock resistance, vital in a foot-operated unit. The heavy-duty industrial-grade footswitch was chosen for its reliable positive action and long, dependable life.

Stick Preamp - Rane SP 13
The SP 13 is a version of the AP 13, optimized for Stick musicians. It is available exclusively from Stick Enterprises.
Dedicated to the needs of the Stick musician, the SP 13 Stick Preamplifier is a full-featured package specifically suited for instruments with two pickups. The SP 13 provides two signal processing paths: both optimized for passive Stick pickups. These paths feature very high input impedance for extended low bass response. Additionally, either channel accepts dynamic pickups or line-level outputs from outboard preamps. A convenient front panel slide switch allows choice of which pickup is wired to the tip or the ring of the stereo 1/4" input jack. Handy pickup Gain trim controls feature large openings for quick changes using guitar picks, fingernails or coins. And separate pickup Overload indicators make gain set-up easy.
Each pickup signal path contains an Invert switch, an adjustable Low Cut filter, a 7-band graphic equalizer, a Pan control and a separate Level amplifier, all logically arranged along the front panel using smooth-acting oil-damped sliders for the ultimate in convenience and graphical feedback. The Invert switch allows the user to invert the phase of each pickup relative to the other. The sliding Low Cut filter helps eliminate troublesome thumping, rumbling, rubbing and other unwanted infrasonic frequencies. The graphic equalizers give you separate timbre control over each individual pickup. The Pan and Level controls mix both pickups into one smooth stereo signal ready to drive the Send/Return effects loop, or the in-line Inserts. Two pair of high-current cross-coupled balanced stereo line drivers, with Mono switch on the rear panel, complete the processing chain. Choose between the stereo 1/4" line-level outs for amplifier feed or the stereo XLR mic-level outs for direct console patching, or use them both.
A powerful Headphone amplifier and Master Mute switch allow private auditioning and practice. The separate Tuner Output routes both Inputs to a mono output for easy tuning of both pickups with a single tuning device. When an auxiliary output is necessary, the separate unbalanced Aux Output with Level control perfectly satisfies the need. An additional Expander Input allows a second stereo processed signal to be returned to the Main Outputs. This means that each pickup can be processed independently and mixed together for stereo applications.
The SP 13 Acoustic Preamplifer is all you ever dreamed of for perfect control and integration of your Chapman Stick (years of practice not included).
Price $480 /available at Stick Enterprises.
