Sonuus Loopa – The Worlds First Looper Microphone
Sonuus is a UK based brand created by team of guitar-playing engineers with experience in creating professional hardware and software musical products. They recently took on the endeavor to create the world’s first looper microphone. It works just like a normal microphone, but lets you record what you sing, replay it in a loop and sing over it. Layer and loop your voice with 12 minutes recording time, unlimited overdubbing and multi-level undo/redo.
With the Loopa you can build up layers of sound, controlling the looping and overdubbing using the controls on the microphone. This means that you are free to move around while you sing or perform and the control is intuitive because it is in your hands, where you are already holding the microphone. The Loopa was developed by, not only “looper” visionaries, but audio specialist. The result is a powerful, crystal clear sounding microphone, with high functioning looper capabilities.
The Loopa is built with an LED light at the base of the diaphragm that lights up as red or green, solid or flashing, to indicate whether you are recording, running playback, or undoing a section. All the controls are built into the microphone into a little cave where your thumb would set. With a little bit of practice, the controls can become very intuitive and easy to roll with.
The project is currently seeking backers on Kickstarter and is still in the early stages of its campaign. You can still donate to get the Early Bird Loopa for the price of $145 before the special deals are gone and the microphone begins to sell at it’s regular cost of $172. The product has already been backed by Grammy award winning artist Vernon Reid and two time Loopstation Champion, beatboxer Hobbit, Jose Valentino and Toshiba.
