The Rang™ is the coolest phrase sampler around. So what's a phrase sampler? It's a musical tool that records, makes loops, adds parts (as many as you want), plays in reverse, plays back faster or slower than normal and more.
The Rang™ is a rugged, steel floor pedal with six foot switches and a unique foot roller for volume control.
It can be a songwriter's scratch pad, a tireless partner for rehearsing or jamming, and an amazing live performance tool. Best of all, using a Rang™ will improve your playing, and as a recent magazine article says, it has "a knock out fun factor."
Easiest to use phrase sampler on the planet. It's set up for hands free operation; a single button press controls most functions.
2 independent loops. There are a couple of ways to move seamlessly between loops. One mode, called AB1, smoothly transitions to loop B, plays it once, then goes back to playing loop A, all with one button press.
After creating a loop, additional parts can be layered in forward or reverse.
The STACK button, which adds parts, can be either latching or momentary - your choice.
There are 7 decay rates to choose from: 1 is no decay, 2 provides about 22 repeats (the rate of the original Rang™), 3 thru 6 are progressively quicker and 7 is slapback (1 repeat). The faster decay rates and latching STACK button make the Rang™ a great tap tempo delay. You can use loop A as a phrase sampler and loop B as a traditional delay effect. Independent decay rates can be set for loops A and B.
The RECORD button can be programmed to be disabled during playback. Some folks don't want to worry about hitting it while adjusting the foot roller.
5 slow speeds. All are musically related to normal speed. Your choices are: down a 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th or octave. Playback tempo is slowed and pitch is dropped by the chosen interval.
Live reverse leads! The Rang™ has a mode where it records and plays back simultaneously, producing the "reversed tape" sound used by Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and others.
Long recording time. Time ranges from 1 min. 27 sec. to 4 min. 16 sec. depending on which sample rate you chose. Sample rates range from 24 KHz down to 8 KHz. All samples are 16 bit with no compression.
Power supply is included.
