Building on EHX’s looper legacy, the 45000 combines the familiar
controls of a multi-track digital recorder with state-of-the-art
features making it possible to create complex multi-track loops quickly
Each loop has four mono tracks and one stereo mixdown track. The
45000 records non-compressed, 44.1 kHz / 16-bit CD quality audio direct
to a removable SDHC card (4 to 32GB). Each card holds up to 100
individual loops accessed with the optional 45000 Foot Controller (INCLUDED).
Loop speed is adjustable over a two octave range, and reverse
recording and playback are also possible. For extra convenience, a
built-in metronome to a separate Monitor Out and a Headphone Out are
Includes a 4GB card delivering up to 125 minutes of recording time

Remote Foot Controller for 45000
The 45000 Foot Controller is a wired remote control
for the 45000 Looper, giving your feet direct access to the following
controls: Track Select, Record, Play, Loop Up and Loop Down.
The 45000 Looper records and plays back up to 100 loops per SDHC
card. The 45000 Foot Controller makes it very easy for your feet to
navigate through your 100 loops, moving up or down through loops by 1 or
10 at a time; allowing you to seamlessly change loops while playing
back. Additionally, the 45000 Foot Controller contains a large
dual-digit LED display to clearly indicate your current or next loop at
- GETTING STARTED -
Connect the 45000 Foot Controller (45000 FC) to your 45000 main unit
using a standard 1/4” mono instrument cable. Plug into the jack labeled
FOOT CONTROLLER on the 45000 Looper. The other end of the cable should
be inserted into the 45000 FC’s jack labeled INPUT. As long as the 45000
main unit is powered up, the digits on the 45000 FC will light up
indicating it is ready for use.
- DISPLAY AND FOOTSWITCHES -
2-DIGIT LED DISPLAY – shows the currently loaded or selected loop
number in the 45000 main unit. The numbers range from 00 to 99. If a
loop number contains audio on the SDHC card, the rightmost decimal point
on the 45000 FC will light. If the rightmost decimal point is not lit,
then that particular loop number is empty.
LOOP UP/DOWN Footswitches and LEDs – Pressing the LOOP UP footswitch
will increment the loop number by 1. Press the LOOP DOWN footswitch to
decrement the loop number by 1. Press and hold either footswitch for
approximately half a second to jump up or down by ten loops at a time
instead of just one.
The loop number can be changed when the 45000 is either idle
(stopped) or playing back a loop. You cannot change the loop number when
recording or overdubbing the loop. If the 45000 is playing back a loop
at the time you press either the LOOP UP or LOOP DOWN footswitches, the
2-digit display on the Foot Controller will blink the new loop number,
indicating that the 45000 will change to the blinking loop as soon as
the current loop plays out to its endpoint. If the newly selected loop
number is empty, it will continue to blink until you stop playback or
enter overdub, at which time the loop number will return to the last
loop that was loaded.
The 45000 remembers the last Play setting for the following
parameters of each loop number: TEMPO slider, REVERSE button and OCTAVE
button. When you go back to any given loop number, these parameter
settings will be reinstated for that loop.
The LOOP UP and LOOP DOWN LEDs light up when each associated footswitch is held down.
RECORD Footswitch and LED – Pressing the RECORD footswitch on the
45000 FC is equivalent to pressing the RECORD button on the 45000 main
unit. Usually pressing the RECORD footswitch toggles between Play and
Overdub modes. If you load an empty loop number, pressing the RECORD
footswitch will immediately begin recording a new loop (or start the
4-beat count-in when Quantize is enabled). In the situation where you
want to create a completely different loop for a loop number that
already contains audio, you need to first press the NEW LOOP button on
the 45000 main unit, then press the RECORD footswitch on the 45000 FC.
The RECORD LED on the 45000 FC mimics the RECORD LED on the 45000
main unit. In addition, the RECORD LED on the 45000 FC lights when the
RECORD footswitch is held down.
PLAY Footswitch and LED – Pressing the PLAY footswitch on the 45000
FC is equivalent to pressing the PLAY button on the 45000 main unit.
Usually pressing the PLAY footswitch will start or stop loop play,
though it will also end a loop when recording a new loop.
The PLAY LED on the 45000 FC mimics the PLAY LED on the 45000 main
unit. In addition the PLAY LED on the 45000 FC lights when the PLAY
footswitch is held down.
TRACK SELECT Footswitch and LED – Pressing the TRACK SELECT
footswitch on the 45000 FC is equivalent to pressing the TRACK SELECT
button on the 45000 main unit. You can use the TRACK SELECT footswitch
to cycle through the four tracks when recording loops in a live setting
without needing to touch the 45000 main unit.
The TRACK SELECT LED on the 45000 FC lights up when Track 1 is
selected but shuts off when any other track is selected. If Stereo Mode
is enabled on the 45000, the TRACK SELECT LED lights when the Track 1
& 2 pair is selected. Additionally, the TRACK SELECT LED on the
45000 FC lights when the TRACK SELECT footswitch is held down.
-INPUT JACK -
Insert a standard 1/4” mono guitar or instrument cable into the INPUT
jack of the 45000 FC. Plug the other end of the cable into the FOOT
CONTROLLER jack of the 45000 main unit.
- POWER -
Power for the 45000 Foot Controller comes from the 45000 main unit,
through the 1/4” instrument cable. The Foot Controller does not require
batteries or a separate AC Adapter. Its only source of power is the
