Guitar Looping at Home (or single instrument looping: keyboard, violin, vocal, bass, etc..)
If you’re just doing guitar looping by yourself at home, something like a Focusrite 2i4 will get the job done nicely. I’ve had on of these for maybe 8 years now and it has held up very well and I’ve been happy with the sound quality. With two, single line inputs, you can plug in:
- A guitar and a mic
- A guitar and a bass
- Stereo outputs from a keyboard
- An acoustic guitar and a violin mic
You get the idea. Two inputs. The Focusrite 2i4 will also work for solo performance situations. For example, it would work well for a singer / songwriter with an acoustic and and a vocal mic.
The Focusrite has a headphone jack, two line outs as well as RCA outs – for plugging into your stereo for example.
