NAMM 2020: Pigtronix has unveiled the second version of its popular looper pedal, Infinity. Dubbed the Infinity 2 Dual Looper, the new edition of the device simplifies the existing user interface, smartens up the graphics and adds a few features that are focused on both live and studio use.
At its core, the Infinity 2 is a stereo looper with a pair of independent loops, each maxing out at five minutes. The pedal is based on what Pigtronix calls a ‘Verse/Chorus’ workflow, in which guitarists can seamlessly shuttle between parts at the click of a footswitch. Additionally, the Infinity 2 allows musicians to quickly delete the loop that isn’t currently playing, freeing up a valuable slot on the fly.
That action, along with others such as cueing overdubs and stopping a loop, occurs at the end of the currently playing loop, which removes the need to synchronise your foot tap with the music.
Other features on the Infinity 2 include:
- Stop, Stutter and Octave Shift effects, which are selectable via a push button on the enclosure or an optional remote pedal
- A Decay knob that forces loops to progressively fade out during overdubs
- Undo/Redo function that can be assigned to the left footswitch
- Audio inputs that accept mono and stereo instruments as well as line-level signals
- Dual outputs that can be routed for stereo with pass-through and loop audio mixed together, or configured for discrete wet/dry operation. In the latter, loop audio is summed to one output and pass-through audio is sent to the other
- 24-bit/44kHz USB recording
In our review of the original Pigtronix Infinity, we said, “The Infinity isn’t cheap but it sounds great, offers an extensive range of features, and is a very flexible and musical tool.”
