The Akai Headrush E2pedal continues on from where the award-winning Akai Headrush E1 left off. The new Akai E2 Headrush delay pedal brings delay, tape echo simulations and a looping recorder in one convenient pedal. User selectable delay options allow for maximum control of signal output and include several real-time timing and level adjustment selections as well as feedback level for repeats. The Akai Headrush can also simulate a 4-head analog tape echo machine and it is possible to set the spacing between these 'virtual' heads to create complex multiple delays and repeats. You can also set the decay characteristics of these heads. Furthermore, the outputs of each of these virtual heads appear on individual outputs for ultimate flexibility when used with an external mixing console. The LOOPING RECORDER mode allows you to record and overdub layer after layer of sound in real-time making the Headrush an unbelievable live performance tool. Depending upon which mode is selected, the left footswitch controls the on/off and play/stop functions while the right footswitch sets the tap delay time or recording and overdub options. The LED display indicates which effect in use and blinks in time showing the delay time selected.

NOTE TO DELAY TWEEKERS (meaning you like to turn the knobs while the delay is on to create crazy sounds...) This is not the pedal for you. When you turn the delay settings while a signal is going through it, the delay effect is reset every time you make an adjustment. So you can not make those crazy delay tweeking swoops and robotic metal chainsaw oscillations like some other delay pedals...
The sound quality is pretty good.
The length of the recording has always been an issue - just not long enough.
My biggest peeve - the new E2 has a switch that must be pressed to select the Loop option for recording. There is no way to set 'Loop' as the default (as on the original), so a power interruption requires you to fiddle with the pedal to get back to Looping. It's a minor thing, but when I set up my board, I don't like to have to go back and tweak things every time I fire it up to play.
In the end, for practice, it's great, but for live stuff, it's a bit limiting.
