Pigtronix Infinity Looper: The Most Musical Looping Pedal Ever Created?

The latest offering from Pigtronix just may be the most complete looping pedal on the market today


By Alex Baker


The new Infinity Looper by Pigtronix is a versatile, powerful looping pedal that may indeed be the best of its kind, when it comes to integrating seamlessly into your live or studio setup.


This pedal is ideal for anyone who wants to build up a wall of guitar sound but only has one guitar to do it with. The Infinity Looper relies on relatively basic tools and is generally pretty easy to use. It offers a variety of features including instantaneous record, playback, dub, undo and redo, all on two stereo loop pairs that can be configured in a variety of different ways.


Premier Guitar calls the Infinity Looper “responsive and easy to use at basic levels.” Despite being pretty simple to operate, the pedal comes equipped with state-of-the-art tech features that include discrete analog limiter stages, transparent analog bypass, zero latency, and nine slots for presets.


The pedal also contains a unique SYNC MULTI setting that renders it possible to make the length of Loop two to be one, two,  three, four or six times the length of Loop one. Loops can be run out of sync or in series; providing a rhythm track with a verse, chorus song structure that can free you up for other things. A “ninja style” input split mode assigns Input one to Loop one and Input two to Loop two. This allows a performer or performers to record and overdub separate instruments on separate loops, and run them simultaneously on separate amps.


Looped audio can be piped into stage monitors via an AUX loop output, making it easier to stay in the groove with yourself and the rest of your band during gigs.


The Infinity Looper is also great for recording, thanks to a USB that allows you to transfer audio to your computer at 24bit, 48kHz resolution for mixing and mastering. There’s also an audio upload feature on the pedal that allows you to upload most digital audio files onto the Looper itself.


The pedal also has a beat clock sync with MIDI input that causes loop start and stop points to obey Pro Tools and other Digital Audio Workstation sequencers that output MIDI.


The Pigtronix Infinity Looper also has a more user-friendly setup than many looping pedals with the different pedal switches far enough away from each other to prevent you from actually stepping on two at the same time.
