Electrix Repeater In Software


Electrix, a division of SBD Music, Inc., has announced its plans to show their New Virtual Repeater Pro software in September at the Plasa show in London.
The groundbreaking Electrix Repeater bought a host of new capabilities to the musician, DJ and dedicated ‘looper’ when it was launched in 2001 – earning a solid following. The re-launched Electrix brand say that they are dedicated to supporting the existing Repeater product as well as bringing its outstanding capabilities to a wider audience. The first offering in this product line is VirtualRepeater for PC and Mac. Electrix say that the experience of six years of Repeater has gone into making VirtualRepeater a uniquely powerful tool for making music and on-the-fly remix.
Adam Scolaro, President of Electrix, told us, “With more and more rack mount units becoming virtual programs, we wanted to make Repeater available for all Mac and PC users. Electrix achieved great recognition for their simple and intuitive user interface designs, whilst allowing users to enjoy rich control over their audio. VirtualRepeater takes this philosophy further, delivering a Graphical User Interface experience that is simple, intuitive and powerful. It complements the existing UI with new graphical ways of interacting with loop material, allowing artists to see and interact with their audio flow – in real time.�

Don Goodeve of Elecrtix had this to say, “It was a highpoint of my career to lead the development of the Electrix Repeater; a 13 month gestation involving guitar, bass, techno/trance, folk, outstanding design, late nights and six really smart people really cooking in not very much space to make it happen. A great experience - we are all still very proud of what we built. With VirtualRepeater I am getting the chance to put the icing on the cake. I think you will like it…� Pricing and Availability:
