Frankfurt, Germany (March 21, 2012) -- VOX Amplification announces its new Lil' Looper Multi Effect Pedal. The Lil' Looper provides looping features and high quality effects for guitarists and singers at an attractive price point. This floor effects unit contains two independent loops and two foot pedals, which allow for real time control of the loops.

Two loops can be recorded independently and layered infinitely, enabling more complex loop performances with no loss of fidelity. Overdubbing features include last-step undo and redo. The Loop Quantize feature will automatically quantize loops on the beat, as well as sync two loops to the same tempo.

Twelve types of effects are built-in, each offering numerous options. There are standard effects such as wah and delay, and unique effects such as pitch shifting and stutter, as well as bass and acoustic guitar simulators. In addition to guitar effects, some effects are designed for use with a microphone as well.

The built-in metronome can provide a rhythmic guide; Auto Recording allows an audio signal to trigger loops, eliminating the need to hit record.

The Lil' Looper is compact, lightweight, battery operated, and provides a headphone output; making it possible to create loop performances anywhere.

The VOX Lil' Looper multi-effect pedal will be available summer 2012 for a U.S. Street price of $159.99.

Philadelphia’s Public Orchestra offers an alternative to traditional classical ensembles, with room for all instruments and backgrounds.

The first time I experienced an orchestra I was 7. A year earlier, a roving teacher visited my class carrying a bag filled with plastic recorders. She gave us a simple challenge: “I’ll be back in a week to see how many of you can play this song without squeaking!” As promised, she returned one week later, and miraculously I made the cut. My reward was to be enrolled at the Newham Academy of Music in London. A week later, another teacher handed me a tiny violin and said, “If you can play the song I just taught you by next week without squeaking, you can stay.” I noticed a trend—squeaking on any instrument was bad. A year later, I was on stage at the Royal Albert Hall with about 50 other kids. Our orchestra was called Da Capo, which means “from the beginning.”
