The Minilooper is essentially a scaled back version of the Sweet 16. It can still be used as a digital delay with tap tempo and an infinite hold or as the looper with reverse functions but does not have the functionality of adding modulation or the vintage mode that continuously records in bypass.
looping digital delay inspired by the original 80s electro harmonix 16 second digital delay.

What the ….? Another pedal?? Really???
Well, in that case, congratulations and big thanks to you!!
Now, in honor of our brand new friendship, let’s talk a little and let us introduce you (with all respect) to the minilooper, our simpler, smaller, wiser, funnier and, why not? sexier (so sexier, dammit)iteration of our acclaimed Sweet 16.
We know you don't really need all the ﬁnest crapology you see in a detailed manual but, let's face it: lately, your brain it's sending all sort of signals and i'm not saying that you can't handle it, so yes, we took away some knobs and some switches too, just to...
No! No! Wait! It's not your fault! Put that rope where you found it and sit down! Stop crying, please and stay with me a few minutes on these. And give me the gun too... that's it, well done.
Yeah, yeah, we know, but tears are good. Just forget it and let's move on, ok? As you can see (since you're reading this, we assume you can see) the unit has (yet) several controlled features for your amusement and those are:
The Pot Class_
The Switch Class_
9_ REC/TAP 10_ BYPASS
Since every control and/or function is very self explanatory, let's take a look on possibilities and yeah, any way, w'll take cover on all those fancy and extra-complex names like "TIME" or "BLEND"...
Gimme a break...
Easy stands for...easy: insert the eﬀect in your chain, check that your INFINITE led it's oﬀ and all your knobs somewhere between noon and 2 o'clock, put a signal through the input, then stomp the BYPASS, and get some reps! Yes!! How cool is that?? Set your tempo taping the REC/TAP switch, an even number of times. Use the TIME knob to ﬁne adjust or just detune (yep, you love it) Use FEEDBACK to set your reps and BLEND to set your wet (CW) dry (CCW) relationship
all together and feel free to annoy yourself; 'cause we’re just starting…
Inﬁnite? You mean like... forever? Bravo!! You guess it all alone??
And yes, once you get something interesting, you can keep it, that's it, just use that INFINITE toggle. Dammit, those bulletproof coﬀees ﬁnally are working your brain oﬀ.
Impressive. Just step on the thing and enjoy, for the blood of all delays...
THA LOOP HOLE
And... here we go again. What are you lookin' at?
See that REC/TAP written in fancy white slightly near the extreme left(y) switch? Well, THAT is the switch you're looking for. Bingo. If you are not familiarized with the regular and most common procedures to record into some sort of device that have a recording/looping function, we're done here and don't open the door if you see three guys with a bat, tape and a plastic bag.
But... maybe (and let me reiterate here, maybe) you're that weird-still-inofensive blok submerged into all kind of esoteric
matters waiting for an answer to the intangible and, if that's the case, oh boy, you touch our old frozen heart and your hidden light is about to jump in the next level. Still, don't open the door...
Set INFINITE to on (led lits) hit the REC/TAP switch (see the big led turn to red?) record up to 30 secs of your seminal glory, hit it again...
No, no, no... please, don't bow, don't thank us...
let us we to be the thankful here... really.
THE REVERSE DICHOTOMY:
When REVERSE is on (led lit) your delayed/recorded signal will be instantly reversed. Once you use it, you'll became "The Reversed One" and you will never be the same. Never. And you will be respected. And ﬁlthy rich. But the world will end. That's a f'kin fact.
