The TC Electronic WireTap pedal makes it easier than ever to capture a song idea while you're riffing, gigging, or jamming. You can play back ideas through your amp to craft parts on top live like a looper. Or you can export ideas via Bluetooth to the free WireTap app and store them for safe keeping or share with fans and friends. You can also take the opportunity to re-amp parts through an amp/amp simulator and create your own multi-track masterpieces. The TC Electronic WireTap records one idea at a time and stores up to 8 hours of uncompressed 24-bit audio.
The pint-sized TC Electronic WireTap is ultra compact and boasts true bypass switching, making it an utterly unobtrusive part of your pedalboard. Imagine the power of being able to capture the energy of a complete live set, before or after all your pedals (including your looper), and reviewing your work later or overdubbing over it. And imagine the convenience of capturing a full song and playing it back live in front of your bandmates. Heck, you could even record an entire set's worth of accompaniment and perform over yourself. Music Experience guitar and bass players love our TC Electronic pedals and look forward to experimenting with the WireTap on the road.
WireTap Riff Recorder is the new must-have tool for every serious songwriter out there. With this ultra-compact pedal firmly secured to your pedalboard you'll never see yourself lose that killer riff or super-catchy melody ever again when inspiration strikes. Just hit record, jam on like you're used to, and begin building your majestic song catalogue right there on the spot in collaboration with the free WireTap app. McCartney had Lennon, Hetfield has Hammett, you have WireTap!
We guitarists tend to trust our own memory too much. We create that million-dollar riff, tell ourselves we'll remember it for later, and when we return…GONE! We take notes, use voice recording apps but nothing really sticks. There's simply too many steps and distractions from the moment of inspiration to when it's captured. With WireTap there's only one step, or rather one stomp. Press record and start playing, WireTap will take care of the rest right there on your pedalboard.
Becoming a great songwriter takes work and dedication, but that doesn't mean you can't work smarter to get to the good songs faster. The free WireTap app lets you do just that. When you've captured your ideas on the pedal, simply sync it up with the app via Bluetooth to transfer your riffs and sketches to your phone. You can also use the app as a high-quality standalone recorder for capturing quick ideas on the go. From there you can tag, name, group, trim and share your riffs in the app, giving you a structured and highly efficient workflow. The distance from rough riff to finished song of awesomeness has never been shorter.
WireTap Riff Recorder is the perfect example of how quality and quantity don't have to be mutually exclusive. This tiny pedal offers more than 8 (!!!) hours of recording time, all stored in glorious 24-bit uncompressed audio for you to work on later in your DAW of choice or in the WireTap App. So say goodbye to voice recording apps and hand-held recorders that constantly clip and run out of space, and say hi to your new favorite songwriting partner.
