Like previous Electrix products, Repeater ($749 retail) is a two-rackspace unit that will also sit angled up at you on any worksurface. The front panel has the familiar "tape deck" transport with Stop, Play, Record and Reverse (instant backward playback) buttons. A large LED shows what's going on at all times, and there are rotary Loop and Tempo controllers for selecting loops and editing parameters. The rear panel has 1/4-inch, -10dBv stereo jacks for line inputs and RCAs for CD players and turntables. There is a front instrument jack for plugging in guitars or synths and a headphone monitor out. Stereo outputs include L/R analog line mix outs and a 16-bit/44.1kHz S/PDIF coax digital out. There are no digital audio inputs, but analog stereo ins/outs are provided for inserting effects into any track. Three MIDI jacks with a rotary MIDI channel selector handles the extensive MIDI implementation. Lastly, there is a footswitch jack that works with a DigiTech FS-300 3-button pedal for undo, play/stop and record functions.
