Product Description

Ploytec Boom Kick

As soon as you tap the right foot switch, BOOM KICK is activated and awaits another tap within 2 seconds. During this time, the LED flashes blue. Right after the second "tap", BOOM KICK starts making sounds on every crotchet. The BOOM KICK calculates the tempo with the time between the two taps on the pedal and bases the calculation on quarter notes. Example: if there is one second between the two taps, this would equal 60bpm: 60 beats per minute. Half a second means 120bpm, 2 seconds 30bpm.... The pedal is able to sync on quarter notes (even if the tempo is correct) to keep the phase. Via its MIDI Clock output it keeps loopers and drum machines in sync, too.
