OVERVIEW

Record straight from your pedal board.

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.


Perfect Pedal Memory
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, it's gone! We take notes, use voice recording apps, etc., 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 pedal board.

Work Smarter
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.

No Compromise on Quality and Quantity
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 eight 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.

Comments about TC Electronic WireTap Riff Recorder Guitar Effect Pedal:

Just recently got this pedal from MF. This thing is tiny I love that it doesn't eat up a bunch of realistate on my pedalboard. I have been using the free Wiretap app for a couple months before I got the pedal and having the pedal expands the options for the app. I have been recording open air riffs and song ideas on my phone using the app and the sound quality using the pedal is a big step up. I love the naming a organizing feature in the app. Makes finding and cataloging ideas so much easier. Something that not a lot of people talk about is the ability to re-amp your recorded riffs. Very useful way to tweak amp sounds or effects. Simply record your riff dry then run it through different amps or emulators to get different sounds. Using the pedal I can record an idea, upload it to my phone, and share it via text or email with my band mates. A few things to keep in mind with this pedal: this is not a traditional looper although you can loop recorded ideas with it, while you can upload riffs to your phone you cannot download ideas from your phone to the pedal, even ones you may have recorded with the app open air, the volume meter starts once the record feature is engaged so you won't know if you are peaking until it is already recording. Those things out of the way, this is a great tool for saving riffs and ideas.

    Comments about TC Electronic WireTap Riff Recorder Guitar Effect Pedal:

    Excellent technology. Sound quality is excellent if you don't overload the pedal. It seems a little sensitive to louder signals and there is no way to attenuate the pedal. The app is awesome however a little buggy immediately after recording to the pedal. The sound file doesn't show up immediately. A simple restart of the app makes the file appear. Wish the input meter on the app worked before you hit record so you could adjust your volume before recording. Bluetooth seems very stable between pedal and iphone 6. Transfer of files from pedal to phone quick and easy.

      Comments about TC Electronic WireTap Riff Recorder Guitar Effect Pedal:

      Works as described and very easy to use. Sound is reproduced identical to original. I like it so far but it doesn't take batteries and I don't like using adapters (none included) so I rigged a battery connection to use via the adapter pin and it works great. Also, no usb cable included to transfer data to computer although I've not tried the blue tooth yet.
