This pedal allows you to integrate on-the-fly recording into your rig, with modern wireless connectivity features to simplify both recording, file transfer, storage and organization of musical ideas.

TC Electronic understands the importance of capturing inspiration and ideas as they happen, and while there are already a myriad of options to go about doing this, the company thought that having one that can be both portable and integrated to a pedalboard would be practical and effective. And so they came up with the TC Electronic WireTap Riff Recorder, packing the latest technology that the company can in a compact pedal that’s easy to use and requires little pedalboard space.

Described by the company as a must-have tool for serious songwriters, this pedal will ensure that you never lose inspiration ever again. This means that you won’t have to rely on your sketchy memory to store catchy melodies and interesting riff ideas, and you also don’t have to rely on other low-quality audio options like recording through the mic of your phone.

The design of the WireTap Riff Recorder is very straightforward, to ensure that you don’t get distracted as new musical ideas flow. It will be hard to miss the three prominent buttons that let you play and cycle through the riffs you’ve recorded. Holding the play button also doubles as the delete button, keeping the front fascia simple and intuitive. The footswitch works as the record button, so instead risking losing ideas by having to pullout your phone or other recording devices, all you need to do is to step on the footswitch to safely capture them as they come.

Another important factor to consider is how and where to store your precious song ideas. To make this process as streamlined as possible, TC Electronic equipped this pedal with enough memory to hold up to 8 hours of recording, which should be more than enough to not only store, but also carry around your baby riffs should you want to listen and play with them.

More importantly, they equipped the pedal with Bluetooth connectivity, allowing you to easily transfer recorded ideas to your smartphone or tablet for storage and organization. The company even developed a free companion Android and iOS app that will let you edit the recordings, in case you want to trim them. The app will also let you tag, name and group recordings conveniently, so you can quickly spot specific riffs. And since the pedal records in 24-bit audio quality format, the ideas are clear and pleasant to hear, without any unwanted background noise and the like.

The MSRP for the TC Electronic WireTap Riff Recorder is $99.99, for further details, you can head over to TC Electronic.
