What gear is required to follow this masterclass?
To follow this course you will need the following equipment:

Essential:
- A loop station, with an XLR (microphone) input.
- A decent quality microphone of any brand, with a stand.
- An XLR (microphone) cable.
- A pair of headphones or an amplifier to connect to your loop station’s output.

Recommended:
- Because there is a section on sculpting your instruments with EQ (equalization), a mixer desk with EQs on each channel is desirable.
- Because there is a section about FX (effects), owning pedals (octaver, delay, reverb, etc.) is also desirable, especially if they are similar to Jeremy’s. (Note that you will receive a full list of Jeremy’s gear as part of the course.)

Optional:
Additional instruments other than your handpan (e.g. cajon, keyboard, jaw harp, or any other instrument).
What type of loop station will Jeremy be demonstrating and performing with?
In this masterclass, Jeremy will exclusively be using Boss loop stations, namely the RC-30, the RC-50 (now replaced by the RC300) and the RC-505. He considers these to be the most ergonomic plug’n’play units for percussionists. For instance, they have a microphone input with phantom power, which is not the case for many loop stations. Also, Boss loop stations are used around the world, allowing people everywhere to share advice and experience.
I don’t have the same loop station as Jeremy. Is this course still for me?
Though a few buttons and features may be different on your loop station, almost all loop stations have similar characteristics and workflow, and you should be able to follow the entire course. As most of the operations demonstrated and described are the same on all loopers, Jeremy’s masterclass will give you a deeper understanding of how to refine your sound and build beautiful tracks.
