Look, No Hands!

The MX5 features a convenient "hands free" edit mode which allows you to adjust any parameter mid-song without having to stop playing and bend down to make the changes. Simply select the model that you want to adjust, select the parameter, and then use the built-in expression pedal to fine-tune your settings! Simple! The expression pedal is also fully assignable within each preset and can be used as a volume or a wah wah pedal in addition to tweaking preset parameters.

Record and Reamp

With built in USB connectivity, the MX5 can be can be used as a 24-bit 96 kHz audio interface for intuitive recording and reamping, making it a versatile asset in your recording environment. The reamp option enables you to add the tone colouration of an amp to a pre-recorded audio signal - in this case, sending audio from your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) through the HeadRush MX5 and then recording it back into your DAW. This modern, time saving recording process allows you to tweak the sound of your pre-recorded guitar part afterwards, rather than having to re-record it!

Each loop has a maximum length of five minutes and can hold up to twenty minutes of layered audio at a time.
