Critter and Guitari introduces 5 Moons Portable Multi-track Recorder and Looper

Critter and Guitari looks to carve out a niche in the standalone music production space.

Critter and Guitari has introduced 5 Moons, a mobile multi-track recorder and looper. It is designed to be simple, easy to use and portable.

5 Moons could be the wooden multitrack recorder and looper that is missing from your life. This unassuming wooden box is in fact a five-channel multitrack recorder with looping and bounce-down functions. So, although you can use it in a linear manner if you wish, the real creative boon might come when you start looping and layering.

There is no screen – just plug in, hit the record button and you’re off. Once you’ve created five tracks you can bounce these down to a single track in a new song, giving you a further four tracks to work with. Bounce down again and you’ve got another four tracks; you can repeat this process as many times as you like, effectively giving you an infinite number of tracks.

A USB-C port provides power and data transfer, and controls comprise just volume sliders, some buttons and a master output knob. An 8GB microSD card contains the operating system and is used for storage – around 20 hours of recording time. Input is on 1/8-inch monophonic jack and the output is the same. Recordings are made at 16-bit/48kHz.
