Ed uses a custom loop station called The Chewie Monsta. We have a replica we call The Chewie Imposta.
The Chewie Monsta works as a giant remote control. Ed’s looper is actually a program called Ableton Live, that runs a software that allows him to loop audio recorded into the laptop. This is then played back in real time, and can be overdubbed an played ontop of. It’s kind of like having a band at your feet.
We couldn’t call ourselves authentic if we didn’t have a replica of exactly the same system. Ed’s live show is looping, and without the same loop station the sound isn’t the same. With The Ed Sheeran Illusion, every loop layer of every song is replicated with an immense level of detail. That’s what makes us the most authentic Ed tribute in the UK and Ireland.
