  1. Mike,

    Have you tried the Line6 DL4? How would you say it compares to the Boomerang.

    Can you tell me about the things you like and dislike about the Boomerang?

    I've only tied the DL-4 in the store for a limited time, so I cannot make a comparison. About the 'rang

    built like a tank
    good customer support (Mike Nelson actually called me at a gig, when I had a problem)
    "A" and "B" loops for verse and chorus. B loop can play once only if you want it to.
    Infinite loops with no time degradation
    Great live tool

    no undo (each loop adds to the last) if you make a mistake your stuck with it. This can alos be a pro - it keeps you on your toes and your concentration level up
    Not studio quality sound. The sampling rate does not really do just to slapped lines
    I really do not like the input trim knob - it tends to be in a place where it can move to easily
    buttons are extremely sensitive - last night my cord hit the reverse button and I my loop was going backwards
    cannot pre-record loops or save loops

    I've mentioned how much I love the 'rang. I am trying to be honest about the pros and cons but I do feel that the pros far outweigh any cons
