    I'm considering purchasing the RC-2 because of it's small footprint, features and the price is right as well.

    Anybody have any experience with this particular looper, and if so, what did you like/dislike about it's operation, sound and real world applications?

    Any advice is very appreciated.

    I love it. I use it for loops/noise in b/w songs. I pre-program bass notes so I can trigger it while I'm playing something else.
    Easy to use (once you read the manual and practice it), 16 minutes of recording time, 3/4 or 4/4 click (or other corny beats) for practicing or recording in time, and most importantly: when you alter a prerecorded loop's tempo, the pitch does not change! ipod jack in back so you can throw on songs, etc.

    I leave it at the very end of my chain, right after my tuner. I mute out and tune while the looper plays whatever I tell it to.

    Best $170 I ever spent.

    I'd also check out the Digitech Hardwire delay/looper too. Similar size, lower price - but might have more delay features at the expense of looping abilities.

    The RC-2 does not have any delay or special features built into it.

    If also want to mention that you can do an infinite loop on the fly w/ the ability to overdub infinitely or cancel and you also have the option to just make a loop play just once (must be prerecorded).
