    I have a BOSS RC-20XL which I love. I tried a Boomerang but the RC-20XL is cheaper and easier to use because it addresses human error:

    1. It has a quantisize function that compensates for minor human variances in starting and stopping looping.

    2. It has an "undo" function. Great if you make a mistake mid0way thru a performance.

    The features I find essential are;
    1. Redo: the opposite of the undo above. Great to take the last section out of a loop and the reinsert later.

    2. Two channels. I run my bass through one channel and keyboard thru another

    3. Multiple memories. I think 11. I have sound events recorded that I trigger during songs

    4. basic drum machine. I find this useful for practcicing
