What phrase sampler to start with? Any recomendations, experience?
I hear that the Boss RC50 is fine
What kind of things do you want it for?
There is a better one that uses mp3's and stuff but its pretty pricey
I'm pretty happy with my RC-20xl. It only plays one loop at a time but that's plenty for me. If I'd known about it I might have gotten the Akai Headrush because it doubles as a delay and is a little simpler to use, or the Stereo Memory Man With Hazarai which can be a delay and a looper at the same time. The Boss DD7 has a loop function, I don't know how easy it it to work. The RC-2 is like the RC-20 with one less pedal so you have to double stomp.
Have you searched?
I like my RC-2...it also has built in drum loops so you can use it as a practice tool as well...
just stay away from the digigtech jamman - it is not reliable, my unit went back to the shop for repairs 2 times and they still didn´t fix one issue where the loop level suddenly jumps from 0 to a quarter of max when you turn up the pot.
For the price, you can't beat it...It has just enough time for looping (16 mins of storage). Recording to the click takes a little time, but you can get used to it.
Also, do a quick search on here. We've talked about which looper is best a few times over...Best of luck! Let know your thoughts and what acquisitions you make!
I just picked up a Line6 DL4.
Awesome little device.
boss rc-20XL is absolutely incredible.
all you need to know how to use it is litterally written on the pedal..
Another vote for the Boss RC-20XL.
The boomerang sucks your tone like no other. Don't buy it!
Thanks for replies! I just wanted to know what is available on a market.
Im also using a Boss RC-20XL. Its easy to use, has the features you would expect and is reliable and solid. Its the only looper I have owned, but I have never really needed to look anywhere else since getting it.
I had a quick go on an RC-2 in my local shop for interests sake. It was ok, but being used to the RC-20XL, I found the RC-2 to be a bit 'compact' for my liking.
I've seen more players with an RC-20 than anything else...even when the players have a DL4.
EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE A DL4!
That being said, I had a DL4 and used it on bass and wasn't impressed with the tone but loved it's functionality. it is a great tool, but if you want a dedicated looper, the RC-20 and Akai Headrush have a lot more support in the circles I've been in and the other players I've spoken with.
I'm curious about the new Line6 Looper. It's software upgradeable and looks like a great flexible unit.
anyone know anything about it?
