    I have a list of stuff i'd like to get, and a looper is in there, which one will allow me to, in a live situation, lay down a bass line, play chords on top of it, and then solo over the two?

    Recording and storing ease of use isn't a major thing but would be nice.

    Pedal form, no rack stuff.

    Oh, and i'd like to be able to cut out and replace a layer when i want to. Can those ones do that?

    Just one layer ? I don't know. I think the RC20 can only erase the last layer. The other, I don't know.

    Both the RC-20XL (not the original RC-20) and the Digitech Jam Man will let you undo the last overdub when looping. Neither supports feedback (adjustable decay), so everything stays at the level you loop it at. The JamMan has the upper hand for computer connectivity and storage, and the interface seems nicer. I haven't heard one. I do use an original RC-20 and think that it has about the best sound I have heard in a pedal looper. My gut says that the Digitech unit sounds pretty good too.

    The JamMan manual can be downloaded directly from the digitech website. It answered most of my questions. IMHO, I think that pedal's got the most features in the $300 mark. I'm saving my pennies for one. :)
