'Morning. For a few weeks now, Ive been tinkering with the idea of getting a looper to complete my set-up. I cant say I will be a big looper meister, but I do see it being a benefit. What I want ? A second track on certain songs so I play something over it. Is that want going to evolve into something else later ? Maybe, but how can I really say at this point ? I had it narrowed it down to the Boss RC-3 (quelle surprize ). But the more I look at it, the more I get the feeling that this thing is overkill when compared to my basic need. Sure, it can store up to 3 hours of tracks (practically a whole gig-load of second tracks), loadem in a computer, provide rhythm patterns and I can probably get it to do breakfast at the same time. But on a good day, I can make my own eggs & bacon, so Im probably not going to need most of these features. In the last few days, I have been looking at little closer at Bosss DD-7. Again, as with most effects, I dont use delay all that much, but I season some parts with it occasionally. I find its different modes interesting, particularly the analog, modulate and of course hold modes, which I assume is the looper function. Im also intrigued by a few settings, such as room ambiance sound and doubling. It seems quite easy to use (more than the RC-3): step on the pedal once to start recording and once to stop and it starts the playback immediately. In mono, it has 40 seconds of looping capability, which seems plenty for me. Having a pedal going multiple-duty is not new for me: I also use the Digitech BSW and Marshall RG-1 up and they both do a fine live job. Im using a small pedalboard with its 9v power supply and want to stay within those parameters. Ive looked a bit at the Digitech Hardwire DL-8, but it has 20 seconds of looping. Anybody else went through this ? What did you end up doing ? (Sorry for the long post, but as you can see, I've been giving this a bit of thought).
