    I know that a loop cannot be made with the JamMan unless it is at least 3.5 seconds long. Is this also true of the Boss unit?

    Thanks,

    I don't know if it's true, but just keep in mind that you can play the loop more than once while recording.

    I'm just saying that because i'm just hoping that's not a deciding factor or something.

    the boss also has to be around a certain time. I don't know the exact duration, but it's somewhere around 3 seconds.

    *note* this is with my boss rc20, not the rc20xl

    ditto. My RC20 has this delay. AFAIK my 20XL does too. I'll check that when I use it next. You can test it by starting and stopping the loop quickly and watching for the loop to actually end. It is 2 or 3 secs on the RC20.
