For looping I currently use Ableton Live, controlled by a footswitch (when playing bass) or a small controller. I would like to find an alternative that I can use without taking my laptop along and having to run everything through the laptop. I currently use the B3 for simple practice, but it is a little "sparse". I have been looking around, and while the RC-300 look great, it is more than I am willing to spend on this, and it is also huge (as in, it is bigger than my current pedal + laptop!). I am thinking that the best option is going to be the Boss RC-30 or the Jamman Stereo. Based on reviews I have watched/read, I am thinking that the Boss is the better option since they fixed the lag issue. However, as always, I would like some input from those of you that use pedal loopers (I know there are a few of you ) as to what you would reccommend. My needs are: - Less than $300 - Microphone input - Minimum 2 channels - Possibility to import/export loops - Loop start/record sync (not sure what the proper name for this would be, but that is starts on the correct beat even if you press the button 1/2 second early). - Midi sync would be a plus but not necessary. - Simple functionality would be a plus! Opinions?
