I've been gettin' the itch for a looper pedal lately, and I've been trying to figure out which one might be best for using with a band. It seems like 99% of the demo videos of looper pedals are some dude in his bedroom layering ambient noises. While that's cool and all, I really want something that will be easy to use live, with a band. As of right now I'm considering the Boss RC-3 (or RC-2), JamMan Solo, Digitech Hardwire Delay, and the Line6 DL4. As much as it pains me to say it, it seems like Line6 actually designed a great looper for live use. I haven't been able to put the Boss or JamMan units through the paces very well, as they are mounted on the stupid display stands at my local GC which inhibits me from actually stomping on them to create loops! I've watched demo videos though, and both seem pretty cool. My main concern is finding one that is easy to get "in the pocket" with. If the switching is cumbersome, I could envision some -very- frustrating moments onstage while your out-of-sync loop gets repeated over and over and over. I'd love to hear from players who use their loopers in this context, and are able to stay in sync with the band. I'm really not into the whole ambient soundscapes type of looping... while some of it sounds cool, I just don't "get" why some of those guys on youtube are obsessed with endlessly layering volume swells. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!
