I'm trying to decide between these two loopers. Probably use live either solo or with a drummer at some point. Want to be able to hook up electric guitar and effects pedals, microphone and maybe a drum machine (midi synced). And I want to be able to patch the output to guitar amp and pa/monitors and be able to route my electric guitar/pedals to my guitar amp and the microphone/drum machine to pa. I'm pretty sure the RC50 can do all that but I question its sound quality and I keep reading about several issues like it being useless with tempo or pitch changes. I also read that the RC20XL has noise issues and wonder if the RC50 also has them. I also like that the RC50 seems to be able to transition from 1 phrase to another (ie verse to chorus) and back. The 2880 looks cool and fun to use (as long as I have the foot controller too) but I question whether it has the routing options of the RC50 and it doesn't look like it would be easy to switch between phrases unless I devote a verse to one fader and a chorus to another fader and then somehow adjust faders on the fly. But I'm hopefully overlooking something. That said certain technical limitations might force me to work around it and find a creative way to make it work for me. I'm kind of preferring the layout of the 2880 and footpedal for being creative. I'm concerned about reliability of the ehx though. Thoughts? Experiences? Insults? Stlusni? Secneirepxe? Sthguoht?
