    I think this is going to be an extemely popular pedal. I know the RC-20XL is very versitle and fun. If this sells in the $100 range, it will be a no brainer.;)

    Cool - I'm looking for something just like that. Finally a reason to hit GC, I guess...

    No sampling rate in the specs, tho'. 16 minutes of non-volatile memory in a pedal that size? I wonder how it'll sound??

    Auchh - who cares.. I'm gettin' one!

    I'm a real sucker for slapping a hi-tech gizmo like this at end of a long string of old solid-state stompers..

    It looks pretty cool to me... the biggest thing in its favor is its small foot print. Of course, if you add the external footswitch, the footprint grows, but it's at least flexible... you can run the footswitch off your board, if you like.

    sorry if this is a silly question, but where do people place their loopers in their chain? is there a certain rule that people go by for placement?

    Most folks running your typical guitar footpedal setup will have the looper last, so they can use their other effects without having them effect the loop. More sophisticated loopers will run their looper(s) into a mixer and other effects so they can post process the loop.
