    Hey All,

    I need a looper for my acoustic pedalboard but it has to be
    1) small
    2) Able to control Loop Volume from a foot pedal (FV5 or anything)
    3) Has to have undo

    Yes, I have a L6M9, won't fit, and a Rang III same problem.......

    Even RC2/3 functionality would be fine but I have to be able to control volume with a pedal. Thought about the flashback (has the kill dry thing) and I could build a 2:1 unity gain mini mixer but I don't think flashback has undo........

    Am I missing something??? Cost no object, only size :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Vox Dynamic Looper? Not very small.

    You could mod an RC-2 or RC-3 or a Jamman Solo.

    You could Gibson Echoplex it? With all the crazy stuff that can get up to, I'm sure an expression pedal can be used, and it'd be off board.

    The Vox one is certainly interesting.........
    I like the idea but have some doubts about effect and sound quality. Size wise it is pretty big and heavy (more than 5 lbs). If it come somehow unseat my Zen drive, looper and expression pedal it has some merit.........

    I opened up the RC2 to look at modding it and I worry that the volume knobs are not analog. If they are digital encoders then game over for modding. I tried measuring them for resistance and sweep and they mad no sense. It could also be an extreme taper that would be hard to match externally. Pity cause it would be so easy to wire this to the stop jack...............

    What about the Timeline with an expression pedal??

    The Strymon El Capistan in Sound on Sound mode could work.

    You can control any of the parameters with an expression pedal (I use an exp pedal to control the repeats/feedback when in SOS mode).

    It doesn't have an Undo feature as such though - only the ability to splice into a current loop or erase it...
