I happened across a used Digitech Time Machine (4 second delay) for 149.00 at a local guitar store that features used equipment. I long to join the ranks of loopers but can't spare the cash for a more current looping device. Recently saw a Vortex for $287 at a local music store but that still seems somewhat out of my range. I play as a form of stress management (lights dimmed, kids in bed, maybe a candle or two). So my questions are Can I create a loop or an infinite repeat with a time machine? Is the time machine a valid entry point for creating a sort of meditative atmospheric music. The clerk tried to steer me to a digital delay pedal ($125 with maybe 800 or 1600ms delay) as opposed to the the time machine. He described the time machine as more appropriate for recording booth usage although that appears to go against the discussions that I've seen in the loopers delight archive. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanx!
