I have the Digitech, and it has one major problem (a few others on this
list have concurred:) it drifts sharp in the infinite repeat mode.  I'd
stick with the Zoom 508, unless you want to spend $139.95 on the Zoom 2100,
which does nearly everthing the Digitech does (but in tune), with a
6-second maximum loop, and a 16 second sampler that loops a single part (32
seconds in lo-fi mode.)
