I e-mailed the folks at line-6 last week about a release date and a suggested retail price... they didn't have an answer for either. just figured i'd try and save you some gas before you drive to a REAL guitar store. looks like we'll have to wait for the release of the release date :-) jack ken m wrote: I'm on the hunt for a good sampler now.. I've decided to back shelf my plans for using my computer as a real-time DSP (Mainly because I've spent the last 2 weeks trying out many MaNy MANY mAnY many so-called real-time software packages that just made me sick listening to..) I've been hearing debates over the Boomerang / Headrush / Zoom 2100 - but I don't see anyone giving their thoughts on the Line-6 DL4 stomp box. Has anyone tried one of these little green monsters? (off-topic interesting fact: In Dutch, the word Monster means Sample.) I am unfortunately in the situation where NONE of the guitar shops in my area have ANY of these units for me to try out, so I need to gather as much information as I can before taking a drive a couple hours down the road to the nearest REAL guitar shop. How I love Connecticut <Sigh>. I'm itchin to start looping! My trio needs something to fill in the empty .... spaces ... And I think a looper / sampler combined with my E-Bow should be a nice combo.
