Re: Looping w/battery power hopes/concerns

I have to say any guitar singal is not something you would want layers and
layers of....Then again I enjoy creating contrast in loops with alot of
stomp boxes.  I think I am the only player here who does really use a racks
set-up(aside from 2 knob based ones).

If one adaptor was OK, I would say the Yamaha magic stomp, as it is the 
floor multi I have for reverbs and delays.  But, for one without a
adaptor.....well, there are none I would suggest.  All the decent ones are
AC only(unless something comes to mind later).  what about a small pedal
rig?  Like a Reverb or 2, analog delay, digital delay, and a couple
modulation effects?  Maybe a PitchShifter as well?

aside from that, there is the Boss ME series.  I am not sure if the ME-50
works of battery power(if it does, that is my multieffect selection).  Oh,
there is also the Digitech RP series, and a few can be battery powered I
