I've tried to foot tap tempo with the JamMan, the Repeater and 
different software but I never liked it. The best method I have come 
around is to use some device like the EDP that can extract tempo from 
two different taps. What I do is to redefine the loop length in the EDP 
and everything that is hooked up by midi clock to my EDP (Repeater, 
laptop, loopers, effects) will also start following the new tempo. To 
it's much easier to foot tap a musical period than hitting every damn 
eight note beat with my toe.  That is at the same time as also playing 
and listening to other players ;-)
