But if you overdub record into the same loop there is no such 
limitation with the Repeater.

Regarding the EDP I just want to mention its unique capability to slice 
audio input and insert quantized chunks into the spinning loop. No 
other machine or software I know of can do this in real-time. As 
demonstrated in this audio example using three live sound sources: (1) 
electric guitar, (2) EDP and (3) drum loops. 

Job, I tend to agree with Stephen that since you want to prepare loops 
in advance the Repeater is the better choice. It can also time-stretch 
to match different tempi which the EDP can't. The EDP has more the 
character of an instrument to be played.
