Which Looper to Employ (was Repeater or EDP)

I have been buying lots of delay pedals since discovering this site four
years ago!  And currently have two EDPS--but here's the deal . . .
I have the opportunity to play out (gig) here in my home town of San Diego
with various musicians, usually completely unrehearsed, many times using
battery powered amps. I have found the RC-20 to be useful in these
situations, in a way no other looper in my collection can match.  No loop
windowing or feedback, tho--
Look at what KT Tunstall does with a Headrush!
Job's requirements point toward a Repeater--
I don't think anyone can go wrong with an Echoplex Digital Pro--but
Nemoguitt does quite well with a Boomerang--Stanitarium has a huge number 
loopers, but I think he usually plays out with the Lexicon PCM delay.  Rick
Walker has a Repeater and and EDP, but usually winds up using the DL-4 for
lots of his looping.
If Kaki King is using an RC-20, imagine what an EDP would do for her!
PS  When is Warren Sirota's software looper going to see the light of day?
Any reviews from his performance at Y2K4?

Just my two cents worth..

if money is tight...as a starter you might consider getting the BOSS RC20XL

for less than a quarter of the cost of EDP -

its a lot of fun..and if you upgrade later to the EDP/repeater...fine!..I
think you will still enjoy also having the portability and 
of the Boss - as a toy ; )
