You probably realise this, but it's worth pointing out that the XL
version of the RC-20 sorts out quite a few of the UI problems of the
earlier model.

You can increment and decrement through the loops with a footswitch
now (any dual footswitch with momentary action and a 1/4" TRS jack
will do), and any of the loops can be single or repeating.

The XL is often reviewed as just a bigger memory version of the RC-20,
but Boss did fix quite a few little niggles with the second version.
