I never post here but enjoy reading...
my set up is a fernandes native pro-a pod xt live- a korg sdd2000 a
ips 33b (pitch shifter/whammy)- line 6 dl4 to digitech jamman - vox ac30
I love the line6 dl4 as it offers octave+/- pitch shifting and looping-
you know what i have often felt that many a good loop was lost
don't see anything wrong with the digitech for my needs!!!!
I capture a loop live while playing in the line6 I transfer over the
first/or overdubbed loop to the jamman's memory (I can determine whether
keep or save on computer let alone onbaord memory) and then I can loop the
jamman and play over the top. Is my set up perfect no...would the edp or
repeater mk2 be better, possible- but I see a real need for this pedal and
if you guys continue to slag it off a) it makes my set up cooler b) it
digitech offer an even better mk 2 jamman.
You are right themaufacturer didn't consult the looping community enough,
but the loop landscape looks more populated, and more affordable than ever
before- maybe this is a new "start point" (pun intended) enjoy what you
have, and don't be miserable about what you (or digitech or roland )
my 2 cents
