Iīm going with the individual items idea. I really
ainīt got the time to try a laptop system, although that sure might have its
The purpose of question at first was really
to have info from you guys who own or have owned and performed live with
models like RC-20, RC-20XL, JamMan, Boomerang, Akai Headrush....the standard
units, cause Iīll probably go for one of these. Also, itīd be so cool learning
with you people who have performed with a DJ, in a "live" experience. That would
really make clear which features can not fail, or must be reliable at
See, at this point itīs about getting the
coolest/best individual unit, so that I can perform a very reliable/creative gig
with the DJ community and/or a stand alone act - have in mind I would go for the
RC-50 before reading web reviews about it, so itīs not all about saving a few
Also, the DD-20 and LINE 6 DL4, I wouldnīt consider
using them as a looper unit, as I think itīd be a limited choice for a serious
looper. Now thinking it as a delay unit, again from you actual or past
owners, what about the features, sound quality, ease of use of each one,
which is the best?

Subject: Re: ...what to go for
Have we ever discussed the difference
between a looper and a long delay? Methinks a looper can store a few audio
loops, can start, stop, restsart and/or continue on command, and can
"undo" one or more levels of looping. A long delay won't do these things, but
will have a feedback function so loops can fade away as new material is added.
Any more differentiating features?
I ask this because I'm reading this
thread, thinking, Boss DD-20! Boss DD-20! Makes a great looper! (except
it doesn't do those "looper" things mentioned above)

Subject: ...what to go for then?
Iīm also new to this community, been playing
guitar for 15 years now and have been invited by some DJs to perform live
with them. Obviously I need a looper, and I was just about to go and get a
RC-50 , but that was before I read reviews on harmony-central,
musiciansfriend.com, loopers delight, etc.....I was excited about going
stereo, having 3 phrase tracks, such long recording time......bla, bla,
bla...........but as I would have it mainly for live performances, just put
it aside for this moment.
RC-20XL is mono, seems to degrade sound quality
as more phrases are added onto previous recorded ones, has the 2 seconds
pressed pedal waiting time to change recording/dubbing functions......sounds
not pro enough.
Also read a lot about some little issues on
Digitech JamMan, Boomerang, Electro Harmonix 2880, etc.......even the Gibson
Echoplex Digital ProPlus got bad reviews.
Sincerely....I got lost in the middle of
everything, so it got cloudy for me to define what should I buy at this
moment, what will give me condition for a reliable and creative live
performance, and also be a smart option regarding the cost X benefit X
technology X quality issue.
Counting on your expertise
people....thanks a lot.
