RE: WHAT DON'T YOU LIKE ABOUT YOUR LOOPER(S)
I use the dl4 just for the delay models, in stereo with an expression
fed into 2 EDPs. I like it a lot just for the delay models, particularly
I wish that it had a more reliable tap tempo though, and quieter switches.
second expression pedal out would be cool as well.

"Of all the people I know who use this unit, only 2 use the
delay modelers more than the looper."
Frankly, I don't know ANYONE who uses the DL-4 as a delay modeller
unless it's in conjunction with another DL:-4 as a looper, but then
again, we both tend to hang out with musicians who are really 'out of the
and who are very, very creative.
The guy at Line 6 practically laughed at me when I started talking to him
adding features at NAMM several years ago. He said the looping function
just thrown in as an afterthought and that it was guitar players who
for delays who made up 95% of their clientelle.
Now, it suddenly occurs to me, years later, that he was just sick and
with suggestions for improvements that one gets at NAMM and he was just
off, but who knows.
