It's harder to get accurately timed loops.
Most units you tap once to start recording the loop,
and again to end the loop (and start playback)
With the SMM you have to hold down the button for the length of the loop,
then release it accurately at the end.

It's quite involved to wipe a loop and record a new one.

...but for the low price, you could find out if you like looping.

if you really believe you need a rhythm guitar under your solo
then the problem is not the looper.
The problem is the the band has to play in time with your loop.

you can make big swooshy phase/flange sounds with the SMM if you know how.

It can also do analog delay type sounds (using the filter to make the 
repeats get darker).

Don't know how the Ibanez sounds tho'.
