I'm looking to pick one up to practice with. Any suggestions?
I have a Boss RC3 , I love it but its not the best for drum trax. A jam man or a ditto are both good too. Read the specs to see which one is better for you
same as Bob
I have a Digitech Jamman, the big one and it works like a charm. There are far simpler and easy to use pedals out there tho, ditto seems to be popular
I've been looking at this one. Any feedback on it?
Kokko FLP2 SOS looper pedal ebay around $35 new. Pretty much a clone of a Ditto Looper which is a good choice in the $100 range.
Another BOSS RC3 here...
TC Ditto X2 here, love it.
TC Ditto X4. One of a few that offer midi sync. It works flawlessly with my Beat Buddy pedal. It is big but if you ever think you will need that midisync, it is well worth it
A little more you could get a boomerang but that just seems like alot for me to spend on a looper
I am running the two pedal JamMan Loop station/Sampler too. It was a great investment for me.
I'm gonna watch this thread with interest! I was thinking of the same thing!
I've never even used a loop pedal.....no idea how it even works, that's how bad I am!
That's not bad. I had never really used one until just a couple months ago. I did have a Line 6 DL4 which has like 14 seconds of loop time but unless you are Howie Day you really can't do much with that.
Entering my 3rd week with the Trio +. I absolutely love it- got some pretty sophisticated bass and drum parts. Although Digitech and the guys from the Anderton's Guitar Paridiso Reviews show say to play very simple chords when "teaching" the device a new song, I play some fairly complex chords / inversions and syncopation's- the darn device follows me very well, even in learning mode! After selecting a bass / drum track to accompany your song / part, you can loop over it as complex / creatively as you want. Three different levels of bass (simple to complex lines) multiple genres and time signatures. Can record up to 5 songs, up to 5 parts to each song, 240 second loops.
You can get them with full Digitech Warranty on Reverb for $245.00. I hate to call it a "pedal" so I'll say the device is a lot of bang for the buck in my book.
I found the above review to be helpful. I'm still finding my way around all the functions / nuances, but the first time out of the box within an hour or so I had a solid "middle 8" down for a song I am writing. Played it for my wife and she was floored at the sound / quality.
Yeah a DAW and MIDI set up would no doubt be better, but as Mic said in the Paradiso review "I could work all week on a bass part for this [song he created on the fly] and still not get it as good..."
Lots of reviews out there but the above is one of the most informative IMO.
I intend to use the pedal to: work on parts for songs; give recorded songs to my band mates to learn and get ideas for parts; as a personal practice / development tool. With a good P.A. system I would not be ashamed to take some songs live with the Trio +.
Hope this helped. No affiliation- just enjoying the heck out of the Trio +!
Thanks Brian!!! This is awesome
This reminds me. The one thing ido have on my board, is a looper. The closest thing I have to one is on my Alter Ego X4. Looks like it's time to do some research.
I have RC1, just cause I had the chance to buy it from a local guy. It is very simple to use and does the job properly.
My dad gave me a boss rc20. I'm not very good but can fudge together simple loops so it cant be too hard to use!! Don't use it that much as the Mrs makes me keep all my gear in the cupboard!!
I've used & like the Ditto; also like the Boss RC-3. Also heard good things about (but haven't USED) a Looper Pedal from EchoPlex. They INVENTED "Sound on Sound" technology many years ago, using an Analog tape loop. I think the KEY is just "finding your way" with it; what WORKS for YOU. Hope this helps!
The Ditto (I have a X2) is amazingly transparent. I like it. No frills. Not for storing loads of preset loops, etc, etc.
