Re: Looping-newbie looking for suggestions :)

Hi Jesper,

Here's a page with good info on most looping devices: 
http://www.loopers-delight.com/tools/tools.html. AFAIK the EDP has the 
best midi implementation (for hardware based loopers) but if it is 
"overkill" only you can answer. If you intend to stay around the newbie 
user level it is certainly overkill but if you intend to learn more on 
looping you will probably want to get an EDP anyway ;-)

For some of your questions there are long and detailed answers to be 
found at the Looper's Delight Mailing List Archive,
