Re: Guidance In Buying First Loop Machine
I'm not aware of any device that meets all those criteria for around
$600. Which of the features (stereo, delay time, reverse, save loop
functions, pricepoint) might you be willing to move on? The closest
hardware solution is, I believe, the Repeater, but it's out of
production and usually goes for more than $600 at this point. The
Repeater II is vaporware at this point.
