about 1/3 the cost of the new H7600. with the Eventide you have to set
up your own looping patch if you have some real specific shit to do,
though i'm sure Italo's looping presets are great (probably even what
Bob Fripp is using right now). with the Looperlative you have to set up
your own interface, whereas in the Eventide you can have a few controls
you prefer immediately on the front.
the Looperlative does things which are really tricky in the Eventide,
like half speed, reverse, etc ... however the Eventide will let you do
really crazy shit like put pitch or frequency shift in the feedback
loop which you can't do with the Looperlative (because it lacks the FX
loop i think it should have).
different tools for different jobs. i'm still a little up in the air,
if Eventide had more specific looping algorithms i probably would have
stronger feelings one way or the other.
i can't afford this for awhile so it doesn't really matter for me right
now. however a comparison of pricey looping solutions without actually
bitching about the money part is always fascinating. maybe others here
have some things to say about it.
