Re: sampler or looper? (roland sp555)

Cool. Though it has sat idle for quite a while, I really liked my  
SP-808 and looking at the face plate on this suggests that they've  
integrated that sort of functionality with a looper.

On the other hand, my confidence in Roland's ability to take a good  
idea and then screw it up in the final execution is high...
