Looperlative Questions

Hello fellow loopists,


I’ve been considering taking the plunge on an LP-1 and I wonder if someone with experience can answer a few questions?


I’m currently using DL-4 and an RC-20, which I consider to be stagnant loopers, so I’m looking forward to the controllable feedback in the LP.


If one uses an FCB-1010 floorboard with the LP-1, can a drum machine/sampler/sequencer be triggered on and off by programming one of the buttons on the floorboard? I know the two pedals onboard can be used as feedback control (0% to 100%) and volume control. Correct me if I’m wrong…


And can other MIDI devices be connected to work in conjunction with the drum machine and LP-1? Say, like my Lexicon MPX-110 and a Vortex, or any of the Eventide floor pedals like the ModFactor? Eclipse (rack mounted)?


Besides those questions, how difficult is the overall learning curve on the LP? I know some of you here have done quite well with it. I recall an article in Guitar Player said that he was up and running (perhaps with basic commands, rec, overdub, send, etc.) in a short time.


Oh, yeh one more thing…can the LP-1 be compared to the upcoming Boomerang III in any way? Ease of use? Programmability? Functions?


Anyway, thanks in advance for your answers…you can post them here or email me privately…
