Re: Any Ideas for a Second Looper, possibly a Jamman


Thanks for the reply. Actually, my drums are acoustic, no pads or  
midi. I realize the sound quality of trying to loop most of the kit  
would be poor, but I am thinking even if I mic just the kick drum or  
I also have a pedal steel and some other instruments spread around the  
room, so it would be nice to have the extra looper and like you said,  
avoid too much madness with the everything going through the EDP.
