Looping Discussions and Comparisons (Was Re: unsubscribe)

Title: Looping Discussions and Comparisons (Was Re: unsubscribe)
Hi Robert, there are two websites, one related specifically to this list, and one more generally about looping:


and this one:


THis mailing list is sort of an 'old boys network' or like a neighborhood bar.  The future is in the websites.

I'm a newbie, and I don't know much about this group, but maybe people are unsubscribing because this listserv isn't what they thought it would be.
I know that I've been surprised since signing up a few days ago that there hasn't been much discussion about and comparison of actual looper models. Guess that's a pretty newb topic.
Also, my question (below) hasn't been answered yet.
I'm looking for a recommendation for a looping pedal that I'll use for live solo shows.
I need something high-end that lets me not just simply build on top of short loops, but also allows me to drop tracks in and out, and to switch between an A part and B part (verse to chorus, for example). Basically, I want a pedal that will allow me to play entire songs (in the vein of Radiohead/Sigur Ros/Boards of Canada) alone and with a minimum of pre-recording.
I'm currently looking at a few things: a Boss RC-50, Echoplex Digital Pro, Abelton software (I'd bring a laptop onstage and trigger it with footpedals), or a combo of pedals that can be synched together. Currently I own a Line DL-4, which got me hooked on looping but which has become very limited very quickly.
Any recommendations what would work best for my needs? I can't get these items here in Korea, so I need to be sure about what I'm getting before I have it shipped over.
