That thing is amazing, I was looking at them a few years ago, before they had the 16 ch one, that is amazing, you could build a whole mixer out of two of those easy.
this is the ultimate audio patch bay with loads of MIDI control
LP1 only has two inputs and you will need to balance levels anyway...
Oooh, what if the LP1 could assign the two ins and six outs to be controlled ins or outs either one, nice!!!
I am thinking of getting a midi controlled patch bay, any recomendations?
control as guitar and bass preamps will build up hum in you inputs. LP1 only has two inputs and you will need to balance levels anyway...

Subject: Re: Beginning Looper Seeking Advice
if you want to go down the sotware route, then you'd just need and audio interface with enough ins and outs and a laptop.
mobius would be a good solution for your looper. each track can have it's own dedicated input and definable out port, so you could assign each track it's own instument and then route it's output to the amplifier of choice. it will also fufil all of your other requirements. you would probably need a footpedal and a control surface to punch in and out and control track volumes etc

these loops to a set BPM while maintaining the ability for a loop to
have its own type of rotation (meaning one loop going for 4 measures
of 4, one going for 7, one for 3, etc. all simultaneously). 3Rd, I
would like to be able to adjust the volumes of each loop separately
after I play it. 4Th, I would like to be able to have each loop sent
to a different output device (one to a bass cab, another to a guitar
amp and so on). This requires that the loops be isolated and that the
system has enough outputs. I would also like to be able to use foot
pedals to trigger loops. If anyone has even just rudimentary ideas of
how this could be accomplished I would be so extremely grateful.
the only hardware looping tech that will give you that is the
It has 8 stereo tracks which can be routed to 3 different stereo
outputs and have individual control over volume and pan.
(so with panning that's 6 mono outputs)
To do the sync you'd have to record a one measure loop as
Master, then any addition loops can be any made to
fit exact numbers of measures.
It's controllable by a simple midi pedal (and you'd maybe
want a desktop midi controller to mix the loop output volumes).
You'll also need a small mixer.
