I've a BOSS SP-202 and it'll take MIDI in. If you're using anything that'll
send a MIDI trigger at the start of each loop, it can trigger a sample on
the 202. Just set that sample patch to "Trigger" and "One-Shot". The 202 is
a very nice, affordable sampler but not ideal as a guitar looper .. you
have to start and stop the recording process using the buttons (not via
MIDI or with foot switches), and guitarists usually don't have a free hand
.... used it with a keyboard tho' and that was fun, especially the ring
modulator, if you fancy sounding like Jan Hammer for a minute. But it is
stereo, good sound quality, and has reverse and time stretch. Perfect for
DJing, or taking loops off the PA for total maymen :-)

I saw a big brother of the 202 that had 16 sample patches, and a built-in 4
track mixing desk .. anyone seen this? It's not on the rolandus.com site.
