though 'best' is a funny word, here, as some folks get ***tons*** of 
functionality from less-featured looping instruments:
important to know that, methinks.

as a dedicated loop-head, though, i don't view these two instruments:
EDP / Repeater:
---which are the only truly *freshly configured* feature-rich high-end 
realtime loopers, i'd say--- , 
as being pitted against each other, as their feature-sets are quite 
so far, i know that i gotta use the both of them.
(pretty voracious of me, eh?)
