Re: Loopers-Delight-d Digest V01 #301

Hi Everybody:
       I am new to looping.  I am a bass player and am following after Victor Wooten's example in using loops during live performances and layering bass grooves and riffs for a total musical performance out of a bass guitar.  I am considering purchasing either the Lexicon Jamman or the Gibson/Oberheim Echoplex Digital Pro and have been researching these two units with resources I found yesterday on Loopers-Delight.com.  It seems that the Gibson Echoplex is the way to go, since it seems to be generally recognized as a superior looper and it is still in production, whereas the Lexicon Jamman has been out of production for some years now.  I am sure both units are excellent, but it is a difficult choice to make not having had any hands-on experience with either of the units.  If anybody has any comments or advices on choosing between the Lexicon Jamman or the Gibson/Oberheim Echoplex Digital Pro, please let me hear from you.  Also, if anybody has any great looping tracks they have created that would be great for a bass player to do a free form jam to like Victor Wooten does, please let me hear from you.  I have a Roland R-70 Human Rhythm Composer/drum machine with which I have created a couple of suitable tracks to jam to, but I don't want to take the time to become a creative genius with a drum machine (I want to concentrate on sharpening my improvisational skills on the bass guitar.)  I look forward to hearing from some of my fellow loopers out there.  Perhaps I will also be able to pass along a tip or two to some fellow guitar/bass loopers.  Yours truly, Ron Smith, Louisville, Kentucky.
