Thanks for responding-
The Bommerang is a fantastic on the fly unit. In my opinion, it is great 
creative performance/improv. I have had some problems with noise when 
recording, and to me this is no small negative.
The boomerang doesn't save anything after power down, and can only save 
loops at a time when in use. I love using the boomerang for what I 
mentioned, but when I get a real great loop after much improv, even if I 
retrace the process, I seldom come close to regaining what I had. This can 
be a problem when playing with others. The rang also has zero undo, so one 
slip up and you're fried.
I think the echoplex can at the very least sync up with a computer to 
relieve itself of onboard loops. With its midi function, it would be easy
