Yeah, the EDP's price always kept it out of my rack. 
A great looper, no doubt, but if you want to loop
stereo the cost was kind of through the roof compared
to other stereo loopers.

In terms of syncable loopers right now, I don't think
there's much else though.  You can get a Looperlative,
but it's even more though stereo.  If it sat in a
mixer's effects loop you might be able to work it so
that you could all take a channel (there's 8 stereo
channels) but that would be kind of hard to work out
and would probably mean that one person was the

is my looper of choice these days. 
http://www.zonemobius.com  It's amazing, free and the
developer is great.  If you have a laptop that's set
up for audio, get a midi controller and you're done.

If you're on a Mac, you're less fortunate, but Expert
Sleeper's Augustus loop is inexpensive and pretty
fucking fun.  More of a tape loop simulator than
Mobius, but it's really fun.  There's also
