RE: New to looping..

There's a similar device in Audiomulch called cannon looper. It allows a train of up to 16 loopers, each repeating once only. Quite neat actually..
Why not download the trial software and give it a go? There are loads of plugins you could try as long as your soundcard is pretty reasonable. It's a steep learning curve initially but there are some very well informed members on this list...



ps keeping track of 10 loops might be a little unweildy in terms of hardware control. I've used up to 4 recently and have found it less than manageable even when I've assigned dfferent loops to dfferent famlies of sound, (rhythm, harmonies, ambience etc).

The RedSound Soundbite XL is essentially just a loop-sampler (no overdubbing of any loop), but it does allow 6 separate time related loops, all synced together nicely, each one starting as soon as each loop is recorded. Each loop can be turned off, faded out, or reversed independently, and there is some nice onboard filtering (unfortunately of all the loops en-masse). The 'pro' version has other features such as loop slicing, and the ability to communicate with PC/MAC. I have modified mine to give footswitch control (not difficult).
