apart from wanting to keep 'em all in the rig :-)
My current setup is 2xEDP, LP1 and EH Stereo Memory Man.
They each have indispensable functions (although with
the SMM it's more that it's positioned pre the rest of rig
which makes it essential)

If you're using a drum machine/sample player for the consistent rhythm in
and want to flip between different loops each with fixed arrangement then
the EDP's a bit simpler to do that, and it's also very flexible as to how
you do it.
On EDP all the layers for one section will be overdubbed onto one loop,
makes switchover dead easy.
...but it's just a look at the manual of
the LP1 to see how to do similar, just a matter
of programming it's response (easy).
If you'd consider creating the rhythm loop live...and there's
many reasons to do that then the LP1 will allow you to keep your
rhythm loop going while changing sections.
If you want to be able to drop layers in and out during
the different sections then go for the LP1.
If you want stereo...LP1
