Re: Using Vox ToneLab LE for looping

I meant the ToneLab tabletop model.
But maybe I should look for the SE model.
The delay function sounds interesting although I donīt need
the looper function that much.
If I had a good delay and amp modeling in one device,
I could sell the external Boss DD20 Delay.
Easier for live-gigs with less equipement.
OR does the tabeltop model have good delay options too,
just not having the loop function?
Then I might use the Tabletop with a midi controller.
Which is more gear, youīre right.
