Re: Boomerang 3

I love my Boomerang III !! I have been straddling the fence since I 
starting looping which way to go laptop or hardware. I continue to make 
attempts with both but the Rang 3 has been the most productive way for me 
to work so far. From my perspective, I mostly do song style looping with 
another musician and with the Boomerang it just gets the job done and I 'm 
not spending time learning new software with an endless upgrade path. It 
has a really small footprint which I like because I sit down when I play 
my instrument and only have so much available space to reach pedals with 
my foot. The Boomerang has lots of features but the downside is that you 
can have 4 engaged at any one time. (with a long or short press of the 
Bonus green/yellow buttons) This is actually a feature for me because I 
get more music done with less features. If you are somebody that would 
half the tempo, reverse, stutter, overdub, undo/redo, and fade out all in 
the same tune the Boomerang could be frustrating because the buttons you 
use to change the function of the yellow/green bonus buttons are extremely 
small and I would only feel doing in between songs.
I'll post some videos of me doing some cover tunes soon that I arranged 
for the purpose of learning the rang 3 and an M9.
