Re: history of loop devices?

Title: history of loop devices?
MXR M-113 Digital Delay circa 1976-77 the iconic delay used by Jaco Pastorius during his solo piece with Weather Report,  and was an early use of a digital sample and hold delay in  live performance context, my personal first  live exposure , check him out here from 1978 at about 4.08 into the improvisation.

Valerie Paille from ARTE who makes a little TV documentary for the Tracks magazine asked if there is a history list of the important loop machines that came after Frippertronics (just years and device names, maybe links). Can you help? Can we make a simple list together? She needs it quickly.

We can probably begin with:

1983    Electro-Harmonix EH-16  (http://www.loopers-delight.com/tools/eh16/eh16_ad.html)

19??    Digitech PDS-8000
