Re: history of loop devices?

Title: history of loop devices?
The Lexicon Jam Man was bourn from the modifications that Bob Sellon had been doing to the Lexicon PCM-42 delay, expanding the memory and improving synch options. It was widely used by David Torn.

I think the ancestor fo the lexicon jamman, one of the first looper MIDI conceived to be only a looper.



Also, the Lexicon Model 93 Prime Time was one of the first DDLs to feature a “hold” button, and was used extensively by Brian Eno on “My Life in the Bush of Ghosts” and “Remain in Light”, and several Jon Hassell records.

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
