Re: software or hardware???

If not the "holy grail" Iam looking for the most convenient way to
improvize while jamming. I want the easiest way to record loops "on
the fly" , playback, overdub, choose which one stops and which one
goes on all these functions without need to interrupt the whole
performance, using foot pedals mainly.
