Lets be blunt. This is very expensive. If you want even a really basic function like undo/redo (far more useful to most people than a second loop) its a $500 purchase... ~$450 + $50 for the essential 2 button footswitch
Nevermind, i can add up but still talked myself into this.. and can say i am very very disappointed.
1. Syncs to a drum machine fine (the reason i bought it)
2. Sound quality is fine
1. Build quality is atrocious. One knob sticks higher than others, the LEDs have no cover, the LEDS are misaligned, one button is higher than the others... This is hand made boutique gear at its worst. For a $449 unit i minimally expect something that looks like it was put together by something other than an Orangutan.
2. Operation is very poorly thought out and follows its own convoluted logic... most loopers you pick up and can simply use..this you need the manual, you need the extra footswitch, and even then you have to figure stuff out and then remember it despite the lack of supporting logic... IMO the manf. has attempted to be everything to everyone and lost the basics along the way. eg. having the undo/redo on an external switch makes zero sense... another 1" wider and 4 switches could have been on thi, or relegate loop 2 select to the extra footswitch.
In summary.. you are paying over the top money for a badly built, badly designed unit that luckily does the job..
Buy this ONLY if you have no choice.
