Top Customer Reviews
Pros- Small, very easy to use (1 level knob and a stomp button), designed by guitarists and it shows, true bypass and plenty of room for recording.
Cons- You may consider lack of battery a con, I don't, everything goes on the effects rack and is powered through AC. No drum track or click track but then again, the aim for this device was to keep is simple, I believe.
UPDATE: I was having an issue with the looper one night being able to record but not hear myself. I contacted support and their response was quick but they basically said it sounds like it is broken, replace at the store which I did. It worked great then one night again, I couldn't hear myself recording. I played for about an hour with different configurations, it seems not all 9V AC adapters are equal. Out of the 4 I have it only liked 2. When I used that adapter it seemed to work just fine. So beware if you are having an issue you might want to look at the 9V AC Adapter.
Let me just say that so far this pedal is the perfect marriage of ease of use and powerful versatility. I've experimented with a lot of software and hardware based loopers. I decided it was time to go with a hardware looper since when you're playing variety or open mic gigs when you have to be on and off stage pretty quickly, you sort of need to be able to plug in and go... something hard to accomplish with software based loopers. Most of the hardware based loopers I had experimented with seemed to have limited functionality to create anything that would generate interest and dynamics as the song went on and seemed to be mostly meant for the guitar player who wanted to lay down a riff and practice a solo over it (useful, but not exactly a way to spice up your live performance). On the flip side software based loopers seemed to involve too many "moving parts" and became unwieldy when trying to layer or create secondary loops. Too much input was required to create the desired effect and distracted from the performance. What TC electronic has done is basically to leave the important parts to you and do the rest.
Highlights of the pedal include; the sync/serial switch which allows you to either run both loops simultaneously or create loops that work as separate parts of the song, the all stop function and the ability to stop and start loops while remaining in sync individually. The FX section is a pretty cool added feature as well as the ability to independently control levels and the rate of decay of old loops as new ones are added (many of you I'm sure are aware that as intense overdubbing occurs, things can get a bit muddy). The sound quality of the unit is also amazing and the fact that you can add in backing tracks created in your DAW through the USB connectivity is pretty cool.
My only complaints are that some of the switching is sometimes hard to accomplish. For example to stop an individual loop (i.e. stop loop 1 while keeping loop 2 running) it requires a double tap which for is sometimes hard to do without sending it into a single tap for overdub (perhaps this could be solved with external MIDI input, still looking into it). The other thing I think could be improved upon in this pedal is the versatility of backing tracks. At this point you can only load 1 backing track per loop button and any kind of MIDI input doesn't allow any further versatility there. I would like it if there were an interface through the USB connectivity that allowed you to program your preferred inputs for each command on the unit.
Overall, this thing is fantastic, and besides a few quirks it's very intuitive and streamlined to use and will allow you A LOT of creativity with your looping. Personally I've been doing experiments with a mandolin going through a Boss OC-3 Octave Pedal creating pizzicato viola/cello like lines under my mandolin.
