Jamman Vocal XT Review

The Digitech Vocal XT looper is so simple that the manual is a tiny 19 pages in length, with most of the stuff you’ll actually need fitting in less than 10. Experienced loopers won’t need the manual at all, and for any newcomers, the key points can fit into a short paragraph: you plug in, set your mic level, and then press the footswitch to record your first “phrase” (which repeats to form your loop).

Ditto Mic Looper Review

TC Electronic’s Ditto looper series is all about simplicity and pristine sound quality. Guitarists know them well thanks to the original Ditto, the X2, X4 and the Ditto Stereo. One thing all of these pedals were missing, however, was a mic jack. For vocalists, and anyone who plays an acoustic instrument, the Ditto series was off the cards. The Ditto Mic looper aims to change all that.

Boss RC-202 Loop Station

Boss’s RC-505 took looping in a new direction. When it was released, looping was really all about guitarists, and it still is today to some extent. But the behemoth of a looper was expressly designed with broader goals in mind. The “tabletop” looper was designed to be operated by hand, and vocalists and beatboxers (like DubFX) were the intended audience more than six-string wielding guitarists.

Boss RC-505 Loop Station Review

Loopers are traditionally a plaything for guitarists. Boss has played their part in establishing this status quo, putting out numerous looper pedals of varying sizes from the RC-3 style stompboxes through to the behemoth options like the latest flagship, the RC-300. For beatboxers like Dub FX, this meant the only option was to use the supplied mic jacks and use the guitarist-centric pedals their own way. With the RC-505, Boss has thrown out the rule book and made something specifically for beatboxers, synth players, keyboard players and singers looking to enter the world of looping.

Boss RC-30 Loop Station Review

Boss kicks off 2011 with two new looper pedals, the RC-3 Loop Station and the RC-30 Loop Station. The RC-30 Loop Station is a twin pedal and the larger of the two. It’s a multitrack looper with two synchronized stereo tracks and built-in loop effects. Overall, Boss offers several improvements over its older twin pedal, the Boss RC-20XL, while some musician’s still prefer the older model.

Digitech JamMan Stereo Review

After amazing success with the original JamMan, Digitech improved upon it and unleashed three brand new loopers: the Jamman Solo, the Jamman Stereo (reviewed here), and the Jamman Delay. The JamMan Stereo is the mid-sized version, the one Goldilocks would have chosen. The question is whether being in the middle really does make it ‘juuust right.
