Vox's entry into the looper market in 2012 is a welcome change from the ongoing battle between Boss and Digitech. The Vox Looper steps in a different direction by dispensing with unneeded hours of recording time, keeping their loops at a maximum of 90 seconds, and instead building multi-effects options into their new loopers. The Vox Lil' Looper allows you to continuously loop a piece of music, while adding variations in the sound using different effects that would otherwise have to be purchased as separate effects pedals. The Vox Lil' Looper is one of the most compact loopers to offer this type of technology, which is great for when you are travelling light or don't have a lot of space.
The VOX VDL1 Looper Multi-Effects Pedal is a powerful combination of both a looper and a multi-effects pedal. This combination allows musicians to not only loop a section of music, but to also add a variety of different sounds and effects such as bass and acoustic guitar simulation, compression, distortion, wah, and others. While not everyone will want or need these built in effects, others will love the convenience of an all-in-one pedal.
