I have been looking at guitar loop pedals for a while (years). Anything with MIDI is big, seems to require an add on footswitch pedal beside the actual pedal and starts to approach the price of an elektron Digitakt.
But what about using elektron for looping. On the forums, there are many stories from people who really didn’t like the workflow of the octatrack – especially for trying to manage loops (menu diving, etc). What about the Digitakt? From what I can tell, there are issues with loop length, slicing, bars, immediacy, etc (but maybe I am wrong).
And the brand new elektron Sample? No sampling input.
Okay, fine. What about those old guitar pedal loopers? Issues, issues. How has no one come up with something yet? Kind of mindblowing. What am I missing here?
