So...

I'm having another quick scan of "weird loopers" to expand up my tabletop pedal-based ambient / noise operations.

It seems like there's a bit of a divide between awe-inspiring creative sound-manglers with awe-inspiring price tags (Blooper, Pigtronix, CT5, Mood, Timefactor, Tensor) and cheapo record-and-play things for practicing your pentatonic blues licks (Ditto, Hotone Wally etc), and stuff that does aim for the middle market does it by adding extra loops or more recording time rather than weird features.

Apart from the Vox that's mentioned upthread, is there anything else with a few of the creative pitching and chopping features in a smallish form-factor at a middling price point? Or should I just accept that I'm blatantly going to spaff the cash on a Blooper when they hit a general release?

Cheers!

I run 2 electrix repeaters through an audio mixers bus system and then all 8 outs to individual channels of same audio mixer. I’ve used many different looper pedals/racks, and for me, nothing comes close to my current setup.

Any opinions on Keeley ECCOS?

So as I read it, this is basically a nice vintage-sounding delay plus something like a Ditto X2 linked in series in the same box? You can have a delayed sound and capture it in a loop, then adjust the delay and overdub the loop with your new sound as much as you like, but the two parts are otherwise independent?

Also, this isn't really about the Keeley thing, but I get a bit annoyed when pedal companies make a "digital delay and looper" pedal, and say "okay, so in the delay modes, this button controls tap tempo and this button maxes out the delay for infinite repeats. The knobs control feedback, delay time, modulation depth, modulation rate and repeat tone. Depending on which of the seven delay modes you're in, changing the delay time either shifts the pitch or causes glitchy jumps, and in mode 6 the delay buffer is reversed. In looper mode, this button stops and starts recording, this button clears the buffer, and none of the knobs do anything. HAND."

I caught a demo on youtube - ordered one to try out. I wonder how it compares to the SOS mode on the El Cap.
