I found the sound quality to be impressive through headphones, and as
usual I think diligent use of gain\distortion is the key to reducing
noise in these units.
Possibly the foot pedals are close together so you can trigger three
loops with a single foot?
I just slide my foot over and press another pedal while maintaining
pressure on the other pedal\s. It works OK, however the tolerance for
losing playback on a pedal is low when attempting that trick.
I was not going to buy any "small" loopers, because i thought the EDP
would be a much better tool.
However, this ZOOM cost me $300 Australian, has a few decent features,
but an Echoplex would cost me $3000 to get shipped over.
Hardly an option at the moment.
Chalk up one thing living in the US has going for it - much lower
