Hi Marc, I use a 2880 with the ehx footswitch. I am not a song type looper but do for lack of a better word ambient improv guitar stuff. I also use it in stereo so I have two pairs most of the time.
What I am wondering is if with midi control you gain more individual control over the recorded loops. In other words can you reverse/octave/fadeout one loop without having to do it to another loop you are recording/playing?
I can't do this of course with the footswitch. I hope I am making some sense here, thanks.
