The thing that's annoying about all these new fancy loopers (45000, Pigtronix, Boomerang 3) is while already being a large box and not inexpensive, they also invariably require you to purchase an additional foot controller to have full functionality.
I always forget about the DL4's looping features. Hmm, I'll have to take a closer look.
P.S. Should have tried to jump on the CL Princeton you found awhile back. Turns out that was quite the deal compared to what they've been going for on eBay recently.
I need a looper pedal in my life. Thinking of picking up the TC Electronics Ditto X2.
Looked at the Boomerang and Pigtronix Infinity, but really just want something simple to practice with (and that doesn't take up half a room).
Thought it'd be interesting to share our practice routines / what we're working on.
I'm currently working my way through Ross Bolton's Funk Guitar book and learning Radiohead's Bodysnatchers.
If you want some sweet 90's nostalgia, you should check out Ross Bolton's video on YouTube. The combination of his shirt and the backdrop is nothing short of amazing (RIP).
Mine's the same way -- that threw me off at first too.
When I have my amp set at low-volume, somewhere around 5-7 on the Boost knob keeps the volume comparable with the pedal engaged. Haven't verified this with anyone, but if I had to guess, I'd say it's so you can use the thickening or add extra gain and offset the volume to keep levels the same.
