For some time now I'm really wondering why there still is no covering-it-all-hardware-solution. I've been watching the looper market for years now, tested boss, digitech; fell in love with sooperlooper and tried freewheeling...
- boomerang: up to 4 independent loops but does not support batteries or direct mic-in
- boss x30: xlr and batteries but only two tracks and both have to have the same length
- vox vdl1: no batteries, but two seperable loops and xlr
- sooperlooper: every wish fulfilled except easy portability, you need at least a separate pedal, a decent soundcard and some computer. while nowadays performing on the street might even be possible for some hours, it still takes ages to setup the hardware, jack, midi, sooperlooper and why not also ardour...
With prices and performance of nowadays computers shouldn't there actually be a portable computer (or even a mobile phone, or even a pc in a pedal) which can do sooperlooper and ardour and midi and has good enough audio quality for live performance and the possibility of extending with external sound cards?
