Which Looper To Buy??!!

So far the Pigtronix Infinity, EHX 95000, and Boomerang iii are at a head in battle tonight. With so much information learned I still can't make a decision on which one to get. Can any body help narrow the selection down? Thanks.

I own the Pigtronix Infinity. I'm not familiar with the other two brands you have mentioned.

The Infinity is awesome! Well constructed and great support from the manufacturer. It comes with a ton of algorythms and each is customizable to your taste. There's a lot you can do with this looper and I highly recommend it.

Oh yeah, if you search Youtube, you can hear the Infinity in action.

I own the infinity and it’s pretty cool. Honestly if they made one that was bigger and more controls (no secret hidden functions) I would repurchase it. As is it is still the best I’ve tried, but I feel like it is too advanced for its own good.

For reference I also owned a boss rc300, which i traded for the pigtronix.

another happy infinity owner.. only irritation is that you really need the extra switches.. so a +1 to bigger with a few more knobs and more switches but everything can be controlled by midi CC so there's that.

Man you guys are taking looping to another level with these units.

I have a TC Electronic Ditto X2 that I am very happy with and has features I don't use, what am I missing with these beasts?

What I need in a looper is the ability for at least 3 things: variable feedback in any mode (recording or overdub), and what is called 'insert': take a non-rhythmic loop, of say, 14.3 seconds, and set new start and stop points within that- 'punching out' a rhythm of a longer loop. I also use Multiply, which can take a 2 bar phrase and you can record a 6 bar phrase over the top.

What I like about Boss RC505 is five stereo tracks that can be asynchronous, 3 hrs stereo recording time, can import/export via USB, midi controllable, and can serve as an audio interface. I cannot have it (the new version) for three more weeks. I have read the EHX 95000 manual and for my uses it runs a close second.

Loopstation is Awesome!

Hey, new slut here and had a question, but like any new slut i didnt know where to put it lol. So i just purchased a new Loopstation from Sweetwater. When i was checking through the system options, i came accross the amount of recording time i get on this machine. My question is... My Loopstation is telling me that i have 6 hours of recording time. Just wondering if anyone else can see the same thing in their Loopstation.

So, would that just mean that when recording, i would have 6 hours of mono and 3 stereo? Anyway... Just confused. I do thank and appreciate each and everyone of you that belong to the music family.
