The very first budget choice on the listing does, in actuality, offer many of the functions found in the pedals mentioned above.
You get 10 minutes of looping time with infinite overdubs, and you can undo and redo your actions. You receive the typical reverse and half speed playback styles also. Mono output and input constraints its prowess a bit, though looping pedals are generally among the first in any given signal chain. It’s true bypass, so that your signal goes through unaltered when you turn off the effect. On the other hand, the cheap circuitry can color your signal a little.
Operating the loop with one footswitch may seem a little tricky at first, however, the multi-function switch makes it a bit easier, and the LED indicator lets you know the condition of the looper. Clicking and holding the switch down until the light flashes green deletes the final loop. Clicking stops playback. Holding down it after double clicking will delete all listed loops.
Aluminum casing of the small looping pedal is stronger than you would expect for this price range. It seems durable. Also, it is easy to transfer music between the pedal and your PC.
