In our big comparison, the 7 Loop Stations presented in the table above were the ones that we liked best. All those loopers use plug jacks as inputs and outputs and therefore are compatible with a vast amount of instruments (e.g. guitar).
We are quite impressed by the Boss RC-3 that stands out with a recording time of 180 minutes and 99 memory slots. You can find more information about the Loop Station in the table above or in our review of the Boss RC-3.
Regarding the price-performance ratio, the looper Boss RC-1 of the lower price segment caught our eye as it comes with a relatively long loop time of 12 minutes, even in stereo. Therefore, you might use a keyboard or even a small mixer to dispense several instruments in stereo sound.
If you would like to use the looper during a live performance, you will be happy to hear that the RC-1 allows you to connect an external pedal for easy operation. Another aspect we enjoyed was the graphic LED display which allows you to immediately see where the loop is at any given moment.
Another small and simple looper, we would like to recommend, is the Ditto Looper for guitarists, as we believe it to be pretty cheap and extremely compact. You can find more information about the Ditto in our review.
Many of the Loop Stations presented have a USB port for transmitting loops and pre-sets to a PC. Some of the Loop Stations have internal memory to store ideas / loops while some devices have drum samples as an accompaniment while playing.
