    So I've been looking for a combination delay and looper, as I can't really justify having one or the other.
    Yesterday, I bought myself a TC Flashback. I was completely in love with it... for about forty minutes.
    After that forty minutes, I found out that the effects volume on the looper not only controls the loop volume, but your whole signal volume as well! Thus rendering the looper pretty much useless.
    So that's going back. Are there any other good ones out there?
    Boss DD7? Line6 DL4? Hit me with that sweet advice!!!

    Gee... if you're considering going with the DL-4, why not look into a used M9?

    Pedalboard space?

    OP, the Vox DelayLab might suit your needs as well - it's a combo delay/looper on the same model as the L6 DL-4, but much newer and apparently pretty feature-packed, without being quite so powerful (and expensive) as the Eventide.

    I've seen it online, but never really considered it for some reason. I'll check it out!
    (Also I dig russian circles. Props!)

    I enjoy simplicity. As cool as both of those are, (and the m9 really tempted me for a minute) I run a super basic rig, and I don't really need what they offer.
    The eventide is admittedly too expensive, and the m9 has a lot of features I'd never use. I'm a recovered tweaker (sold my axe-fx last year), so I really just try to run a guitar->overdrive (which rarely gets turned on)-> tube amp whenever I can. The delay is kind of a novelty.

    That's pretty badass. I've never even heard of it. I'll check that out too!

    thanks a lot folks! Rep for all!
