Still new at this and thinking it may be time to start playing over some basic rhythm tracks. Looking at the DITTO looper then I saw the Wire Tap Riff Recorder. I like that the recorder has up to 8 hrs of record, will record multiple riffs, will loop the current riff and unlike the DITTO it saves the riffs/tracks after you shut the thing off. My question is Why would I prefer a looper over the recorder? Remember I am pretty new at this so mostly just using this for a training device.
