Does anyone on here (looks pointedly at Matt) have a Vox VDL-1? Or have experience of it? My younger boy is rather fancying one.

I really want to get a looper...but whenever I look at them my gear-lust kicks-in and I end-up at the top off the Boss range looking at the RC300...then the price-tag kills the deal.
Maybe Santa will help...

I've never used it (I have an Akia looper) and I know for a fact that Matt Stevens' looper pedal of choice is made by Line 6.


That said, the looper pedals are pretty similar nowadays in terms of functionality. May I ask what your sone wants to use it fo? I ask as I could give it a look online and see if there are any better or cheaper alternatives out there based upon what he wants to do with it.

Er, he wants to use it for looping. Duh!

I believe the functionality he is most interested in is the straight "record a bit of something, then play it back (same speed) and play something else over it" but the effects are interesting as well. He's got a Boss multi-effect-y thingy which is, apparently, getting a bit tired now, and fancies the effects on the Vox pedal. I can't remember the model of the Boss one, but it was about 100 about 4/5 years ago.

Sorry Catherine, I should have been more specific. Is your son going to use the looper for live work, studio work or a bit of both?

There are loads of looping pedals out there and most are configured for use live. The Vox certainly seems to be one that allows you a lot of flexibility building up loops but as it lacks a USB connection, there is no direct digital transfer of the looped audio. That means the only way you can record sounds is via the audio out. Although not a disaster, it does mean it's limited to the simple 'hit record and play' methodology.

If that is all your son is interested in then it's a great pedal but if he's out live and wants to capture something he's played, then he'll be out of luck (unless he's got a recording device hooked up all the time naturally).

He's largely wanting it for music practice and composition purposes. He's not really got into studio stuff yet (which is a relief because that could get REALLY expensive) and is wanting it to help with his GCSE composition exercise in which he has to produce some music for 2 instruments - most likely 2 guitars. That, and for a bit of fun!
