    Perfect add to any pedalboard

    I did a lot of research on these before I finally bit the bullet and decided that this was exactly what I needed. I appreciated sweetwater's return policy that stated that if I didn't like it, I had I believe 30 days to return it and get a full refund. I'm happy though that it was everything is hoped it'd be. Noise free switching between the loops and it really improved my tone by eliminating a lot of unnecessary cable length. I'm also using it to do channel switching on my amp which makes it really nice. Literally no tap dancing at all anymore. If you're in the market for something like this, I'd highly recommend looking up all the options his has to offer or calling one of the Sweetwater sales guys as they helped me quite a bit with the questions I had.

    Just buy a good looper like this one

    I have always wanted a looper and finally decided to splurge. I was going to get an unpowered one from a smaller company, but then noticed some people online had loopers with MIDI capabilities. This thing is awesome. Two modes. One for programming all loops with whatever loops I want to engage with a single click and the other for clicking on and off specific loops. The 1st mode also lets you use MIDI to send a signal to your pedals. I use Strymon's Timeline and Big Sky so this is a WIN!!! I just preprogram the loops I need for a gig and the looper tells my Strymon pedals what patch to play. There is a reason why Strymon included 100 banks to hold your presets. No more pedal dancin'!

    The sound quality is pretty phenomenal. With my old setup in series I noticed sound degradation pretty easily. I run and American Strat through my pedalboard into a Matchless Spitfire. With a high quality amp like this one, you can hear the degradation occur when your pedals are run in series. This looper doesn't click or pop and has buffered inputs/outputs so that you maintain a strong, clear signal. I can't notice a difference between a straight plug into the amp or through the looper.

    It's expensive but worth it. Just and FYI, you need double the cables and connectors, but oddly enough you will notice an improvement in sound.

    Revolutionised the Way I Play

    This is easily the best money I have ever spent on my pedalboard. As my rig grew, so did the amount of tap dancing required to get through every song in the set. There were times I'd have to somehow activate and deactivate combinations of 5 pedals at a time to change to a specific sound. Now that all my pedals are in programmable loops every single sound I want is just one foot press away.

    Ten available loops for pedals with advanced routing options, and ten banks of seven presets mean there is more than enough room to save your favourite pedal combinations. Turn off your compressor, OD, boost and reverb while turning on your POG2 and fuzz with just a single stomp of a footswitch. Incredible.

    While the MIDI control is rudimentary at best, it is still invaluable. Using my Strymon TimeLine and BigSky, I can have a different delay and reverb sound not just for every song, but even for different sections. The ability to instantly go from a clean compressed sound with dotted 8th delays and a hint of room verb in a verse to a huge overdriven chorus with a nice big plate verb so seamlessly and clean is just absolutely sublime.

    If your pedalboard is growing and you would love to do more without accidentally sending your rig into spaceship mode due to a poorly executed tap dance routine, then you just need to have this. Highly recommended for regular giggers and worship guitarists.

    Rock Star... on my front porch.

    This controller is CLUTCH!!!

    This thing is CLUTCH..... Has 7 Loops plus 3 versatile parallel loops to all mix pedals at your feet (up to 10) or even run signal to two amps (stereo or maybe even run "tr-ereo" - 3 amps...ha,ha... bad*ss's buy three amps). Can buffer or bypass the buffer for signal strength / tone preference. I run a Wah pedal then into the controller. Midi is also sweet..... make sure your midi pedals/equipement are really capable of connecting to any of the 70 channels this controller has. Note this: The midi capability on the "TC Flashback X4 Delay" is not good..... one day i will be upgradinig to a more versitile midi delay pedal (Strymon)..... this is a shame because TC Flashback X4 has great delays. Also this controller can midi control my 3 channel 65 Amps Empire (also CLUTCH) with a RJM Switch Gizmo (midi to TRS connection to control channels). The Crocodile's Tail instructions are minimal (Japanese in box/ English instruction online)... look at all the "youtube" videos to understand total capability (Sweetwater please produce a product video). Power it with 9V from a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus.

    Nice unit. Does not include power supply.

    I have not had a chance to play with the device yet, but it seems to be a very well-built unit. I thought it pertinent to point out that it does not ship with a power supply. Yes, you _can_ power it by combining outputs 5 and 6 from a Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2 Plus, _but_ that requires a CURRENT doubling adapter that you have to buy separately from Voodoo Labs (for $6 plus shipping). Outputs 5 and 6 are rated at only 250 mA each, so you need to combine the two to provide the 450 mA that the Crocodile Tail drains.

    The only other caveat is that the user's manual is very sketchy. I had to read it carefully several times before I got the gist of how the Crocodile Tail works.
