Sound quality is superb. The UI seems very nice, though I am struggling with the manual. It seems like one of those that once I figure out how to do something and what the manual actually means, it will stay in my memory. But some stuff, like a good explanation of the memory/recording limits and how they work could be MUCH clearer.
I will definitely get some good use out of this. BUT, the actual looper functionalities are extremely simple. There are traditional fx like delay, reverb, etc, and I personally don’t want to pay extra for them on a looper. However the Aeros is missing what to me are absolutely standard looping fx. The Aeros is more of a multitrack recorder than a looper at this point. I admittedly am comparing it to loopers in the tradition of the echoplex and now the loupe, but also the lp1 (probably the closest in terms of lots of tracks, reasonable recording lengths, good sound quality). I’ll also throw in the ciat lonbarde cocoquantus as the world’s most insane looper (plus much more). I don’t expect the Aeros to be like the loupe (which of course just has one track, and a short recording length), but i think that the ability to overdub at less than 100% (so that recordings gradually fade out), the ability to change the pitch (even just something like an octave down transpose), and some ability to insert into tracks, and change the recording in interesting ways…that to me is what would make it a powerful looper in contrast to a multitrack recorder with some very basic looping.
this sounds more negative than I mean it. Once I figured out the basics, i had a grand old time with it. But it’s not really much of a looper.
