    I haven't played much on a loop pedal and I know I can just loop a phrase on my DAW Logic Pro and play over it but I seem to remember it being a lot more FUN playing with a looper pedal.
    Does anyone find that a looper pedal is more fun than playing over a repeated loop on software on a computer?

    I guess they both go to the same thing but since looping in a daw may end up with more precise results, if i'd want to do it for an album, that would be my choice..
    On the other hand, the looping pedal is more organic and more prone to mistakes that may end up crafting new ideas that you'd never had in a daw..
    What suits your creativity is the best choice for me ! ;)

    It' almost like I've been spoiled with the looping in the Logic DAW. Having to use my foot/toe makes it like you said organic and natural.

    Aww, I just realized something... when you loop with a pedal, you play and then you immediately start looping. With a DAW you stop and you sometimes create a track and then you think. I have devopled a better improvisation when I enter immediately into the loop.

    Does anyone relate to this?

    That's what I ment by organic, you get instant loop and reactions to it. ;)
