~$300 Looper Setup for Youtube

A question came in that I would like to share the response to:

“My college-aged son really wants a looper pedal for Christmas, but I need some help on figuring out the whole setup.  I am happy to purchase through your amazon links.

I would like to be under $300 for the whole setup if possible.

He is a vocalist, so I guess we would need a pedal, microphone, some sort of speaker, and I don’t know what else.  He does own a macbook, so if any of these are able to interface with the computer at that price point, it would be great.

I think this would mostly be for jamming and youtube for now.”

Here is the response:

With the below setup, he should be good to go. Audio Interfaces are always tricky and there may be issues connecting to the Mac. I have not confirmed your exact setup and it may require a little risk to stay in this price range. Total comes in around $327.
