If you want to use a looper station in a live performance, then you will need equipment that you can trust. Also, you want to have the flexibility to utilize all of the cool potential (effects, setting up different loops for chorus/bridge/versus/etc, volume control of each loop, etc.).
A few key equipment requirements are:
– an in-ear-monitor to make sure that your timing is controlled
– a multi-track looper is recommended, as opposed to a single-track looper
