TC Electronic Ditto X4 Looper (stab: Keeley Phase 24)
2 Independent loops each w/ 5 min record time and unlimited overdub/undo/redo
Serial mode = each loop is exclusive (thnk switching A to B section)
Sync mode = Both loops stack. Loop 1 sets master tempo for both. Better for intricate looping compositions. Loop 2 is not restricted by the time of loop 1 (so 4 bar percussive thing, 16 bar chord progressions can happen)
7 loop effects including half time, reverse, once, tape stop, fade, double, and hold
Decay control allows old loops to fade away as new ones are added.
USB port lets you export and import tracks
Stereo in/out, MIDI control, custom setting dip switches on the back
Stereo in/outs let you run two instruments (guitar/bass for example) and output to two separate amps.

To me sounds a little like the Small Clone.
