including videos (don't bother watching the first one, it's painful).
'Re-sampling can also be used to create loops of a different length than the previously-recorded loop' - sounds like this could be a multiply feature - at last!
The 2nd video shows some of the built in effects, some of which (pre and post loop) are time-synced to the loop length. The X-fade reverse, speed and stutter modes look fun. I laughed out loud when I saw the 'subtle' use of the filter effect on the video.
It seems that loops 1 and 2 run concurrently, with the useful ability to cross fade the volume between the 2 using the pedal. The blurb says 'This two-loop design opens up complex and highly original performance techniques, such as switching between phrases of different lengths, or containing different chord patterns'. No mention if the 2 loops can be set to run sequentially though.
Finally, I'm not too sure about this statement; '* Infinite recording time using two independent loops (combined loop length up to 90 seconds)'. In my world, infinity > 90 seconds.
Not released until May, but looks though it might be worth waiting for. Shame it's mono.

I've seen it quoted as £199 by a couple of places. I like the built-in expression pedal and the demo I saw seemed to be indicating that it was possible to record a basic loop then use the other loop for additional embroidery which can be brought in and out. A variation on undo and redo perhaps?
'Loop in Loop' plays a small section of the loop over and over. If you use the tap tempo before starting your loops it'll be in time with the loop, otherwise not. 'Loop in Loop' doesn't change the loop, ...unless use resample while using it. The VDL-1 *does* do the EDP 'Multiply but end with record' trick if you end Resample with the trigger button.
