I have no experience with a looper but am wondering if anyone has tried this.
I'm thinking in a trio situation of laying down a rhythm track and then playing a solo over it.
Can the recorded loop be started easily in time with the drummer?
Definitely timing and practice. A buddy of mine does it seamlessly with drum machines, Bass, guitar and vocals using a mixer. He even had a keyboard involved at one point on top of all that. Pretty much like that video above actually. It's crazy cool when you can do it really well.
Some will laugh, but the best looping musicians I have seen have been on cruise ships. Rythym, fills, lead, percussion, harmonica, beat boxing... amazing stuff. Takes a talented solo artist to set up a PA, a mic, a looper, and a guitar in front of a few dozen people and be perfect for an hour set.
I've only used mine to queue certain effects like the air raid siren at the beginning of War Pigs. I'd imagine if you were to use it in a band setting for anything rhythmic everyone would have to have impeccable timing.
