Good question. Version 2. There are a couple of modes for moving between the loops. One mode, called AB1, smoothly transitions to loop B, plays it once, then goes back to playing loop A, all with one button press. A higher sample rate has been added; original max was 16KHz, new max rate is 24KHz. While this drops the sample time to 1 minute 27 seconds with 4Mbytes of memory , the Rang now captures a lot more highs and sounds a lot crisper.

In short, it records what you play and throws it back at you until you stop it from playing by hitting the stop button or using a decay. Musical preferences Own musical preference: My musical style is wide ranged, although I play mostly blues,rock, reggae rock, punk, jazz. The boomerang can be used for any style of music. Ease of use The Boomerang is extremely easy to use.
A single button press controls most functions and there is a unique foot roller to control playback volume. There are a couple of ways to move seamlessly between loops.
One mode, called AB1, smoothly transitions to loop B, plays it once, then goes back to playing loop A, all with one button press. After creating a loop, additional parts can be layered in forward or reverse. You can use loop A as a phrase sampler and loop B as a traditional delay effect. Independent decay rates can be set for loops A and B.
All are musically related to normal speed. Your choices are: down a 2nd, 4th, 5th, 7th or octave. Playback tempo is slowed and pitch is dropped by the chosen interval.
Live reverse leads! Long recording time. Time ranges from 1min. Sample rates range from 24KHz down to 8KHz. All samples are 16 bit with no compression. Rugged 17" x 6" x 2" steel chassis. Power supply is included. Made in Texas by musicians for musicians. But please see your local music store to make your best deal. You can do considerably better than the list price.
For what I use the Boomerang for it is awesome, I was inspired to get one when I saw my buddy use his and was blown away. If someone broke into my house, forget the gun, I could probably whack him over the head with the thing and then jam while I wait for the cops to come. The buttons are made of plastic but I have never had any issues with it.
I am an engineer and I am pretty impressed with this thing. Also, my power supply went bust and I contacted Mike the owner!!!! I was just really impressed that the owner took the time to contact me to replace my measily power supply. He even told me just to go to the store and get a new power supply with the appropriate rated amperage and voltage I just really wanted the "Boomerang" stamp on my power supply I am that in love with this product.
Awesome product, awesome service I believe for me it is a great practicing and jamming tool. On another note, the recording time or loop storage is amazing at over 4 minutes depending on the sample rate. I would replace it in a heartbeat!! This was my first review of a product and I hope someone got some benefit out of this who was thinking about getting this very very very fine tool my opinion anyway
