Moen GEC9 Guitar Effect Controller
6 months. about 20 repets, 1 concert.

Since this is not an effect pedal but a controller, there is not really need to test before, just read the manual to see if it is simple or not.

I compared:
-Loopers simple loop to x: I never understood what it was for, except to put a bypass on pedals do not, and have a complete loop pedal. Problem, they are all switched on at once, or not ...
MusicomLab-EfxIII: Well, with the south, but 600euros
Welfare ...: with midi, but it costs an arm
-RJM: need several devices, it is expensive and it takes up space
Or 14-gigrig PRO8: almost 1000euros is too expensive for an individual, and too big
-Voodoo lab: same as RJM, several boxes, and it is expensive.

The GEC9 not MIDI, but:
-Takes up too much space
-6 Loops
Programming-ULTRA ULTRA simple and fast, top notch I think
-40 Different presets

most: 4 points above
minimum: the integrated buffer is rotten.

Let me explain: it adds a lot of treble I think. I spent 3 hours to make comparisons with and without, through little or a lot of pedals, all sorts. I have evidence that audio cable, so as to say the best of the best. In the end, I saw that high-end pedals, and 2 or 3 pedals with integrated buffer, 2 voodoo lab power supply, super cable, it goes very well without the buffer of GEC9. I do not lose signal
Moreover, if the GEC9 is off, you can go through the non-buffered, is that the signal is not processed!

Best in category

The buffer is the single point that black GEC9. But since I have no use, and that it is probably the same for many people, it has very little significance. :)

Moen GEC9 Guitar Effect Controller
For how long have you been using it?

I have been using it for about a month now (6 practices with). I was looking for a looper that can control a giant pedalboard (Pedaltrain Pro) but prices are often daunting. I discovered this looper by accident, there are very little reviews on this product that also it has not been on the market for a long time (early 2011 I would say). I ordered it on ebay from a U.S. vendor that distributes the Chinese brand moen. It was a bit of a blind purchase but I do not regret it at all.

Did you try many other models before getting this one?

Is not the first big looper that I use. before I had a boss ls2 home but it supplies only two loops while here we can set 50 (10 banks and 5 per bank).

The Carl Martin octaswitch can program as 8 different loops and musicomlab FXIII is far too expensive for me, gigrig are too cumbersome and too expensive.

What thing do you like most/least about it?

So we have 9 loops in all (6 series and 3 in parallel) I use the 9 loops as a result but we can use the last three loops for controlling an amp (channel change or AB box)
I do not use amps but Tech21 pedals character series (blonde and british) and a lot of effects (pog2 V256 freeze reverb delay fuzz modfactor) to be addressed on a jamhub (to practice with headphones with the group .) or on the speakers sound.
GEC9 allows me to program a lot of different sounds with a simple click. Each song has a different bank and it gives me 5 sounds per song.
More tap dancing ....
Programming is child's play (there are videos explaining it on the moen site (a little hard to find it is true)) and it automatically saves the changes.
The preset change is no "plop"
The GEC9 also greatly shortens the number of cables that the signal takes, instead of traversing all pedals, the signal may borrow only the one you need at the right moment.  Less buzz and signal loss.
It requires a 9 volt power supply so I had to put a BBE supercharger but I think it does not deliver a sufficient intensity. The GEC9 reboots itself sometimes so I've had it fed with a chameleon fuel tank and no more worries.
The BBE posed me some problems with many pedals that consume a lot (V256 / El Capistan / GEC9 ...) it's my fault because I have not really looked at how the BBE could escape through power.
The GEC9 is really well thought out: the switches are quite far apart.
There is an output for a tuner, dual inputs and a buffered unbuffered (optional) a mute the connections are very complete.

The only criticism I would make the GEC9 is that if you press again on the switch of the preset where you are it starts cutting and therefore bypass all effects, MOEN could have proposed the selection of bypassed or not, as someone who uses modelers (Tech21) if I gourre button I direct sound console and it's not necessarily flattering ... but I'm attention and the lights of the switches are not too flashy worries.

What is your opinion about the value for the price?

UNBEATABLE: ordered on ebay was $ 289 and $ 40 for shipping I got it for about 230 € .. frankly not a lot for something that delivers such services.

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

yes no problems, the benefits of other loopers can be due to the MIDI but I do not use it so ...
