Tips on loopers
« on: June 07, 2017, 05:26:35 pm »
Hi folk. I wonder if I can get some input from those who have experience with loopers.

I have a boss rc3 which in default mode works on each press of the pedal as record-overdub-play-overdub.

I found it tricky to get used to going straight into overdub so I changed it to record-play-overdub-play which made it easier to get the first loop setup and works ok for practicing but I'm now thinking that for live performance the default settings might work better.

I've scanned previous posts and can't see this particular point covered.

Anyone got any thoughts on this?

Cheers

David

For live performances, it may be better to get an FS-5/6/7 which gives you the option to have these controls on a separate footswitch.

Thanks Keith. I just tried this with a similar pedal and it works a treat.
