  1. I was searching the forum the other day, and kept coming upon a myriad of people in the Effects forum spelling the word "looper" as "loooper", with three o's in it.

    Why the heck? Is this intentional or am I just crazy?
     
  2. my GODS! that was fast, thank you super...

    *bows head in mock shame*

    They don't. Looopers don't offer loopng capabilites- they aren't effects pedals; they are only signal chain controlers.
     
  10. thats what i thought...what do you mean by that xan?

    hehe forget it i was just playing with words.. 'loop' in the sense that it creates a effects loop. maybe i should just delete that post to save confusion..
     
  12. lol sorry about that! i get it now!
     
  13. so, using said looper device, I could accomplish a setup of this type?

    Bass>Tuner>Loooper>(Loop with distortion in it)/(Clean channel with Bass Xciter and maybe Chorus in it)>Amp

    or is there a better way to route it?

    Yeah get a tuner out on the looper so you can silently tune, and your tuner isn't in you signal path.

    Bass>Loooper>(Loop with distortion in it)/(Clean channel with Bass Xciter and maybe Chorus in it)/(Tuner Mute to Tuner)>Amp
