I think the confusion is that, if you want to record a loop and keep that tone when you change patch, you need to set your looper to be POST before you record the loop. The recorder is then positioned at the very end of the set of amps and effects. That means it records the loop with all of the effects and amps from the patch already applied.
If you recorded something and looper was in the PRE position then it is like plugging an iPod into the front of your HD. Every time you changed patch, the loop sound would change to match the patch. This feature is actually useful while you are auditioning patches or making changes to an existing patch - avoids you having to play and edit at the same time.

Hi Jim, yeah thats not the problem, the problem is that after I record the loop in post it has all the effects of the preset I recorded with then when i go out of looper to change presets so i can play a distorted lead over the clean loop the clean loop changes to the distorted preset aswell so i can't have a clean background loop with me playing distortion over it.

Jim your a genius and I think Line 6 need to re-evaluate there default settings when post is in the looper screen its in pre and when pre is in the screen its in post well thats logical captain kirk. NOT! I have manage to do what I want to do with the looper but it has taken the best part of a day till you gave me the clue check the pre and post.

What you describe is not what should be happening, and I haven't heard of it happening before. Here's how the looper should behave:
Please double check evrything. If what you describe is still happening, please provide us with a clear step-by-step recipe of exactly how you are getting this behaviour. By this I mean something like:
1) select a clean preset. Make sure the Looper is in Post position as indicated in the Signal Flow view of the preset.
2) Press the Looper footswitch
3) Press RECORD and record a chord progression
.... etc, detailing every button/switch action that you are performing, in sequence......
If others (including Line 6) can reproduce the behaviour you describe then it will be logged as a bug. If others cannot reproduce it then we will know it is a problem only with your device, and it will need to be repaired.
