I love my HD100 MkII now that Line 6 has fixed a couple pet peeves of mine but one still remains.

 

The quick loop is a very useful tool, especially when practising solos or other parts, which is my primary use for this feature. But, can you play a 12 bar blues pattern in 14 seconds? I am ammazed that I have not found any other complaints about this fairly obvious failing of this feature.

 

Is there a mod of some kind to increase the loop time beyond the very limiting 14 seconds?

Well I was thinking there might be a programming modification that changes the way the available memory is used. I understand that it is probably not pheasible to modify the circuit board.

 

14 seconds....who came up with that in the first place. Poor design.

if i recall correctly... it didn't even ship with a looper at all... i think that came with a firmware update.

meaning it was never part of the original design, and they figured a way later to make something usable.. (even if imperfect)

of course i could be wrong since i don't have the amp... just seem to recall discussions when the firmware update was released.
