Hey guys I have run into a recent problem with my Spider 75 IV when trying to use the looper. Whenever I create a loop, and then switch to another channel with my FBV express (i.e. recording clean track then switching to crunch to jam), the created loop and jam track switches channels also. For example, if a record a loop on the clean red channel,  then switch the the red crunch to jam, the loop switches channels also; it starts playing in crunch red. I first i Thought it might be an issue with the footboard, but it also happens when I press the channel buttons on the amp as well; the loop simply changes and plays on whatever channel i select after recording. Anyone have any solutions??? Help is much appreciated.

You have just discovered the inherent problem with the built-in Spider looper.   Unfortunately, without an FX loop, using an external looper to do this won't work either.  The only way to do it would be to take the headphone/lineout from the amp into an external looper, then run that to another amp (or PA system).

The thing is I have done it before; the recorded loop would stay playing with whatever settings it was on, and I could change channels and play over it without the loop changing. Could it be the updated firmware?

No, you are mistaken - you could never do that with the Spider IV looper - it is inserted after the preamp/FX section of the device.

Yes, you can switch patches, but your recorded loop also changes.

hmmm strange just tested again and mine doesn't change (the loop),even with overdubs 

on my amp if i record a loop and switch between a b c and d or bank up/down the loop stays the preset it was recorded in,so in my opinion it is possible or is my amp/firmware wrong or broken,i don't believe so,i hope not ;)
