How to stop recording a loop? in Helix Posted April 21, 2018 > I think, you want to be able to stop it without it immediately playing back. Correct. > even if you could stop it right away, if you stop playback and hit record again it overwrites the previous recording That's fine. This is only really critical for getting rid of a recording that has a mistake in it. Which is funny, because in overdubbing mode that's what the UNDO button does. (Still can't believe that UNDO doesn't just stop recording when you're on the first loop.) Even my 15 year old Digitech GNX5 had a dedicated "Stop/Undo" button built in to the onboard looper.
