Loop with Distortion: DT50 + HD500X

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 I'm new to the forum and I just got a DT50 212 Combo to join my POD HD500X and I need some advice.

 

I want to Loop with distortion for in a live concert.

I mean, Record a Rhythm with Distortion, Loop it, and Solo over with Distortion.

Just like Paul Gilbert does in this video (at 1:47):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oc0yCiCvy6Y

 

He uses an AB pedal to switch between 2 amps, one for Rhythm and another amp for Solo.

 

Can I do this with one HD500X and just one DT50 212 Combo?

Or do I need to buy another DT50 212 Combo?

Or maybe one DT50 Head and use the speakers of the DT50 212 Combo?

 

Is it possible at all?

If not what's your advice for playing live with loops? Backing tracks?

 

Thanks in advance.

Pedro

pedromen, You do not need two DT50s to loop & solo as you described in your post.  You should be able to record the loop with whatever tone you wish, then solo over it with the same tone, or with a different tone (patch).  You can switch patches while the looper is playing back your recorded loop.  Not sure of the exact step by step process but I'm confident that is possible.  Best of luck!
