Hello,

I use Line 6 UX2 with Podfarm as software to play my guitar. So this is how I usually connect:

 

Guitar -> UX2 -> Computer (Podfarm)
                   |

              Headphones

 

 

Now I bought a Loop pedal and I do this:

 

Guitar -> Loop Pedal -> UX2 -> Computer (Podfarm)
                                            |

                                     Headphones

 

 

And it works perfectly fine! No delay or whatsoever.

 

My question is whenever I play something, let's say Am C D F as a loop with CLEAN sound

and then on my Layer 2 want to play solo over this, and click "Pedal ON" on my Podfarm the Layer 1 also changes. So how do I solve this problem?

I want to be able to:

 

Layer 1. Clean acoustic sound, looping!

Layer 2. Distortion Solo.

Layer 3. Another sound etc.

 

So how do I do this with the UX2? Please help.

Once you have recorded your loop as a track........which i assume you did.  I'd just extent that  within Reaper as many bars as you needed.

Then....simply record additional tracks with what ever effects you need........ignoring the loop pedal entirely.

Yeah that is how I do now but it is not the way I want to do as I spent 200 dollars on a loop pedal...

 

One question, if I have ONE specific distortion pedal.

 

Does it sound the same with any amp?

 

Dist Pedal -> Amp 1

Dist Pedal -> Amp 2

 

Do I get different sounds? I am thinking about Podfarm 2.5 Software, if I use a pedal before the looper and if I change the sounds on podfarm, will I get different each time or does the pedal replace all sounds from podfarm?

I always thought multi-tracking eliminates the need for a loop pedal. Using it for live work is where I would use it.

To loop in real time you will want to put the pedal after the UX, this will allow you to create layers with different patches.

 

Yes, distortion pedals will sound different thru different amps.
