Spider Iv 75 Trying To Use Boss Rc-3 Looper

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use a Boss RC-3 looper on a Spider IV 75 amp and the original loop sounds good,  by trying to play over it or overdubbing sounds very choppy with reduced volume,  Any one have any ideas or comments for me.

 

Thanks alot.

Here's the deal....you have to put any effects BEFORE the looper.

Think about it...whatever goes into the looper comes out, right?  If you are plugged straight into the looper, you are capturing the guitar signal ONLY.  Any tone shaping is happenning in the Spider.  So you drop a loop and then change to some other setting, and start an overdub...depending on what settings you chose, perhaps a filter or trem or whatever, the signal you first recorded AND the new one is being pumped into it.  Make sense?

 

With the effcts before the looper, you record the effect sound, then it gets amplified.  When you change effects, the original sound is still in tact and your new tones are now being captured and/or played back.
