DrRighteous Posted July 31, 2020 Share Posted July 31, 2020 The looper in the HX Effects is useless to anyone who wants to sync to anything. If you are a solo artist and you always set the tempo - I'm sure it's fine. I know that midi-sync is probably a feature that would involve more programming than Line 6 want's to invest in, but how about just letting us set the delay time for the looper? That's how looping was done back in the day. When Fripp was playing into a tape loop, he already knew the tape length/loop time/bpm, so if he wanted to, he could reasonably sync to something. The delays in the HX Effect allow you to do just that, and then use a footswitch to 'hold' the delay. That's a looper! and a more useful looper than the 'looper' they included. If you set your delay time to the maximum of 2 seconds, that's one bar of 120-bpm, and that will stay in sync for a good while, assuming their internal clock is a solid digital source. But 2 seconds is not enough for loop artists. We want to loop 4 bars of 80bpm, and those 2 seconds of delay won't cut it. Sorry about the rant, it's easy to make a basic looper useful to more people, and yet it's still so rare. S. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
