You could put the looper into the FX loop of the HD or the DT. If using in the loop of the HD, put the FX loop block last in your signal chain.

 

A sidenote pertaining to the HD500 looper:

 

-set it to half speed before you start the loop and you will get twice the length of loop time

What are you hoping to do with the looper? The JM4 does a lot more than just looping. It gives you the ability to play backing tracks, and it has on-board amp modeling and effects. If you don't need all those options, there are less expensive options available to you.

Thanks so much for the replies,What I really want to be able to do is record a track and have it play back through the amp so that I can play along with it.Now as far as the amp modeling and fx go I think the pod has that covered but I like the idea of being able to play backing tracks.And I would like to stay with line 6 equip.                                                                                                                                                                                                            Thanks Dave

the JM4 is basically a foot pedal version of the spider jam amp.

i don't think it will work like you want it to.

I have done a similar thing with my Boss RC300... but that may be overkill for what you're trying to do.

Hi I have a line 6 JM4 Looper. Is it possible to use this with my Line 6 112 Spider valve amp?

I have tried it connecting to the 'preamp in' socket but the noisy hum level renders it useless for live work.

The looper works fine with a fender practice  amp.
