Looper Pedal Question

I recently bought the boss loop station single pedal. I'll just give an
example of my problem. Our band covers "don't stop believing" by
journey. We don't have a piano player so I looped the intro piano to
cover it. I play lead guitar and I need to be able to play the solo in
the intro in a dirty lead tone, but when i kick on my tube screamer
the Loop gets dirty. Is there a way to keep the look clean and still
change tone for my guitar?

Try placing the distortion pedal before the loop pedal in the efx
chain.

Thank you. I'm playing out of a hot rot deluxe fender amp with two
channels. As soon as i hit my boost channel (for dirty tone) on the
footswitch, the loop gets dirty. Thats a problem considering there
is no chain for the footswitch...

Just run the loop station through the efx loop on the amp, then.

Put the loop pedal directly into the PA and not in your effects
chain.
Which version of the Boss RC pedal do you have?
The big one has multiple outputs you can patch to various amps.

I have the RC2 single pedal. I'd also want to be able to loop on the
fly. That is, lay a rhythm track down and be able to solo over it, not
just play stored samples. Can that be done if the pedal is plugged
into the PA?

Looks like you may need another amp and an ABY switch.

Morley makes a good ABY, the amp is up to you.

Got GAS?

Hi chris

If your amp is dirty the loops will be dirty no matter what . eaisest method is to put an overdrive pedal before the loop station . record them clean then hit the dirt for the solo .
