I have a Line-6 Echo Park (it was a present...) Delay, and I was trying to figure out how to create different layers to play over, much like a simple looping/rhythm station. It starts out fine, but then the loop begins to distort and phase out and eventually just turns to a nasty mush. Is there any way to make a good loop/layer with a simple delay pedal?

That's because of how you're using it.

With the Echo Park, to make it into a looper, you're going to need to do something key.

Set the tap to where it will repeat once you are done playing it, set the repeats to infinity, but most importantly TURN OFF THE PEDAL WHEN YOU'RE DONE PLAYING THE LINE. You're going to want it on Digital with no modulation. You need the trails to be on.

not really, youd need a loop station for that. closest thing you could get to is turning the feedback all the way up so when you play something it doesnt die out, then play over that. but the problem with that is it doesnt work as a loop well.

That's the nature of delay pedals. I don't know much about the Echo Park but if it has a digital delay setting, put it on that because it might do the trick. That's why looping and delay have different pedals, they do different things. Delay mimics the sound of old fashioned tape delays which do fade out and "mush up" and this is part of their charm. You might just have to buy a loop station. Either that or record yourself on your computer and solo over that

unless the pedal has an actual looping function, then the only way is with feedback or repeats set to infinity which results in everything be looped and will just sound like mush

Not if you play one line and turn on the bypass.

The one line you played will then delay infinite times and then you'll be playing in the bypass, which would obviously mean what you're playing is not going to be delayed.

I already HAVE an infinite hold!
I want a real looper.
