I just bought a Boss RC20 Looping Station and I have a quick question. My original intent for buying the pedal was to record clean tracks and solo over them using distortion. However I find that when I record a clean track and switch to distortion to solo, the clean track also becomes distorted. I think this is happening because I am using the distortion built into my amp. My question is, do I have to buy a seperate distortion pedal to solo this way or am I just not hooking something up right?
Do you have an effect loop on your amp? If yes, then the RC 20 should go in there
If not, then you'll have to buy a distortion pedal and put it before the RC-20
