Hey, for Christmas I got a BOSS RC-30 Loop Pedal and its awesome however theres an issue.

When i set up my guitar it goes

Guitar ---> Loop ----> POD X3 Live ----> Amp

When this is done, I cant change my tone in the loop. I record it and if change tones on my POD it changes the tones on my loop, along with that it has a built in drum machine and if I have distortion on, the drum beats sound distorted too. It seems like the ideal set-up is

Guitar ----> POD X3 Live ---> Loop ----> Amp

However I get no sound when I use this setup I plug my guitar into the guitar in part of my POD, then use the Live out on the POD X3 to the live in on the Loop then from there Loop to Amp.

Help is greatly appreciated.
