I'm thinking of buying a Boss RC-2 Loop Pedal, but I have a big question. I heard that you would have to plug in a distortion pedal before the loop if you want the recording distorted. Well, unfortunately, I don't have a dist. pedal, cos I use the distortion channels on my Vox AD30vt.
But I have a theory. So I play on the distorted channel on my amp. Then, I want to record a clean riff on the loop pedal, so I turn my pickup's volume knob to 1, which should make the guitar sound clean. Voila, the sound is clean. Now I want to play a solo distorted and make the pickup's volume back to 10, and the sound is distorted, with my recording still clean.
Would my theory work?

It would work but the solo would be way louder than the riff.

The amp doesn't happen to have an effects loop, does it?

If the amp has an effects loop, then it'll work.
