Looper Please



  • Love the amp the new firmware beta has fixed some issues esp function change clipping noise/sound drop. Biggest want /wish /need /idea Looper Please this amp will be the ultimate practice amp.



  • @quackshack Couldn't you use a looper pedal between the guitar and the amp? I realize that having one built into the Spark would be great, but as long as your looper pedal doesn't color the sound noticeably, that might work. Although I agree that having one built into the app would be very nice.



  • @dhbailey Going that route means any changes to the effects within the Spark amp changes the loop tones. Ideally, a looper built into the amp would be at the last point in the chain.

    An effects loop would be ideal, as it would allow for the use of a looper with more features, such as the Trio+, which offers a better style variety of "jam buddies" than the internal SmartJam feature.
    But that's a hardware issue and obviously not going to happen on this platform.
    The next best thing would be to add a looper option at the end of the signal chain in the software. That would be a big welcome addition in flexibility for practice, and even solo "coffee shop" performance.

    Yeah. Positive Grid should buy out Quantiloop and stuff it in.



  • @rcotter As I understand it, there can't be a looper in the hardware because there is no file storage for recorded audio files, and it can't be in the app because there is no audio signal direct to the app. Latency in the Android platform would be problematic as well. As other people have said, an effects loop would be the best hardware solution.
