Loopers with Spark

I’ve noticed that when I use my loop pedal with the spark and then change my presets, the loop changes to those presets as well. Any way around this?

I would expect the Looper to work exactly the way you describe it if you are going from Guitar to Looper to Spark 40. Your looper is recording your basic guitar sound and then sending it to the Spark, where the Preset is applied to the looper signal within the Spark, including all the pedal chain selections and associated settings. When you change to a different Spark Preset, the Spark applies it to the basic guitar recording from the looper.
When using a standard amplifier/pedal chain, you go from the guitar through your pedal chain to the looper and finally through the amplifier. The looper records the combined guitar/pedal selections/settings before entering the amp. Your looper plays back the sculpted signal you recorded, not just the clean guitar as in the Spark setup. With the standard setup, you (usually) leave the amp unchanged, change guitar and pedal selections, and play over the loop; if you change any amp settings, the changes affect both the looper and “accompanying” signal mix.
You may be able to accomplish what you want through a recording package where you capture the Spark 40 output via the USB Port and then play over that; however that’s way beyond my knowledge base and interest level 😎
