    I got an RC 20XL loop station (the smaller version) for christmas, and I'm gradually figuring out how to use it (its complicated lol), but there's one real problem. I can dub over as many things as I like on the clean channel with no problem, and it sounds good, but as soon as I use distortion, the guitar parts go all fuzzy, like playing two notes on a guitar together with distortion. It's as if i was playing the parts at the same time on the same guitar, there's loads of distortion in between them.

    And also when I change the amp settings before overdubbing, the saved phrase sounds different, so it won't let me use two different amp settings in one phrase, for example, the backing rhythm on clean, with a distorted lead guitar on the top. I suppose its to be expected, since the pedal is running through the amp, but surely there's a way to get around it?

    I hope that's clear lol, I find it hard to explain.

    Also is there a special sub-forum for instruments? I'm not expecting many replies, lol.
