What does this foot switch do?

Seems to be a simple routing box - the input can be sent to an external 'Effects Loop' (hence the name) or not. The LED indicates whether the loop is switched in or not. The capacitors reduce ...

As per Todd's comment, both of these performers are doing 'live looping', using equipment that you could broadly describe as 'loopers'. Reggie Watts is using the Electro-Harmonix 2880 Super Multi-...

Should loop based songs conform to whole measures?

It's certainly simpler to "conform to whole measures," but this can also result in songs that sound repetitive, predictable, or "blocky." I'd also point out that the concept of a "measure" can vary ...

What kind of cable between Amp, Looper and Monitor

Standard screened jack-to-jack cables. No need for anything fancy. Just the very first run, from guitar to Kemper, deserves care. The low level into high impedence of a guitar signal can be ...

Using a looper with the 4-cable-method (4CM)

Why no fun? Likely because the 4cm puts effects in front of the amp and also between the pre-amp and final power amp stage. If you wanted the ENGL output to go to the RC-300, then you would need ...

Using a looper with the 4-cable-method (4CM)

I don't have the answer but I know what is not the answer. It has nothing to do with the 4CM. The looper has no idea that you are using the 4CM. If you are producing sound through your GT output on ...

Modeling amp with FX Loop

Sounds like your assumption is correct, as putting the looper between guitar and (pre)amp will only let you record the dry guitar sounds. Routing it send/return will work, as it'll pick up the sound ...

What kind of cable between Amp, Looper and Monitor

The cables themselves all need to be screened - as in a central core, and wire wrapped round it. Exactly like a normal, regular guitar lead. The plugs will most likely be standard jacks, 1/4", but ...
