RE: question about stopbox loopers

Most people I know put their looping devices and reverb units (aka time 
based effects) after distortion, volume, wah, etc (aka amplitude based 
effects). This allows you to lay a loop of your instrument sounding like 
thing, then change the tone of your instrument for accompaniment or more 

Don't feel like there's some sort of rule you must follow though. I would 
suggest experimenting with different setups for different recordings and 

Personally, I arrange my looping units in sequence (one feeds into the 
other). This makes it easier to build fragmented and complex loops fairly 
quickly, especially when they're not in sync. Most other people I've seen 
with multiple loopers run them parallel, so they have more control over 
working with each loop independently.
