Re: Bass FX

I run my computer based rig like this all the time and
it's a way cheaper path than the Eventide/Looperlative
route, if cash is an issue.

I think the key to getting a clean sound but effects
on a loop is having a mixer with effects sends.  This
way you can really mix and match your looper/effects
to suit your instrument and taste.
