    Hi there,

    TL;DR please and the ability to put loop after the cabinet block.

    Since the Amplifire has no looper, I use a Boss RC-2 looper in the FX loop. When playing through headphones or FRFR setup, the IR cabinet is applied to the loop, so I can't change IRs without the prior loops being changed too, due to the loops never having had recorded the amp + IR, only the amp with the loop having the IR applied post loop.

    Thanks.

    This seems like a simple thing to support .. and it would makeup for the lack of a looper in the device. I think this is just Aux-In mode with "Loop Send" containing the fully processed output (as opposed to the dry, unprocessed guitar DI signal). Ideally we can put the loop in/out just before the output.

    The issue with using a looper in location 5, is that changing patches causes the loop to go through reverb and cab changes. When you lay down that rhythm in a loop, the rhythm sound changes quite jarringly when you change the lead patch.

    Putting the looper after the Amplifire only works on the main output and misses thew aux/FOH (as well as other subtle things like preventing the looper on/off from being part of a patch change).

    I would like this too. I have a boss RC3 and it has an aux in, which I could use if it were placed after the cab block.
