Mono looper mode (why we need to give stereo up to move effect return after stereo effects/cab)

    We've been asking Atomic to give us an option to move the effects loop after the cabs. Using a looper with Amplifire is somewhat of a compromise. Use it before the AA or in the effects loop, and your loops change in sound as you change patches, etc. Use it after the AA and you only get the loop on the one output your choosing (send it to FOH or monitors ... your choice).

    Turns out that it's not that simple to move the effects loop. The effects loop send is mono ... which leads to an issue if we want to put it after the stereo blocks.

    I'd be more than happy to give up stereo through the entire signal chain to be able to move the effects loop to the end of the chain.

    If you are happy to give up stereo through the entire signal chain (as you suggest) then your solution is already there.
    if its just a looper, surely it can be added on the physical outputs of the AA?
    that way it still leaves the FX send/return free for effects.
    I cant imagine a situation where a looper not at the end of the signal chain would be useful.

    apologies if i have misunderstood.

    Why only one output? A stereo looper (like the Boss RC-1 or TC Electronic Stereo Ditto) should cover both outputs, right?

    That might work, but would need to convert the XLR of the AUX to TS (and likely back to XLR).

    Doesn't cover the headphone out which is great for late night practice....

    Certainly all of these can be solved with extra hardware, but the AA is so close to having this; one software change would address all this.
