Battery
This option includes an internal connection, *holder clip, and 9V Energizer Industrial battery installed.   *(when applicable)

Rubber Feet
3M
Rubber feet mounted to each corner on the bottom.  On larger units, 6 feet are installed.


Tuner Mute
A switch that when pressed (on) sends the signal to the Tuner Send jack and totally mutes the signal to the amp.  When pressed again (off), allows the signal to pass, and totally removes the tuner from the signal path  (Can also operate as a built in A/B switch).

Master Bypass
A switch that when pressed bypasses all of the loops, sending the signal straight from the Input to the Output.  This is especially hand when you want to have several loops on, and then go to a totally clean sound with the press of the button.  You can also specify that the Master Bypass only apply to certain loops (in sequence).

Stutter
This option allows the user to press a momentary footswitch which brings the loop (and whatever effect(s) in the loop) into the signal path for only as long as the switch is pressed down.  This allows you to create stutter effects easily.  Leave the loop empty to create EVH style stutters.  This option also includes a switch which allows you to choose between normal loop operation or stutter operation.


Effects Loops Reversal
This option allows you to reverse the order of any two effects loops.  For example, if you have an overdrive in loop 1 and an envelope filter in loop 3, you can reverse the order so that the signal will go to loop 3 first (the envelope filter), then to loop 1 (the overdrive).  The signal with then flow through the other loops in sequence as normal.

*Parallel/Series Loops
This option allows you to select (by toggle switch) whether two loops operate in parallel or in series.  See the "Parallel operation" page for more info.

*Parallel Jacks
An additional Send and Return jack to the loop of your choice which supplies another loop in parallel with an existing loop.  Allows you to send signal to an additional effect(s) in the loop, so that both effects loops are parallel.  Especially useful for time-based effects (such as delay and modulation).  See the "Parallel operation" page for more info.

*Switchable Parallel Jacks
With this upgrade, a toggle switch is added so that you can assign the parallel Send and Return jacks to one of two loops.  (Whatever effects are in the parallel loop will be ran in parallel with the selected loop).
  See the "Parallel operation" page for more info.

*Please note- Loooper cannot guarantee the results of using various pedals in parallel.  In some instances, pedals do not function well when used in these configurations.  Contact us for more details.

Loop Assign
This option allows you to move a loop (within the Loooper) to the effects loop of your amp with the flip of a switch (a toggle switch is used for this application). For example, if you have a delay that you sometimes like in the buffered effects loop of the amp, and sometimes like in front of the amp, you simply connect the "Send" of the amp's loop to the "Send In" of the Loooper, then connect the "Return Out" of the Loooper to the "Return" of the amp's loop.  Then, using the assign switch, you can toggle between placing the effect(s) in front of the amp, or placing the effect(s) in the effects loop of the amp.  (Also, a stereo cable can be used with a "Y" splitter, so that you have the convenience on simply connecting one cable from the amp to the Loooper).

An example:
If you place a delay in front of the amp and set it so that it sounds good with your clean channel, then select the overdrive channel, the delay sounds terrible because the amp is adding gain to the delayed signal.  In this case it would be ideal to have the delay in the amp's effect loop, so that unity gain is achieved, and the delay will sound the same regardless of which channel is selected.
Sometimes you may like to use your delay for self-oscillation.  It is very difficult to get a delay to self-oscillate in an amp's effects loop.  In this instance it would be better for the delay to be in front of the amp, where a delay will self-oscillate much more easily and controllably.
In some instances, an amp's effects loop's buffering circuit can alter the sound of the effect.  Placing an effect in front of the amp guarantees no alteration in sound.


*Blend Pot
This option is for use with pedals that do not have a "level" or other knob.  This allows you to blend DRY signal with the wet signal of a loop!  When turned clear left, you hear dry signal, when turned clear right, you hear wet signal, when turned to the center, you hear 1/2 wet and 1/2 dry.  Also includes a rocker switch which bypasses the blend pot, completely removing it from the signal path.  Can be added to any number of loops.  Choice of switches: Toggle switch, rocker switch (default), or toe-switch.  Can also use a footswitch and LED for the ON/OFF operation (add 15.00).

*Feedback Pot
This option adds a pot to the loop that when engaged, creates feedback.  Think of it as a "sound effects" knob.  This is useful to create crazy swells, whines, grunts, chirps, etc, all of course depending on the type of effect(s) put in the loop.  Also includes a rocker switch which bypasses the Feedback pot, completely removing it from the signal path.  Can be added to any number of loops.  Choice of switches: Toggle switch, rocker switch, or toe-switch (default).  Can also use a footswitch and LED for the ON/OFF operation (add 15.00).

*Volume Pot
This option allows you to control the volume in a specific loop.  This is passive, and operates like the volume on a guitar.  When turned clear to the left, volume is at 0%, when turned to the center, volume is 50%, and when turned clear to the right, volume is 100%.  Also includes a rocker switch which bypasses the volume pot, completely removing it from the signal path.  Can be added to any number of loops.  Choice of switches: Toggle switch, rocker switch (default), or toe-switch.  Can also use a footswitch and LED for the ON/OFF operation (add 15.00).

*Please note- Loooper cannot guarantee the results of using various pedals with the Blend Pot Option or Feedback Pot Option.  In some instances, pedals do not function well when used in these configurations.  Contact us for more details.

*Blend Expression Pedal Jack
This option adds a jack so that you can connect an expression pedal (such as the Roland
EV-5) to control the wet/dry blend of the signal, and a toggle switch to turn the expression pedal on/off (removing it completely from the signal path).

*Feedback Expression Pedal Jack
This is an add-on option to the Feedback Pot.  This option adds a jack so that you can connect an expression pedal (such as the Roland
EV-5) to control the amount of feedback, and a toggle switch to turn the expression pedal on/off (removing it completely from the signal path).

*Volume Expression Pedal Jack
This option adds a jack so that you can connect an expression pedal (such as the Roland
EV-5) to control the amount of volume up to the maximum as set by the main pot.  Can also be added without the Volume Pot option.  Can be applied anywhere in the signal path.


A/B Loops
Two effects loops which can be selected in an A/B fashion with one footswitch.  This is especially useful when you want to go from one sound to another (for example, an overdrive pedal to a chorus pedal).  You can literally switch between the pedals in one loop to the pedals in another loop with the press of one switch!  There's also a Master Bypass switch, so that you can bypass both loops.

A/B/Y Loops
Very similar to the A/B option, with an added switch that allows you to choose both loops together (A total of 3 switches; "A/B", "A&B",and "ON").   *Note: This option does not have an LED for the "BOTH" function by default.  If an LED for the "BOTH" function is desired, this costs an additional 25.00 (the use of a 4PDT switch must be employed, a rather expensive switch).

A/B/Y Loops with LED for "Both" function


A/B Inputs
Adds a built in A/B switch so that
you can switch between two inputs (eg, two different guitars).

A/B Outputs
Adds a built in A/B switch so that
you can switch between two outputs (eg, two different amps).

ABY  Inputs
Adds a built in A/B/Y switch to the beginning of the signal path.  
This allows you to choose between one of two inputs, or you can turn both inputs on together.  See the ABY's page for more information about ABY switching.

ABY Outputs
Adds a built in A/B/Y switch to the end of the signal path.  
This allows you to choose between one of two outputs, or you can turn both outputs on together.  See the ABY's page for more information about ABY switching.

Wet/Dry Selectable Outputs
Allows the user to choose wet (effected) or dry (un-effected) signal for each output (A and B) VIA toggle switches.  Available for the A/B Outputs Option or the A/B/Y Outputs.
