The Looper block in the Axe-Fx II is a great feature for any musician, especially soloists. In this video I show you how to add a Looper block to your preset for both live performance and creating tones. I also describe some of the important parameters in the block, some tricks I use when playing live. I finish up with some basic looping techniques and concepts.
