Well, you'll want to use the algorithm selector knob to choose the Looper algorithm. You'll want to make sure your TimeFactor is in Performance mode, not Bank mode. In Performance mode you can use the three footswitches to record, play and stop. You change from one mode to another by long pressing the right footswitch. Then, I guess you should just hit the far left footswitch to put the Looper in record and play something into it. The far right footswitch will stop recording, and the middle footswitch will play back what you recorded. If you can play something in and get it to play back, then the Looper's help file will be helpful for you from that point on to understand the various adjustments you can make to the knobs to affect the Looper algorithm.
