I have a total newb question too. When I engage the pedal/effects via the footswitch there is a lag. Like the kind of lag that cuts off any signal from the guitar at all for what seems like almost a full second. Is this normal? Or fixable?
Are you referring to the Looper specifically or just the H9 in general? You'll have to be way more specific as to which algorithm and/or preset this affects. Perhaps you should start a different thread if this has nothing to do with the Looper.
