When recording my first loop in Reverse mode and stop recording, the playback is not in reverse unless I disengage the FX switch. I want the audio to play back in reverse immediately so I can solo on top of it. Is this possible?
Yes, we have a little feature that allows you to do just that:
Instead of hitting the Loop switch again (to stop recording), When you start recording your initial loop in reverse, hit the FX switch again - this will stop the recording, disengage the Reverse FX and start an overdub so your loop is played back in reverse immediately, enabling you to solo on top of it right away.
