no, you can connect a pedal at any time and it is detected, even in 
LoopIII. Just checked. :-)

there is midi thru, no need for an external splitter. Definitely becomes a 
non-issue in LoopIV.

yes, that is what happens, unless you are in delay mode. Then pedal=input 
vol to delay, and knob=feedback.

should work. with the stereo out jacks on that pedal, you should be able 
make such a mod pretty easy so that each jack becomes an out to an 
and the switch only has to connect/disconnect them to the pot. You could 
even have a third option with both connected to their respective pot.

maybe you could add midi to it. :-)
