Guitar - General/Effects pedals


Hey I recently got a boss rc-30 dual track looper. I also have a pretty old digitech rc300 multi effects pedal which needs a new power adaptor. I'm just wondering if I can connect the two pedals and if I do when I record something on the loop station and then change the effect on the multi effects pedal will it change what I've recorded as well? Say, if I wanted to play rhythm with a clean delay could I play lead over top distorted or using a chorus effect? Just wanting to know as it is new to me and goes over my head a bit. Also if the answer is no, what would I need to purchase? Would I need to build a pedal board with individual stomp boxes?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Hey Sarah-Jane, yes you can use the two units together. If you record with a clean delay, changing over to a distortion sound will not alter what you have already recorded. All you have to do is plug the Digitech into the looper & you're good to go. I would suggest that you start accumulating Stomp Boxes so that you can eventually get rig of the Digitech. All in one effects units tend to be pretty poor sounding with stomp boxes being more versatile & much better sounding in general. Hope that helps, if you need anything else, just drop me a line.
Have fun!
Peace - J.
