Watch the Creating A Loop With Auto Start online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Creative Looping Handbook

To simplify the looping process, you can assign the pedal to use Auto Start if you’re having trouble with timing the foot. Auto Start is engaged by pressing the Rhythm on/off button and holding down the tempo button, then using the up/down button to page up to "AU." AU will blink in the display and the record light will flash red.

When you're ready to record, press the footswitch. Compose yourself and start to play when ready. The pedal will automatically go into record mode when you start to play. Once you've recorded your sequence, press the pedal again to review or continue overdubbing. Now let’s take a look at how that works by creating a loop using this method.
