does the Pro have the same frustrating 'feature' of the DP/4 std: there is
no true 100% feedback setting.  between 2 adjacent feedback values, one
slowly but surely decays and the next higher slowly overloads?  also,
trying to use 2 loop delays in parallel for stereo fails because the stop
time seen by one may be just a tad different from the other, causing the L
& R loops to go out of syncronization. (fwiw, my DP/4 Std is underused and
can be had for $450 + COD.)
