Re: Boss GT-3 Processor and looping

I'm less than a week into the GT-3, and it (and the Japlish manual, which 
printed on paper too thin for wrapping fish, otherwise it would be useful)
is not in front of me, but the GT-3 can pitch shift, can night shift, can
don a casual cotton shift and shift into reverse at 60mph, can hit the 
key on your computer from across the room. I'm pretty sure you can get it 
think it's a Digitech Whammy, and for d-e-e-p "What The Fuck?"-ism, dig: 
Auto Riff function can cause any note on the guitar to spew out up to
sixteen different notes of any flavor in a four-octave range. That's a
different 16-note pattern for every chromatic note, or 16 x 12.
Schoenbergian atonalists, take note, or 16 notes, as it were.
