Here's two examples.

The first is relatively boring; I threw a quick nasty loop into my RDS 3.6
and hit hold.  I walk through the various non-destructive permutations of
the LFO (there are quite a few sounds; I just go for "representative") in
relation to the loop.

The second is what you can do with other 80s el-cheapo rack units in
conjunction with one of the RDS delays.  For this example, I used my trusty
ebow into my Fender Deluxe 112's distortion channel, with a Boss DE-200
rack delay running serial into an RDS 3.6 and out again.  At times, I loop
both units and layer on top with the ebow, and with a little effort, some
amusing live sounds can be gotten for a very low price.

Hope that helps you out.
