RE: Long DL4 post (response from Line6)
From Line6, regarding the effect of the expression pedal in Loop/Delay
(on the DL4):
"The expression pedal works the same way in the Loop Sampler mode as
it does in the regular delay mode. You can set the toe-down position
of the pedal to one setting of the knobs (excluding the model
selector knob) and the heel-down position to another setting. For
example you could have the toe-down position set for the loop mix
(mix knob) at maximum, the delay level (tweez) at medium, the delay
modulation (tweak)at minimum, the delay repeats at half-way, and the
delay time set fast (say 3 o'clock). You could then put the pedal in
the heel-down position and set the knobs for the loop level at
minimum, the delay level at maximum, the modulation at minimum, the
repeats at minimum and the delay time long (say 9 o'clock). Now when
your playing (and the play/stop button is switched on), putting the
pedal in the toe down position will give you the loop at full
volume, pre-loop delay that is of medium volume volume with no
modulation and a fast time. When you switch to heel-down, you'd get
no loop (even with the play/stop button swithced on)with a long
single delay that is very loud.
The loop sampler can either play the loop indefinitely (until you
hit the stop button)or play it one time only then stop (Button C).
It will not trail off on it's own. You would have to use the
expression pedal to ride it's level."
I guess this answered my questions.
