one of my main edp page/bank on the pmc10 is 
top row Feedback : 0    32      64      96      127
botom row volume : 0    60      80      100

The 100 value is not the max because I want to keep some volume on the
side in case of volume mismatch
the whole range is taken care by my peavey pc1600X wich is EDP friendly
(but not a footcontroler)

the feedback in steps allows me to, while not playin, enter overdub and
at some musical point
hit a lower feedback value and begin playin new material that will take
its place in the loop very easily when the loop is already crowded. Its
a good way to change subject.

The above values are to be adapted on your own system and music

If Sean http://sean_.home.mindspring.com/pmc/index.html once gives us
Cut copy and paste in his pmc10 PC editor (Raymond) we could exchange
patches and banks.........
