Re: Sp-202 loop pop

This post gave me the clever idea to ride the record level on the 202
while I was recording my loop (to do a fade in/fade out kind of thing),
but I found out you can't change the record level during the actual
recording.  My next brightest idea was to ride the level on my synth's
vca, but I haven't got the coordination tonight to make everything work
smoothly together.
Maybe tomorrow.
