Electrix routing (was Re: Repeater frenzy)

I just got a MOFX and FilterFactory recently, and this is the
first thing I did!  Only one FF, but I had a Vortex in the mix
too.  Had a lovely time with the wavedrum into this setup.  I of
course had the delays of the MOFX and the Vortex feeding back
into each other, and using the sweep pedal to modulate the delay
times on the Vortex.  *cackle*
