RE: Repeater answer: dry/wet mix option NOT avaliable

as a brand new RepeaTer operator, let me echo the original poster's
concern.  i ran into this problem in practice right off the bat, & have
blown one speaker fuse so far because of this.  i loop acoustic instruments
via microphones.  i always run my other loopers with mix 100% loop to avoid
feedback.  this also works better in a studio setup w/ the looper as an
effects send, as i always want independant control of the level of the
source vs the level of the loop.  with RepeaTer, there isn't any way to
keep the source signal out of the loop output.

this is a workaround, but we lose the FX insert capability, which is one of
RepeaTers coolest features.

not really.  as noted above, this creates a volatile feedback situation if
using microphones as sources.

this is a significant limitation of RepeaTer for my use of it.  i hope that
it can be addressed in a near future firmware upgrade.

in the meanwhile, life is limitations, and i'll continue using RepeaTer
anyway.  :-)
