Re: Request help and advice on simple EDP process...(more)

One more thing...  Was trying to deal with feedback in nextloop (as in
playing a loop in with feedback down via the knob) so as to only have one
repeat of the added cycle to the previous loop ...  But it appears now the
knob doesn't work "that way"...  No feedback pedal inserted, by the way...
By the by, more info is that this is recently returned from shane with an
absolutely clean bill of health... Has to be operator malfunction...  Sorry
I'm lost...  I never seem to know enough about this machine, even with all
the stellar printed stuff on the site...  Which I have as a sort of second
