Re: Loopers do it repeatedly (was Re: Fw: THIS IS FOR REAL. (THIS IS A LOOP BASED MUSIC LIST!)

Its tricky to end a performance with a loop, however, the tricks that I 
use are to build up a crescendo with the electric violin towards the end 
of the piece, then hitting the stop button at the same time I hit a 
power chord on the violin.

The only other way that I have found is to assign a volume pedal to the 
master volume, and do a realtime fade-out - but that sucks. I'm 
experimenting at the moment in being able to change the Repeater's 
feedback level via the assignable volume pedal. Then - towards the end 
of the loop section, you can move the feedback from 90% down to 50% or 
lower - it will allow for some quite good morphing.

This should be possible to adapt with most repeaters.
