Depends on what you're trying to do, but here's something that works for me
(and my didj):
1) Hold the bell end of the didj far away from the mic.
2) Hit RECORD, then start playing the didj.
3) Move the bell end of the didj into your normal playing position by the
4) End the recording by hitting OVERDUB.  That is, go into OVERDUB directly
from record.
5) Move the bell end of the didj away from the mic.

So steps 1-3 fade-in the didj and steps 4,5 fade-out the didj.  Which 
eliminate the clunk or bump at the loop point.

I use an EDP so you may have to modify this some for the DL4, but I think 
will still work.

Yep, I'd say that pretty much covers us!
