RE: Line6 Delay Mod Pro or DL4 expression pedals?

  Hi Ian, Yes, and Yes.  The idea of feedback, when refering to a delay, is
that the  signal gets fed back into the delay circuit and then gets
repeated, and the process continues.   Feedback is the amount of that
signal which gets fed back, so if you don't feed as much signal back, the
repeates become softer and softer and softer, and eventually fade
completely.  If you feed the same signal level back, the repeats simply
continue as they are, at the same volume level, indefinitely...  
  Since alot of  what people are using is digital, the idea  of an analog
delay circuit is modeled in  different ways, but the concept of feedback is
  Anyway, others here, know much more on this, so hopefully someone can
elaborate on, or correct the fine points so this makes more sense.  -Hope
this helps.
