Here's how to do this:
- Instead of using Insert, use Multiply.
- Start the multiply, and let one repetition play, this will be the one
- at the second cycle of the multiply, drop feedback to 0 as you begin
playing new stuff.
- Continue playing for however many "inserts" you want to do.
- End multiply, and return feedback to 100% as the original cycle starts
Because it is Multiply, the original material continues to play as you add
new material. Because you still have Mix set to Loop, nothing you play at
that time is being heard as you play it, but it is being added to the
Because feedback is at 0 while you are multiplying, the original material
in the later cycles of the multiply will be gone the next time around,
leaving only the new stuff. You will only hear the old stuff as the
Multiply is being done, so the sound does not stop for the audience.
