Re: "hold note" function
Another option (cheaper) available to you is the DIgitech Digidelay.
as well as having lots of delay time, tape emulation and reverse it also
two ways of achieving HOLD.
one is the aptly named HOLD setting which lets you sample about four
of sound and have it play infinatly over, you can also add to this by
pressing the pedal again, I like this setting alot for drones and small
patterns which I then multiply out on the DL-4. if its a prone you want
are best recording a blank bit first (juast hold the pedal down for a
then let go. then when you hold the peedal down again to overdub there is
the other option which I think is such a cool idea, is that the regular
delays operate like DD-whatevers with repeats going from none to nearly
infinate, but with the last o'clock turn being reserved for taking the new
signal out of the delay path, this means that you can create delay drones
till you get something you like , then hold it and play over rather then
into it, then when you are ready , twist the knob again and play back into
