Re: Advice sought - unbroken, seamless loops

The EDP and the Looperlative are excellent for use in
Kevin's email.  The Repeater, not as much.  I don't
have an issue with it but there's a tiny split second
bump in volume at the start of the loop.  Not a click
but it can be noticable.  I guess it's the price for
all the DSP crazyness that the Repeater does.

I don't know about the Line6 DL-4, but in stompboxes
the Boss Giga Delay will also make seamless loops and
is damn cheap.
