Re: Advice sought - unbroken, seamless loops

Hello -

I saw Robert Fripp do something similar with harmonized delay here in  
Memphis a few weeks ago with an Eventide (He had four Eventide  
devices, two were H4000s, but I couldn't get a glimpse of the other  

I have to de-lurk and go out on a limb here as well. Being one of the  
few wind players here, I can tell you the only device I've played  
that delivers truly seamless loops is the old Lexicon JamMan. With  
flutes, playing long, sustained notes and building up chords and  
pads, every other device I've tried does indeed have a small bump at  
the beginning of the loop. I haven't tried the Looperlative yet,  

I can see how a rhythmic instrument player, like a guitarist or  
bassist might find this simply inane nit-picking, but at least for  
the wind player, believe me, this little bump can be a major  
aggravation. It's the main reason I'm still using Lexicon JamMans and  
not something newer.
