I also have a Headrush that is fed a signal from an effect send.
However, I return it's output to a channel. This allows me to play with
the EQ on the Headrush's channel. By sending THIS channel to the
Headrush, the EQ effects alter what's looping. Or I can choose to leave
the effect send off and loop in the normal manner.
I think your problem may lie more with the limitations of the Headrush
itself, rather than your problem being a hardware issue. The Echoplex,
for instance, *will* give you more control over previous layers than the
Headrush does, iirc. (I've never used the EDP, only read about it here.)

At <http://groups.yahoo.com/group/zonemobius> you can learn about the
Mobius looping software.
