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.
