Zipper Noise, an example

Following the "Zipper Noise" discussions (and other looping related  
topics) I recorded this short clip this morning:


You hear the zipper noise (of the TC Electronix FireworX) when I use  
the MIDI expression pedal to adjust the volume, something you do a  
lot when playing guitar (but never with wind instruments). It's a  
little annoying but not that bad that I wouldn't use the volume pedal  
at concert. Strange thing is that when I use a MIDI expression pedal  
to adjust the beat sync tempo division for the LFO bound filter (on  
the reverb return) there is no such noise.

This short song also demonstrates some things I think are cool with  
Mobius. Like for example the Shuffle function (cuts up the loop in  
segments, re-orders or reverses the segments). Here the Shuffle is  
very "stuttery" because the loop was first created with "8ths Per  
Cycle = 12" (yes, it's a waltz) but before kicking the Shuffle button  
I changed that to "8ths Per Cycle = 48" to have the loop cut up in  
shorter segments. Also, two "Time Warp" scripts are used at the end  
(goes into Overdub and then jumps between different settings of Rate  
Shift). And finally, the infinite Undo is used to step back from that  
chaotic part I rambled into just before the end.
