Re: workaround for gap in first loop? (was: Boss RC50 delay issues)
Interesting discussion. I suspect the Japanese engineers had a very
specific idea about how the RC 50 was to be used. Their video demos
really bring this point home. I don't think they envisioned it to be
used the way some loopers want to use it. I believe they see it as an
accompaniment tool. Phrases to be preloaded, fitting nicely into
preset spaces. Everything snug and tidy. If you use it like this, its
