After playing with this again for awhile I remembered the (IMHO) best 
feature of this delay. With any delay mode and tap tempo engaged I put the 
feedback anywhere short of full, play and tap up to 4 sec.. Then twist the 
feedback knob to 100%, this engages the hold function. You can play along 
and it doesn't get added to the loop. Lower it to less than 100% and add 
more. I had to add a knob extension to the feedback control to make a "toe 
controller". lol
