I'd love to listen to that sometime. probably a stupid question, but do
know if it's ever been released on CD?

I do that with my JamMan, but without a digital feedback control it
a lot of fiddling with the input level knob! I've been thinking of fitting
a "fine tune volume" control (probably on my feedback volume control).

I'm in the middle of a BIG rig update; out go the pedals, in come the big
digital kit! I could go with a floormount system (ie a GT5 feeding my JM
and feedback pedal) or a rackmount (in which case feedback volume would be
controlled by a Lex MPX-100 via a MIDI pedal). The only problem with the
rackmount is that my looper system requires an open-closed gate pedal
now, a distortion pedal with the volume turned off); the only way I can
think to replicate this is by feeding the looper from the "left" rack
output, the amp from the "right" and see if the left O/P can be switched
on/off by MIDI (a bit like a pan control, but not affecting the right
With the rackmount, the MPX in the loop would be ripe for serious loop
lunacy. Of the other hand, the GT5 is easier - and a LOT cheaper.
