Re: splitting a guitar signal/feelin' like Stevie Reich

I settled on the cheapo solution- a Y-adapter from Radio Shack that cost me
$3.49.  I haven't noticed any serious sound degradation, but I'm not using
anything even vaguely professional anyway.  I did look at the Morley
switcheroo pedal; it looks nice but I can't justify spending $40+ on that
right now.

Anyhoo, I've just been playing with my new setup, which now features 2 DOD
DFX94 sampler pedals, the new one courtesy of Mr Biffle below.  Setting 'em
up with 2 different delay times and listening to the loops going in and out
of phase is as much fun as I thought it would be!

Also listening to Orbital's "In Sides" and realizing how much I have to
learn about drum programming...
