EDP Multiply without recording revisited

You can record using multiply and not add new material if you are in delay
mode and have the volume pedal backed down.

And then Gozanabit explains:

Here's why--
Sometimes I have a phrase which works as the first part of a phrase, but
needs to be a multiple, i. e., it does not repeat enough times--you know,
like the first 4 bars of the blues, say.
Then I want to insert the next part, but in order to fool the audience into
thinking that it's live (!), I need to keep playing thru the doubling of 
first part while I multiply to get to the proper place in the progression.
See, I'm not using any more than one loop yet.  I haven't needed or wanted
to switch between loops since the Echoplex has such an abundance of power.
Much better to compose the tune and arrange the parts as I go along--then 
will play correctly ''til Kingdom come (or the audience gets ugly).
Unfortunately there is this limitation.  Good to know what the boundaries
are . . .
