Re: how to vary loops

Right, what the Repeater does with it's effects loop is totally 
possible with some sort of routing device... maybe an additional 
mixer/router combination.  For me, being able to step on a MIDI pedal 
and change my effect from at the input, to on the loop (not effecting 
the input at all) with out any extra hardware is crucial... well, maybe 
not crucial, but fun.

This makes me think of the paradyne issues between the Repeater and the 
EDP.  Very interesting, IMO.  To me, it seems like the Repeater looks 
at audio like Silly Putty.  The EDP looks at audio like Legos.  Oh, if 
only you could get a Stereo EDP for $600...
