It's really basic.  This is from the manual:

If you assign “HOLD DLY” to the CONTROL pedal, you’ll be able to hold 
the delay
[1] “TIME” 1–8000 [ms] Sets the delay time.
[2] “FEEDBACK” 0.0–10.0 * Adjusts the amount of feedback.
[3] “TONE” 1.0–10.0 * Adjusts the tone of the delay sound.
[6] “MIX” 0.0–10.0 * Adjusts the mix amount of the delay sound.
CONTROL pedal: HOLD DLY: If you select “HOLD DLY” for the CONTROL
pedal, the delay sound will be held from the
moment you turn the pedal on.

Oh, it's confusing.  I am saying that I set the Tonelab to it's AMP 
mode for output, but I do not run it through a guitar amp, as is 
prescribed in the manual.  Why it's amp output is lacking high end 
compared to it's line output is beyond me.  Doesn't make sense right?  
A guitar's output is thin and tinny.  An amp pre puts in that needed 
bass and midrange that a guitar's output lacks.  Why would you do that 
if you thought the signal was going into an amp?  That's like filtering 
something and then filtering it again.

I'll try to get to recording it tonight and I'll post the results.
