Repeater question, was RE: Digitech JamMan???

No, and Yes,
Can you create a loop of a given length, then create one of another length,
and then one of another length, etc??....no, but what you can do is create 
loop, use the multiply function to double the original loops length, create
another loop (track) over the longer loop length (say that ten times
quickly), then use the multiply function again to increase the overall loop
length, and record another track, repeating the process. This does allow 
user to have loops of increasingly longer length, but as multiples of the
original loop length. Does that make sense? let me put it another way, You
can't  have a one bar phrase followed by an eight bar phrase, followed by a
five bar phrase, followed by a 3 bar phrase, but you can create a loop,
create another loop twice as long, another loop twice again as long, etc,
all using the multiply function.... I will probably pony up for another
Repeater, and I would highly recommend it to even the most diehard echoplex
dudes, particularly if they do indeed address some of the units issues.

So ... quick dumb question ... will the Repeater allow you to have multiple
loops of varying lengths playing simultaneously?
