The loop only affects the signal fed back into your instrument, so you can put in filters (Maniac Music mentions that a wah pedal works well) or delays in order to better control/manipulate the resonant frequency of the feedback. Actually a rather nice little bit of kit. I've got one I use on my Chapman Stick (some weird caveats there) and really like it. --m. -- _______ "Behind every fear lies a wish, don't you think...?"
