There are actually very few people who use the feedback
control when playing rhythmic material.
Perhaps because it's all too easy for it to go
out of time and sound bad, especially as the loop length gets
Generally I only use feedback control in a couple of situations
1) overdubbing swells onto a rhythmic loop till it disappears
2) quickly dipping the feedback while adding a short overdub
3) of course, it's handy for fade outs too.
