Interestingly, the Boomerang III has feedback control but it's on a knob. 
The pedal jack is for loop volume. I believe that's getting revised in the 
latest release to support pedal control over feedback.

My use of feedback tends to be in one of three modes:

* 0%: I want a single repeat of the loop. It's basically a long delay. 
This is mostly useful when working with parallel loops.

* 100%: I'm trying to build up a seamless overdub.

* Some value in between for evolving the loop. The point here being that I 
don't necessarily vary this a lot while playing. I just need an "evolve"
