Re: Survey: Echoloop + LG Users: Instant Multiply?



Maybe you can use Insert in some way? I mean, if you insert the same
length as the loop it would double the loop length - and IF you manage
to copy the audio content in the process it would equal an Instant
Multipy (the "x2" version). Just a 2-pence hip shot...
