That was very much the intention of the LOOP delay:
The more you give away (by switching it of), the more you receive next time

Put them on tape and listen to them. You learn without noticing.

I use DECK by MakroMedia (OSC, really). There are a lot of bugs in it, but
you can do nice cross fades and its very cheap compared to its complexity.
