 Using a pedal with a looper just takes some practice, I think. You have to
 learn to tap in time with loop you want to create. When I've demo'ed the
 plex to people and let them try it, I've often been surprised at how many
 don't realize that the taps to start and stop the loop are musical events,
 and must be in time. A lot of people tap the record and start the loop, 
 then start playing some time after. Or they will stop playing the phrase
 they want to loop, and then tap the record switch to end the loop after a
 leisurely pause. >>
thanks for remembering me!
 what i'm talking about is the sensitivity of the pedal itself-one tap acts
as 2 and i get a loop .1 seconds long! i'd be able to deal with the timing 
the button weren't so sensitive. any tips would be great.
