Anybody have any answers...

I posted this a while ago, and nobody has imparted any sage advice in my
general direction.

Just in case this didn't get sent, here it is again...

"For the first time last night, I ran my JamMan through the effects loop
of my amp rather than feeding it from the pre-amp out and plugging the
output of the JamMan into another amp or PA and strange things

I would hit an exceptionally loud note (in echo mode) which would cause
the input light to flicker red.  Instead of getting the usual obnoxious
digital clip, the unit started this weird subatomic clicking sound.  I
was however dismayed to find that while the clicking could be sped up
with the triplet/quarter note echo setting, I could not record onto it,
or get my straight signal through the JM (because I am not one to waste
an obnoxious sound when I find one).  Anyone have this happen to them?"

At first I thought this might be RF (or something) interference from the
poorly shielded cables I was using (hey, they were handy) so I switched
them and I still got the weird artifacts.

I don't know if I said this clearly enough, but I got this runnaway, and
then the whole unit, for all intents and purposes shut down (aside from
the triplet/quarter note thing).

Does anyone run a JamLady thru their effects loop on an amp, straight
up, no chaser?  Is their any good reason why no-one does?

I wonder if anyone here has tried to do that here since it seems most
use their loopers in conjunction with fifteen fx processors, 2 two
mackie 8bus consoles, a cuisinart...
