Hi Ian, welcome to Looper's Anonymous!

I'd like to hear more about what you are doing here and how you do it. I've
been experimenting in a rather limited fashion with putting sequence
pattern stuff into synced loops and delays and mucking about with
crossfading and feedback and such. Things like reversing the loop or
looping only piece of the sequence and crossfading back and forth with the
original got me some interesting results. Certainly made the lame drum
machine patterns a lot more interesting! I'd like to do more of this, what
are some techniques you use?
