Chuck: canna' help you with the Eplex ?, but this weekend I'm definitely
going to try this with my Jammie :)  AFTER I mow the lawn this fine day (a
loop in itself)

I've done a similar things running loops thru a flanger, but then you get
that flange-colored tone . . . 

loops that flux by themselves are my favorite cuz' they are an artificial
form of life--a nice, spiralling soundtrack to perform your higher 
to . . .
