Re: SV: How emptying the Repeater?

Uh, so wait... is what you are telling me, you CAN cue up a loop and have 
it go
into RECORD?  I tried Dave Torn's suggestions (via the front panel) and it 
not function as he described.  Is this something that is accessable via 
only?  I can cue loops to play, and then put them into record, but I was 
I could just enter the new loop recording.  Am I missing something?
