Re: Stretchy loops

> From: Andre LaFosse <altruist@altruistmusic.com>
Great stuff, Andre, I love these techniques.
Another thing I just discovered yesterday is, you can set an EDP to delay
mode and get something you like happening, then, while it's playing, change
to loop mode -- and the loop you created in delay mode will continue
playing, only now you're in loop mode!  Very good for creating something 
then soloing over it.
