RE: delay question / Vortex?

with the talk of the Vortex and Headrush, I am surprised that no one has
mentioned the Boss DD-5 Digital Delay. This cheap puppy I would think is
competetive with some of the lower-end loopers (It has a 2 second max 
and hold).

I was thinking of picking one up on ebay for microlooping and for long 
times. Anyone had any experience with this?

In deja vu B (the looper preset) you can turn down
MOD FX LVL and the original sound will disappear.

don't know about the automatic fading thing, 
no Vortex patches have this.
Could be something to do with the 
fact you,re feeding back into th Vortex

print out that manual at once, or at least the pages with
the FX diagrams.

and write down any good patches you find! 
(or you'll regret it)
...you can even share patches on my "database"

search LD archives for the famed
Dual Looper patch 
and there's even a delay with pitch mod

most of this stuff was 1998-1999
