Pretty much the way I do the two Zoom 2100s, in conjunction with the 7.6
Time Machine, which accumulates the outputs of the Zooms and other items 
the mixer aux send.  I do wish the Rapco AB-100 A/B footswitch didn't have
the awful 'standard heavy clicking' switches on it.  It's uncomfortable to
do without shoes on, and they're bloody loud.

Suggestions for the switches themselves perhaps would be in order.  Uh,
those that are in the UK that is, huh?  God, here we go. :P
