Re: Playing in time with multiple non-synced loopers... (was: Re: footswitchable series/parallel signal routing schemes)

  aaah, forget about sublimating yer' ego!   it's all about ME!  me me  me
me me!!!   lol!   <smile>   Hey, speaking of playing with two loopers,
Jesse, are ya in the mood for another lil' loopy session?   We could

woods at some point soon for a photo shoot.  Have a great day.
