Re: a bit OT: audio sustain?

right, the advantage of getting a looper with overdub and no delay/feedback
it would be that you could still singing over without adding new material to the
formerly clustered tones.

although you can achieve the above with a regular delay & a mixer/aux send.

also consider the stop function/button on most loopers,
so then you can quickly replace the cluster/chord.
it uses to be more tedious & risky to do this
with a delay with feedback at 100 %.

Yes I do this, have a programme on my Zoom A2.1u set up as 5seconds delay with 100% feedback, it works for drones and the layered chords that you describe, I tend to then feed this into my looper if it's for a looped piece. I guess that you don't need to dedicate a "looper" to it if this is all you want to do, a DDL with 100% feedback does the trick too.

If you use a looper and you sing each note for the duration of the loop it will sound like it is constantly sounding.  Then one by one you can add voices, "stacking" them over the original note.

Howdy y'all
Yet another lurker surfacing here...
I was wondering if any of you know of a kind of (loop based?) sustain for audio, either hardware or software.  I want to be able to use my voice to build tone clusters live, one note at a time.  I'm aware that TC-Helicon includes something called "harmony hold" in their VoiceWorksPlus rack but it seems to only sustain one note (or generated harmony) at a time while you sing or play over it.  Not quite what I'm after.  Any suggestions?
