RE: Fighting the temptation to noodle

How about adding the occasional extra bit into the loop Mark? 
I also find that setting the loop to less than 100% feedback produces more of an evolving soundscape.

From a live looping standpoint, this feels like cheating. Everything turns into one long ambient guitar solo over a static loop which isn't really what I was after. Yes, I could go play with half speed and reverse and sometimes I do, but I still end up back at the soloing over a static loop point fairly quickly. Any advice? Does feedback work well enough on the M13 to make it viable for loop evolution? (I'm finding my existing expression pedals don't seem to give all that precise control with Line 6 equipment.) Or is it time to wire the EDP back into the set up?
