Re: Taking the plunge

With a "Long loop" you say? I di this exact thing with a relatively short one, leave overdub on, no feedback and just hitting reverse when the moment seems right, sometimes like DJ scratching... Cant imaging what its like with a long loop.. damn, have to go plug the rack in again... been lying around since my last gig...

There's another trick I loved with my hardware EDP and that Mobius
can't do: with "feedback = 0" creating a long empty loop, put it into
Overdub mode, play something, hit Reverse, keep on overdubbing on what
you just played (now played back reversed), when back at the beginning
of the now reversed-playback chunk you hit Overdub again and begin
play to your now reversed second layer. Since feedback is zero you'll
never get more than two layers sounding and you can keep on doing this
questions and answers ping-pong game for ever.

This doesn't work with Mobius. It seems that Mobius needs to play a
full loop round in order to keep a chunk of Overdub audio on a layer?
With the EDP you could go "Reverse<-->Reverse" in Overdub mode for
ages and stack up layers for just a very short part of the loop.
