Re: Pre and Post sampling a loop (read on)

The echoplex already uses basically this technique to make smooth loops. No
need for an upgrade! It also detects whether you are actually playing
anything at the point where you close the loop, so it knows whether to
overdub this quick x-fade into the beginning of the loop or not.
