Re: stereo delay

usually people do this by going directly into overdub from record, and 
fading out their sound. It gives much smoother drones. (just like with 
using a delay, actually, since the delay input stays open, except you can 
define the loop length on the fly with a looper.)  Repeater unfortunately 
doesn't allow you to do this. You have to use work-arounds like recording 
blank loop first, then starting your loop by overdubbing onto that. On 
other loopers you can go directly into Overdub from record.

You might look for one of the Korg DL8000R stereo delays, that was a 
delay with 5 seconds per side, or 10 seconds mono. Out of production now, 
so maybe they are cheap used. Some reviews on the Looper's Delight page 
for it:
