hmmm, that is weird. It seems like eventide folks were not clear about this if you look up in this thread. If I may ask, why doesn't it work as anyone would expect it to? You turn down feedback to zero, you should get zero repeats, right? Is the alternative design you have developed in response to some sort of limitation? If not, I really would suggest you make this a logical, workable, and predictable setting or its is pretty much useless. If you can't fix it, then perhaps you should not include the reverse setting at all.
So far we have heard that the looper doesn't work like a dedicated looper and the reverse setting doesn't work as a normal reverse delay. That strikes me as not great.
