You might end up preferring the Looper’s reverse delays over the standard Reverse & Crystal algorithms. It’s easy to get a long, smooth, backwards echo that builds up gradually, with a sudden crescendo to silence. The one-shot sample will remain available to a left footswitch tap, until it’s overwritten.
Try hitting the left footswitch [REC], and simultaneously strumming a thick chord. Hold that chord, and let it decay naturally. After 8 Beats, [REC] will stop. The chord will be stored as a ‘one-shot’ sample. Hitting the left footswitch a second time will play back the sample, in reverse [REC-SPEED -2X PLAYSPEED -200].
There’s a strangely logical behavior to the MIX control here:
Expression Pedal Heel: MIX 50
Expression Pedal Toe: MIX 100
At Heel, it’s equal parts of input playing and one-shot playback. Push the expression pedal to Toe for the processed sample only. But … the live input will stay muted for only as long as the sample is playing back. Once it stops, the live input becomes audible again; even with MIX set at 100% wet.
