Fw: boomerang idea

When my main looper was a Digitech RDS-3600, I used a similar technique.
However, instead of a "stack" button, the RDS had a "hold" button.  It was
very handy to be able to freeze a loop, thaw and change it, and then
re-freeze it.

You can do the same thing in the "echo" mode on the JamMan by turning the
feedback setting from 16 (hold) to 15 or lower (fade).

Evolving loops are much more interesting than static loops.
