Re: looping up the wall...

Well, it would stand to reason that if you're in overdub with a low 
feedback, you'll never realize it's drifting because the original is 
gone replaced by the new.  If you play the new in sync, it will 
effectively be in sync.  No?

This is the way Matthias explained it to me.  This is why I've always 
liked the Repeater.  Stays in sync and gets your whites whiter.
