Re:will Vortex work straight into gtr amp?

I'm also considering succumbing to the obscure coolness of the Vortex, and 
was wondering if you could help out with a couple more quick questions 
before I lay down my cash.

First, I notice that on a few of the sample patches on your site you're 
using the expression pedal to do volume swells into the delays.  I plan on 
doing a good bit of such swells, but I'm concerned that -- since the 
has a pretty limited number of memory slots -- it might not be a good use 
of the available presets.  I'm trying to keep things as simple as 
possible.  However, should I just plan on buying yet another volume pedal 
to put inline before the Vortex, or can I really get away with 
consolidating that function into a single unit?

Second, just how viable is the Vortex for looping?  I thought I'd read 
a good deal had been done with it, but I just keep coming back to the 
that say there's a max time of only two seconds on the delay.  That sounds 
a bit constrictive.  Am I merely misreading something here?
