Re: "hold note" function

There would be a click using Mark's method.

What you would have to do, is either volume swell the note while 
(with a volume pedal) before the echoplex (which is what I do), I use a
mixer to route my signal so that this doesn't affect my actual playing but
only the signal that goes to the echoplex.  Then, just use the volume pedal
to cut the volume and stop overdubbing.

The easier way, is to record silence with feedback at zero, overdub your
note, and then gradually increase feedback and stop overdubbing, then stop
the note.  To avoid the slight click, you would need to take the volume off
with the guitar pot before stopping the note and stopping overdubbing.
