Just got a Memory Lane....really impressed with it. Excellent manual with it to, that is concise, direct, informative and generally very well written and thought out. IT does give good tips on this, and I am sure it is just something I have to play with til it is intuitive, but in SOME settings (and they can be quite different settings too, not just when delay is short and feedback is high, etc.) a slight change in volume or attack on the guitar can make it go into runaway oscillation, and when it goes it goes faster than on any other delay I ever had....and it is not a pleasing sound. I just wondered, any of you have "standard" ways to cut self oscillation when it starts up? I'm guessing immidiately turning the feedback knob down, or first the mix, then feedback? I know my question is vague, but mainly would love to hear from longtime users, (longtime being, long enogh to figure this pedal out any tips on settings, or surefire ways to prevent the oscillation...or any other tips really. This is a really incredible pedal, I don't see the "touchiness" as a problem, merely something I have to learn how to use...the sound is amazing though.
