You could use the [limiter~] from Zexy, I think also Unauthorized has 
one, and set the limit low enough to prevent your peaks from getting too 

I use a lot of comb filters, where the same input is recycled at a very 
fast rate [which of course gives the characteristic frequency response 
of the comb filter], but my inputs tend to be pretty low anyway. But I 
have had situations where the whole thing "blows up" because of too high 
an input level combined with too short a delay, so I know what you mean. 
So pix is right...catch the level before it gets to the loop.
