Just great to see another mailing list quietly doing the impossible. Community building, idea sharing and tech support all wonderfully tangled up. Anyway, I have exactly the loop fade problems described in the list with the EDP (purchased new a few months ago in Australia, V5, Serial # EDP 2513). Below are my experiences with it, in the hope that it will help find a solution. I rarely turn the EDP off, except to clear this problem, so I'm not sure about the warming up part. My experience has been that powering the EDP off and back on sometimes clears the problem, but sometimes only partly clears it, or has no effect. Better result if I do a power on with the params button on, but sometimes that doesn't change the low output level either. If I wait a minute with it powered down before powering up (with params pressed) it seems to clear completely every time (hmm, so heat has to be part of the equation somewhere?). Other observations: The fading happens to a lot of my loops, not just occaisonaly Increase in hissing noise as loop content fades Fade is noticeable after a short time, and usually barely audible the next day (sometimes it lasts longer) The feedback light doesn't fade, just the music output level to the amp. I have filled memory to the max. Had some inconsistent distortion problems at first, but apparently cleared with re-seating the memory chips. I play fairly open single note guitar lines to build loops, with gaps, soft starts, long held notes fading away, etc. Is it my imagination or do the volume levels change a bit randomly on each loop cycle? I did see a list item on this in the archive suggesting that overdriving the input levels can trigger the problem. This is quite plausible in my case. I'm using an electric guitar as the main input, and I like to work with a large dynamic range. (There is a bit of an issue with low levels and rough cutting-in on swells, but perhaps one thing at a time.) Hope this helps find a solution. Reading the Loopers EDP FAQ, it feels like this problem (and perhaps the rough cut-in on swells) is a bit of a blast from the past. Ray.
