Don't worry, Italoop, you are wellcome

Although Redsound claims it also for studio, I would pretend Cycloops
exclusively made for discotheques. They should have called it the world 's 
first
direct-to-use fully automatic club sampler.
It is not exactly the same market like Repeater which seems to be more 
based for
studio and live musicians. It is true sometimes Cycloops is a bit long to 
"hear"
the beat, but when it hears it, you can trust it. This is what DJs want I 
think
: trusting the unit they accept to play with, or leave it.

Well, nobody has done what Redsound and I try to do now actually, even 
Gemini
didn't want to spend the money for such a concept. The most fun of it is 
neither
Redsound nor I are able to make it, since it stands for the strict 
combinasion
between the 2 technics, Redsound V2 BPM engine + DJRND2 looping 
technology. The
recipie is a miracle, but it works !!!

Yeah, would people spend 400US$ for 6 loops ? Well, wait and see once the
product is released, but I keep on betting. Quality sometimes worths, I 
know
Redsound is the leader in terms of BPM technology, this will make the
difference, ... very stable ... the loops never move and follow the source 
...
like a turntable once correctly pitched ... believe me I still believe 
Gemini
where wrong, and Artie Cabasso let me understand it in 1998 the day we met 
the
last time, even before DJRND2 was born ... Yes I am the naughty little 
duck ...
to be continued

And also a great honor to be compared with the CMX5000 ... well the 
concept is
starting
