methinks that yer guess is off-the-mark.

the potential depth of features was not covered, in those demos: 'tis most
probable that you only heard the basics employed.

i know..... or, at least i *think* i do. they want the unit to be as fully
functional ---as regards the release spec. in the 'manual'--- as possible.
it's really close: painfully close, for themall.
>Maybe they're still trying to get that power supply right.
i don't think so.

quiet, because they probably couldn't continue to keep up with the myriad
'probing queries', esp. re: schedule.
they sure appear to be trying **really, really hard** to get this first
maybe they should never have shown the box that early on.....
don't most folks here have at least one looper, awready?
w/music technology, i've -personally- found it to be a grievous
(psychological) error to base the direction/quantity of present & future
output upon products that are still TBR.
(like: 'i'm not gonna write a blahblahblah-kinda piece, until Apple puts
a triple-1.27 gHz machine', etc etc.....)
i've found that my 'consumer-in-abeyance' attitude -when it becomes
usually delays insight/exploration of *whatever* tools i have at hand.....
that, of course, doesn't mean i stop looking *forward* to/saving dosh for
those products --- i just don't wanna let my desire to move forward become
'blocked' by what is ---functionally--- my deep consumerism, oft run
(thisall from a guy who just waited a few months for a really crazy new
just some thawts.
looking forward to a fully-functional repeater's imminent arrival!
