R: First Looper Reminiscence

My first one was an old (late 70s - first half of the 80s) Eko analog delay
(no tape), which had a maximum time of 800ms. Compared to my first delay
line (the delay in the old korg a5 pedalboard (370ms) it seemed to me to be
a wonderfully long time to mess with. Then I found a used korg a1 (after a
pair of years). Boom - 2.6 secs of hold delay, and I could even join it to
another pair of fx. My old band couldn't understand what I was playing and
what I wasn't. The first time I played with them and the drummer stopped to
break our nervous system to listen. Great...:-):-)
