Re: Repeater frenzy

Indeed, Electrix's other products are pretty damn amazing. I had two 
factories and a mofx connected up with a jamman as my 'looping factory'. i 
sold the jamman to make financial room for the repeater and this is mostly 
why i am dismayed - because i sold my only looper only to dive into these 
product release delays.

if/when the repeater is integrated into my loop station, its going to be 
fantastic! i've been playing with various combination of filter factories 
and mofx's and i think the best combo is two FF and a mofx connected in 
series. wow - you can create some pretty serious rhythmic effects with 

we shall see.
