> Can someone tell me the basic differences between the two? Sure: Repeater: Acid (the software) in a hardware setup. Brand new, still working out some issues and improvements. Promising addition for loopers. EDP: Ultimate delay unit on steroids. Battle tested and proven successful history. Anything beyond that requires numerous paragraphs, user testing for your own specific uses as they're different beasts, or perhaps a lengthy read through the detailed archives of this DL .... Also, trying to answer much beyond that really would be like discussing politics or religion. Everybody has their own definition of a given feature and its subjective superiority. I own 'em both and can recommend 'em both. > and the [EDP] footpedal self-destructing. What? I had no idea this was an issue. I've never had problems. Plus, the foot-pedal was designed to be easily replaceable and customizable with minimal soldering experience. Then again, you don't have to have the foot-pedal companion -- you could always use a number of 3rd party midi pedals, which is the same thing you'll have to do with the Repeater. Good luck.
