Wow! What a deluge of e-mails over the past few days! It has taken me hours to wade thru it all! OK....the tour thing: Andre seems to have a good handle on what's going on. I think we need to re-size out thinking and scale down to something more manageable, if only for "this go round". I would be over-joyed to play again with anyone from Loopstock...and esp. to hook up with Matthias, and Andre (whose duet CD is all that has been claimed...stunningly beautiful! I really cannot stop listening to it...except maybe to listen to a little bit of Ted's CD...then back to Andre's..then back to Ted's...hmmm maybe I should just make a loop of the both them?) Nonetheless....all the Loopstock/Cali Tour posts, and then crops up the solo bass loopers thread! WOW...and hey my name is in there! shucks and thanks...also glad you Loopstockers are enjoying my CD! I have spent the better part of the past 24 hours getting inside this JamBoy upgrade. Yes there are some cool features, but I am unsure how how "stable" it may be. Some of the MIDI functions (like track fade, and reverse fade) seem to not work all the time...which is bothersome to say the least :-( and the unit seems (I must stress the "seems", it's been a long 24 hours!) to be noisier. The input and output controls have definitely changed, and the loop playback is now somewhat distanced (meaning the difference bewteen my real-time sound and the loop sound is NOTICEABLE!) Maybe I'll just put the old JamMan chip back in....and get another looper....edp or repeater...edp or repeater...edp or repeater.... _________________________________________________________________ Get your FREE download of MSN Explorer at http://explorer.msn.com/intl.asp.
