yes, that is right. (and we did spend a lot of time thinking about
this.) The default parameter settings are what we feel is a good place to
start. So a beginning user can power up and get right in and do the basic
looping functions without having to care what the parameters are all about.
Then, after you feel you understand the basics of looping with the
Echoplex, you can explore some of the parameters and learn what they do.
Depending on what you wish to do with looping, how you play, your style of
music, your setup, or whatever, you may find that some different parameter
settings are really useful to you. You might want to change to those
permanently instead of the defaults. Or perhaps you just want to switch
that parameter sometimes, depending on the needs of a particular piece of
LoopIV now has parameter presets, which are really helpful as a way to
manage different echoplex configurations. No more reaching over, hit the
parameter button a few times, find the right parameter button, hit it some
more to edit - all while still trying to play. Now you can set up your
favorite configs in advance and change them on the fly with a program
change message from any midi controller. much easier!
