yes. i'm a picky bastard with a studio full of stuff he has no clue how he
afforded. you should see the arguments i have with myself over what to do
my Leslie situation (only one organ but 3 Leslies, a 200 watt Hiwatt, and
gigs ... yet i made a rule not to sell organ stuff for a reason).
i've also got no sleep for the past 3 weeks and have been posting more
liberally than i would feel comfortable with online. it has something to
with getting a job after 6 months of relative unemployment. i use the
more when i _have_ a job. when i don't have a job i'm too busy getting
done i don't bother with updating my website or my livejournal or anything
as far as the repeater goes, i don't miss the jamman and i don't enjoy the
whole record-as-you-go looping idea. i'm old-school. i want to just dial
delay length and go. i never make a loop not knowing how long i need it:
everything's synced to MIDI clock. i make heavy use of sequencing for
parts and the loopers are only there to help me impersonate robert fripp.
sometimes i make klaus schulze-ish mellotron parts in the Repeater, but
not common right now. the pitch shift doesn't work well enough to follow a
chord progression (nor should it be expected to) and you can't really use
8mb of onboard memory anyway.
i do miss the EDP pair though. the quantise is the coolest thing about it.
reverse loop makes no sense without quantisation. i never use reverse on
repeater because it's not useful to me it it's incomplete stage. if the
repeater is resurrected by some company that _finishes_ it or otherwise
improves on the concept i'll reconsider.
