RE: Echoplex problems
This is probably not a serious problem and is likely caused by the
tolerance on the 2 16MHz crystals drifting. They will need to be
replaced. I'm late for a meeting now, so gotta go, but I'll send more

Subject: Echoplex problems
Ive finally had some time to sit and play with my EDP,and im having a
problems I thought one of you more learned users might have come across
could perhaps advise me on what to do.
the problems i had so far are (in order) are:
1. Powered on and the Loop3 text just kept scrolling past over and
this time there was no sound coming from my guitar
2.recorded a loop with all my levels ballanced and no peaking of either
input signal or the feedback, the loop played back AWFULLY distorted,
though the guitar signal that was going throught the echoplex while it
in play mode was clean and fine.
3.Powered up and for some reason got a number 9 that wouldnt shift on

like what you get when you touch a metal pedal when holding you guitar,
machine recorded the pop played it round a few times then just died.
5.another distorted freak out as described in 2.

hope some of you will gimme the light at the end of the tunnel that i
