Re: Availability of Echoplex, will it ever come?

i'm new to the list.  i ended up selling my repeater..now i want it 
back!  i use ableton live 3.o and NI reaktor, but i am unable to find 
software that enable sound-on-sound overdubbing/looping.
i know that alto sound in middletown NY USA has echoplex in stock 
(well, a while ago) but it's worth a shot.  sorry, i dont have their 
telephone number.
per, i have seen your posts on various lists and boards and have 
visited your website.  some day i hope to jam with you.  =) i do 
abstract electronic music.   www.astromass.com

thanks all,
