do you mind if i ask how? like ... how? a TC2290 with the memory 
upgrade is rarer than a Buchla 200 i'm sure. i never bought them 
because the EDP being 700 dollars is too expensive, and i don't need to 
_completely_ duplicate Bob's rack ( i already have an Eventide H3000SE, 
and want a second one).

i have no idea how the TC stereo effects work when in master/slave 
mode. however, the way that Bob claims he uses 64 seconds of delay is 
by running the 2290s at half-speed sometimes.

i'll bet most of the time they're at a full 1mhz sampling rate, though.

the reason he uses 4 of them is to have 2 independent stereo loops. he 
never used them in serial. however, if John Sinks would like to take 
issue with  that statement, i will retract it. :)
