Re: RE: Echo Pro - technical ping-pong

 ok... to clarify this, yes - i'm not using the jacks for signal in or 
out, i'm using the xlrs. the jacks are being used 
as the feedback loop. repeats is set to zero (otherwise it doesn't work), 
the mix is set to loop.

i got here because i realised that this is a "true stereo" processor - the 
left and right are, essentially, 
independent delays even when using as a mono effect. rather stupid, 
really. unless you can get it to go ping and 

the feedback is NOT as stable as using the repeats control. an, perhaps, 
the tone is different.

if it really can't be done "properly" inside the machine, i would think 
about adding my own repeats control, 
taking the signal through a gentle op-amp stage to raise the level and 
improve the s/n ratio.

>however, by patching (using the jack sockets) the left o/p into the
right i/p and the right o/p into the left 
i/p... and then feeding the unit from an xlr i/p I can get a ping-pong
delay from ALL of the delay models; 
repeats then being controlled with the output level control. (i was
sooooo pleased with this:-) )

ok...this setup sounds wild, and I'm willing to give it a whirl for
shits and giggles.

Let me get this straight.  XLR input to Echo Pro.
Left o/p to right i/p (1/4" jacks).  Right o/p into left i/p.

How is the audio coming out?  Via the XLR output?

If the repeats are controlled with the output level control, what do you
have the 'repeats' and 'mix' knob doing?  Do they come into play at all?

How is the 'mix' setting programmed?  Does it come into play?  Is it set
to global, program, or loop?

Thanks in advance,
