Re: Retraction and apology to LD and Vox (Re: Vox Tonelab for looping)

That sounds very cool.  Do you know, can any of the the tonelabs delays 
self-oscillate a la the old bucket-brigade delays?  That is one of the 
coolest effects and no one seems to make delays that can do it.  I need 
a delay that has tap tempo self-oscillation and looping.  I think 
Maneco who make the Maneco loopers is building a device that can do 
this.  No one mention the line 6 as I am not going to pay that kind of 
money for something that is going to break and the replacement part 
cost almost as much as a new unit.  My friend had one and when it broke 
that's what line 6 told him to do, buy a new chip or processor which 
was probably 75% of the cost of a new unit.  When my old memory man 
broke I sent it to EH and for 16 bucks they fixed it.
