In my opinion, anyone interested in Line 6 gear, and modeling gear in

yes the EchoPark spec's all look very interesting. "Sweep" and 
"Ducking" are parameters I'm very concerned with now when setting up a 
laptop looping meta-instrument. It's cool to see they also added 
"Reverse". If you buy one, Andreas, can you post a review?  ;-)

All the best
