Re: How hardy is your EDP?

I seem to remember someone reporting a process ("bug") that would cause 
the "bits of everything you've looped since power up or reset" to 
appear, but I'm not having any luck finding in the archives.  I think 
it had to do with a lot of multiply and undo commands, but Kim will 
probably chime in here with the skinny.  The white noise thing sounds 
like a problem though.  Shane should be able to help you out with that.

Over the years I've had two EDP's that were DOA which were immediately 
replaced (this was quite some time ago) and one which was sort of wonky 
either right out of the box or soon thereafter (again, many years ago). 
  Other than that, I haven't had any trouble with multiple units from (I 
think) all eras of production.  Some are louder than others, some are 
hissier, but that's about it.

Although it might not be in my best interest to do this, especially if I
ever want to sell off an EDP, but I need to report that I've had my
first EDP problem, and it's bumming me out big time.  I own 2 EDPs, and
one of them is occasionally going nuts.  After a few loop creations and
resets, I'll get pieces of old loops magically appearing in my current
loop, the feedback light goes red, and then I even get some exploding
digital white noise splattered in.  This just happens, with no
particular event or series of events that cause it.

I've tried cleaning and reseating ALL of the chips that are removable,
new memory, and putting the EDP in a different place in my signal and
MIDI chain.  Nothing is working... it still happens almost every time I
play (and will certainly happen anytime I play more than 30-40 minutes).

I'm about to contact Shane Radke and send it to the hospital.  I'm
bummed :( :(

Anyone else ever see this kind of behavior with their EDP?
