RE: Peak at new Electrix Repeater MK2 and OS 2.0

Cool News.
There are 3 things that have been said repeatedly (I know that's a cheesy
one...) on the electrix forums that are very important (on top of the sync
and memory improvement) :
- Fix the NOISE issue (especially for the jack output and from the 
output) as the repeater is currently too noisy to work in a studio
- Get rid of the clicking at the end of loops when recording on the compact
flash cards (annoying when playing ambient music)
- Design a software or application that allows you to create and/or get rid
of the silence before and after the exported/imported loops: this is

Also, it would be great to have the ability to monitor the metronome though
the headphones only (essential for Djing for instance).

Peak at new Repeater MK2 & OS upgrades

Greetings Loopers Delight members, 

We met Kim Flint in Anaheim at the NAMM show and he encouraged us 
to participate in the discussions here. That said, we'd thought we'd pass
along some preliminary info on the new Repeater MK2 feature set. Please 
in mind that this is a partial list (more info will be released over the
coming weeks/months). 

With the new Repeater MK2, some of the enhancements you can expect are:

o   Independent track looping control (can act like a
sampler as well).
o   Initial Record direct into overdub.
o   Loop length pre-programming.
o   Completely overhauled MIDI implementation that
will give you greater control over more features.
o   Persistent settings on power down/power up. The
unit now remembers your setup.
o   Sticky settings (stereo link, pan, pitch,
metronome) optionally imported to new loops on creation.
o   Utilities menu for controlling system operation
from the front panel, including MIDI channel.

Issues fixed from System 1.10

o   Vastly improved MIDI clock quality.
o   Positive indication of muted channels.

As mentioned above, there are additional features not listed that will be
part of the new Repeater MK2 and OS 2.0. We have compiled the list of mods
from numerous user requests. Please keep in mind that our plans for the new
product and OS are baked and any other suggestions will have to wait for 
next OS.

Many existing Repeater users want to know if they will be able to upgrade 
the new OS. While it is our goal to offer an upgrade path (for a small 
there may be some hardware changes required as it is likely that Repeater
MK2 will have significantly larger on-board memory. We will keep you posted
on this as information is available. 

Second question on everyone's mind is "when and where can I get one"? We
expect them to be available in May/June at select retailers. However, we
caution that there will be limited availability and if you want one, you
should visit your local retailer sooner than later and place a special 
to secure your position. 

Lastly, people are asking "how much?. US Retail price is $749.

Hope this answers some open questions and we'll keep you posted on new
developments as info becomes available. If you're interested in staying in
the loop (no pun intended) for additional Electrix info, we'd encourage you
to join our email list located on our home page @ www.electrixpro.com.
