RE: Peak at new Electrix Repeater MK2 and OS 2.0

Are you sure you've got your gain stages set up
correctly?  I've had great results with the Repeater
in a line level effects loop of a Soundcraft board.  I
can't say I've used the headphone output, but the line
level outs seem to be pretty good in the signal to
noise ratio dept.

I'm just tickled to see they've incorperated direct to
overdub and the ability to preset loop length like you
can with the Lexicon JamMan.  I guess I'll have to
upgrade as soon as it comes out in May/June of 2006.
