RE: Repeater OS2
Ok I gotta chime in, I spent the last few months since I couldn't find the
Electrix Booth at NAMM quietly buying up all of the Repeaters on E-Bay as
the prices dropped, Now I will be able to make millions when the new
Repeaters fail to materialize. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha (demonic blood curdling
BUT SERIOUSLY FOLKS.
I think that what Jeff said is right on the money. It is a really volatile
market right now, and niche products in general are having a tough go.
Perhaps it is time for everyone serious about a repeater to e-mail Electrix
again, though I'm not sure that will help. I am suprised though, that they
decided to come back with most of their models, instead of just
concentrating on the Repeater, like the company that makes the Boomerang.
As much as I'm convinced that the days of hardware high end loopers are
numbered, I'm just hoping that there will always be some demand. I also
heart in the fact that, if all I had to loop with was a Line 6 DL4, or two,
I'd still be a happy loopoing fool.

products see the same types of issues. I've been

was all, "blah blah blah, our cool new synth is coming
in a few weeks!" and after they missed that ship date
they were more or less silent for a year. Supposed to
ship next month on the 3rd, but they lost my business.
Instead of an upgrade I ended up getting a
