Re: Repeater-- Speculation and disinformation
Well we sure don't want to go back to the days of the JamMan versus
Echoplex flame wars. I was lurking back then, too. (Actually, I've
been lurking for, what, a decade, on and off? Someone should ask
about LiSa, just for old time's sake.)
Hey, since I'm here, I'm awaiting a Receptor. I'm eager to see if
Mobius will run on it. Loopy Llama does, anyway, along with a lot of
pretty cool delays. I'll post if it does (or not) when I can test it
(once I get it).
