Thank you SOOO much for posting this. EH is being (as always) very secretive about this upgrade (no info on web site, no info sent out to retailers, and I got a cryptic email that didn't really answer my questions.) Apparently all "new" units are shipping with this chip but I didn't get any info on how you can tell if the unit has it done already or not. If you (or anyone ) get's this done please post to the list and let us know how it works. From what I've been able to piece together in the new mode there is no count in and you can start/stop the loop (and presumabaly internal clock) on the fly by stepping on the record switch (this is how the orignal worked). Apparently the unit can be set back to the count-in mode by the user with some special button presses. What I'd like to know is if the unit still spits out midi sync in time if you start and stop the loop manually and if you can reset it to internal clock but NOT have the count in. I AM thrilled to see EH came to their senses and made this option as the previous system of having ot play to the pedal's internal clock was very counter-intuitive to improvising and made NO sense given how the original (and virtually ever other looper since) works. If this will allow the user to stomp in the loop points and then spit out midi sync that would make it about 300% more useful and I'd probably make it my main looper for live use!
