Re: What will become of the Repeater pitch stretching techology, I wonder

I completely agree Rick, the sound of the Repeater pitching is something I just love from what machine, and is the ONE reason I dont sell mine. Incidentally how are you specifically doing your "chromatic" pitching. I have a small 10 note keyboard programmed into the FCB 1010, Plus I also rig it up to a 16 note analog sequencer. However I always get a bit of a lag, or portamento between notes, have you got it to work seamlessly with no slides between pitch changes?? Does the new software help? I still haven't been able to afford it!

Its a shame that Electrix have gone again, but maybe it takes something like this to get a great user following to step up and help with continued development - Who owns the SDK now actually?

There is not a single other instrument out there that allows a person like
to recontextualize a found sound object as a chromatic instrument.

I pray to god that my Repeater hangs on for a long time.  I love that one
function of this
looper,  may it rest in peace.

Also,  I wonder what happened to all the other Electrix products.
Is the whole company dead in the water or just the Repeater?

The tempo based, rhythmic possibilities of the Mo-FX and the Filter Factory
are incredible.

Pitch stretching algorithms in the Looperlative?    A person can dream,
can't they?
