back on the list; RC-50 still glitches (but less); weekly show (seeking musicians)

I'm sure you didn't miss me :-D but I'm back.  For some reason I got
unsubscribed in late November -- I realized it sometime later but
didn't get the time to resub till now.

I bought an RC-50 when it came out, but I was very disappointed, with
two issues:

 - the glitch that occurred when you went from "record" to play.
 - the fact that my left output was 12dB less than my right one.

It was confirmed to me that the first one was common to all units;  I
didn't find anyone with the second problem and assumed I had a bum
unit (but I unfortunately didn't detect it till it was too late).

So I shelved the unit.  This weekend, I brought it out, upgraded the
software, and gave it a whirl.

I knew that the upgrade sort of fixed the glitch, and that's sort of
right.  What really cheered me up was that the second problem also
cleared itself up!  It must somehow be a software glitch - which
actually makes sense now I think about it, the whole thing is
"fly-by-wire" (all levels are digitally controlled).


However, there's still a glitch-let when I go right from record to
play.  It's small, I've decided it's usable to replace my headrush
(which only does one loop but NEVER glitches), but it's noticeable.

Any hints on how to avoid it?  It only occurs on the first go around...

ALSO:  I'm still doing my Monday nights in the East Village.
http://swirly.com has a little information but I have a lot more music
to upload there.

We're definitely looking to book interesting acts!  There's no $$ now
but there's a good PA, I record everything digitally (though there's
been some glitches with the piece-of-&*#$ MicroTrack II I managed to
get almost everything) and dancers and funny lights and things - and
more to come.

Let me know, off-list, if you wanna do a set.
