It ships with 4 256KB simms, which gives you 12.5 seconds. It has four simm
slots that take 30 pin simms, in pairs. You get about 12.5 seconds per MB
you put in, so maxing out with 4 4MB simms at 200 seconds. Since memory is
so cheap now, you can upgrade to the full 200 seconds for about $120-$140.

I'd highly recommend the memory increase. A lot of echoplex functions
become much more useful with greater memory. Undo of overdubs, multiple
loops, multiply, etc.  It really gives you much broader looping
possibilities, far more than just 200 second loops.
