RE: whiny looper

Memory expansion is a significantly more involved mod than the upgrade I   
am working on but it's still in the plan. The original Jamman hardware   
did include some special circuitry to simplify expansion to 120 seconds   
but it will require one additional IC in addition to the larger RAMs and   
a 1.5Amp wall wart (the one used for the LXP 5 will work). It will   
probably be handled seperately from the other mod. I'll keep the forum

I was wondering about that too. All the new features sound cool, but also
sound like they require a significant amount of memory. If you have four
tracks simultaneously on one loop, and they are all recorded at the same
sample rate used now, wouldn't that mean each can only be 8 seconds long   
a fully expanded jamman? And with a second loop (or "page" as you call   
they would be 4 seconds each, right? Seems like memory expansion would be
pretty critical! Maybe you should start making your own memory expansion
cards with bigger drams.
