Re: Stereo Echoplex Problems


I've asked you a couple of times to accurately describe your set up and the
manner in which you use the stereo echoplexes. So far I haven't ever
received that info. Rather than continuing to throw a fit in public and
unnecessarily worrying people, would you mind documenting exactly what all
of the parameter settings are on both units, the manner in which they are
connected, and the exact sequence of events which causes the audio 

The work arounds that I have suggested to you in the past should have 
this problem. Since they apparently didn't, I'm not sure what is going
wrong. I really need more complete information in order to help you and 
sure that any problems with the software have been fixed. Believe me, I
would much prefer that you were a satisfied user!

Please send that info to me at home rather than here at work:


As for the rest of you, there are many stereo users who do not experience
the problems Jim has described, including me. I believe that Jim is
experiencing something wrong, and we will certainly make sure we sort it 
so that others do not have the same unfortunate experience.
