I loop 6-string bass, a couple of ARP's, an Oberheim SEM, a yamaha VL-70
(triggered from a wind controller, I don't play it very well but it sure is
fun) and various other synths through a JamMan, a Vortex and an LXP-5.

Can you give me more info on the pitch-to-voltage converter you use? Is it
a commercial product or custom made. I'd love to have something like that
to trigger the SEM from my bass. I've tried a few pitch to MIDI converters
with not a l;ot of success.

You will love it. It's one of those boxes that gets deeper every time I try
to figure it out. It produces sounds that I've never heard from any other
FX box in 20 years of messing with this stuff.
