Weird. My secondary delay/looping rack is inoperative, sort of. It's almost like its on strike. My ART SGE (who most people hate but I like it's delay/modulation reverb FX) seems to still work as far as its analog effects, but all the delay/modulation/reverb effects produce this kind of sound if you put something through it: GGGhhHhhhSfhfffffxxxxxx.................... It's like an instant grungifier. All of the controls still seem to work, I tried resetting to factory defaults and that didn't work either. The sound is best described as a combination of: 60 hz hum, white noise, and and horribly distorted jiggling. If I use the analog effects (compressor, eq, etc) they seem to work. I guess I should write the ART people and ask them what's happening. I get catalogs in the mail from new and used gear companies all the time and still see the damn things for sale for about $250 or so, so I guess it's worth getting fixed. Plus, Trey Gunn has one and I can hear on his albums when he uses it. He uses it for the same things that I do, oddly enough. The digital chorus is especially nice. I still have my Vortex of course. Maybe I should go to a local gear emporium and look at the cast off guitars by frustrated teens who couldn't master the Eaug9 chord.
