Re: Is Electrix out of business?
The signs don't seem encouraging do they?
Electrix is really IVL, based in Victoria, BC. My brothers and a few
friends did some beta testing for them a few years back.
I was at their plant when they were just developing the Elextrix line, in
fact the working name at the time was 'groove station...or...somethin' or
other ...can't remember. I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement (hope
not breaking it now) and was only shown artist renderings of the housings.
The units themselves were still in R&D stage, so it was more talk than
listen to an actual effects unit. We had a demonstration of some circuit
boards, wires and alligator clips that created some some sort of
processing - I think it was the genesis of MoEFX. There was no mention of
anything resembling the Repeater at the time - spring1998.
Last I spoke with them was just before the Repeater came out. I was trying
to score one to use on my album, but they told me that The Edge was
for his and I'd have to wait....I'm still waiting! I had my suspicions
there was trouble when they deep-sixed the other units that proceeded the
Repeater. Well, ...they took me out for dinner and beers at least.
But..that's all I know (for what it's worth). I'll see what I can find
