Fripp soundscapes and gear stuff

     Just saw Robert Fripp doing his solo soundscapes these past two 
nights.  At the end of the
second night, he left his loopers (four TC2290's) running for about half 
an hour while people
slowly left the building.  As the loops went on, more and more clicking 
noises became apparent.  I
asked John Sinks (his tech) about it and he replied that this is a known 
bug that has never been
addressed.  The TC2290's are no longer being supported as the technology 
has become too ancient. 
According to John, Robert will be switching to EDP's sometime in the 
future.  Does this mean
replacing his four 2290's with four EDP's?  I didn't get that clarified 
though it sounded like it.
 Also, he'll be replacing his Eventides with the latest Eventide H8000.  
This will allow 8 channel
panning (plus a few other things...).

     Robert played to supportive audiences of about 35-40 people each 
night.  What a joy to see
him at ease and not hiding in a darkly lit corner of the stage or running 
away from hungry
autograph seekers.  He warmly welcomed people before the show started and 
was available for
conversation afterwards.  I've been following his work for a number of 
decades and this was by far
the most ideal performance situation I've yet to see him in.
