RE: EDP Hiss

Yeah, I'd like to know the answer to this too...is the problem
addressable by hardware or embedded software mods?    Again, it baffles
me that I've spent close to a thousand dollars a piece on two "mono"
looping units that produces more hiss than my some of my 15 year old
effect processors.
