thats true, we need Andy's spirit and advice, I should mention him

more than advice, he designed the main board and some essential software

I hoped that my definition was clear enough: it needs to start as a EDP
replacement so the first version will be as similar as possible. the
Echoloop code, basically
then we evolve together from there.

that was a sad HW limitation. Keith and me talked about multiple loops but
we did not want to switch processor

hm... that does not sound quite right to me, but I better do not spend
time with this now
I am pretty sure that I will not follow the "multiple EDP" way but allow
the "Next" to play simultaneous
does that appeal?
