Re: Boomerang: sample time vs. sample rate

..............I'm interested in both control and a certain divine random 
quality.  So, I've just ordered a plex to talk with my Rang and jamfella.
This war has really whet my appetite to do a side-by-side...and I love 
making visa happy.  I just came onto the list and may have missed this 
particular facet, but...what's the plex's max loop time?  I find the 
jamaholic's 32 second limit much too, uh, limiting compared to the Rang.

......................................I was just talking to Mike Nelson 
of Boomerang and he told me, not secretly, that there are software (read: 
feature) updates due in the next few months and that current owners will 
be able to upgrade for a nominal charge.  Unfortunately, "undo" is still 
not in the works.  At the moment, that's one of the key features that 
lure me to the plex.  Question:  Can someone tell me a bit more about the 
interface controls with the plex, the switches or whatever?  If this info 
is already in the archive somewhere, just say so and I'll look there.  I 
didn't see such a real description at the Oberheim website.  

thanks...another kim.
