Max loop time on the echoplex is 200 seconds. The memory used in the
echoplex is so cheap now that the full expansion costs between $80 and
$100. The simms used are available just about everywhere.

The memory in the plex can be used for more than just really, really long
loops. (sort of boring to me, really). You can divide it into multiple
loops, and the more memory you have, the more undo's you have available.

The whole Echoplex manual is on the Looper's web site. Take a look at that,
and feel free to ask if you still have questions.....'
