JamMan memory problems

Hi, I'm turning to the list to help solve a problem I'm having with the

A while ago, I bought a set of ZIP IC's from VisionSoft, recommended by
somebody on the list as a source for chips. I didn't get around to
installing the chips until about 2 weeks ago, and I didn't really check the
unit out after installing the chips. A few days later, when I finally had a
chance to thoroughly test the unit out, I noticed that the output was
really distorted, in fact it sounds to me like it's been downsampled to 8
bits. So today I finally swapped the old chips back in, and it sounds fine

So I'm wondering whether I got a set of defective chips or if I just got
the wrong kind of chips. When I called VisionSoft, I read off a couple of
the part numbers from the JamManual, and the guy at VS asked me what kind
of Amiga I was using. I told him it was for a digital delay, and he checked
the numbers, and said he had the right kind of chips, I ordered 4 (about
$47 including shipping). Today, I noticed that the old 8 second chips have
a missing pin on one side in the middle, while the 32 second chips have all
the pins. Anyway, I'm going to call VisionSoft again on monday, but I'm
wondering if someone could give me info on this beforehand. Thanks in
