Re: EchoPlex

I just got a new Capybara 320 last night. (That's the
new hardware for Kyma, www.symbolicsound.com)  I wrote a
stereo looper with both fowards and backwards output.
The speed of the backwards output can be adjusted
in real time.  It only takes up 1/3 of one of the new
DSP chips (each w/ 24MB of sample/delay memory).  On
top of that, the new 24-bit converters sound wonderful.
Given that a new base system has 3 of these chips 
available, it seems to me to be a better deal than
trying to find multiple echoplexes, or expensive
boxes like a TC2290 or Eventide.
