I don't own a Repeater (yet) but from studying the manual I think the 
Repeater will be an amazing instrument to use live. This is why I am 
one. The extra DSP features are useful if you need them, but you can 
to not use them if you want. I can even see using them live. But keep in 
mind, when I play live I am seated and composing sequenced tracks and 
on Logic, not standing playing a guitar. I can't assess the Repeater as a 
live instrument for guitar-only use.

Regardless, both instruments afford the musician a common set of tools 
albeit with a different user interface. Perhaps this will start a user 
interface war a-la mac os vs. windoze? I think time will tell. When all of 
us Repeater-craving users have one in our system and have used it 
extensively it should become clearer how the tool can best be used.

The issue of no wet/dry mix does concern me however. This seems to me like 
an over-sight on the design. Electrix? care to comment? what's the 
rationale behind this?
