Re: How Many Delays, synced and unsynced

I'm currently splitting the stereo outputs from the "A machine" of an 
Eventide Orville into the inputs of a pair of brother-synced EDPs and into 
input one of a Rane SM-82 mixer. The outputs of the EDPs go into another 
channel of the Rane. There is an Electrix Repeater in the stereo effects 
send/return of the Rane. With a little planning, I can get three 
independent stereo loops going. I can pour the output of the Orville into 
either the EDPs or the Repeater, or I can pour the output of the EDPs into 
the Repeater.

This means that if I put all these things in series, I could have 87 
seconds from the Orville, 198 seconds from the EDPs, and 240 seconds from 
the Repeater. This works out to 8:45 all in glorious stereo. It's an 
embarrassing amount of gear to throw at making Righteous Racket, but it 
sure is fun.


I forgot to mention the 40 seconds that the Orville has in each of its A 
and B machines for general purpose delay, reverb, chorus, etc. use. Oh... 
my guitar amp has a spring reverb, too. :-)
