Re: Buy one EDP, get the 2nd for half price!

Absurd because a hardware stereo looper will never be a viable product 
in our lifetimes, or absurd because Gibson has no plans to ever further 
develop the EDP (beyond making it CE compliant)?

The fact of the matter (for me) is this:  Every piece of gear I own is 
stereo except for my Ampeg tube amp.  I consider stereo processing and 
synths with sounds that have a stereo component to be standard in the 
year 2003.  I consider them to be a big part of my sound.

If my Repeater exploded today, I couldn't afford to get 2 EDPs to 
replace it.  I'd probably end up getting another Repeater used.  I know 
you (Kim) don't think that stereo is a big deal, but that's you.  Sure 
you're opinion is valid, but why dismiss your end user's opinions?  If 
the EDP was $300 or $400 dollars no one would be making this wish.  
That's all it is.  A wish.  I know this thread is a bit silly, but it's 
just a bunch of geeky loopers talking about what could have been/might 
be.  Maybe it will inspire another manufacturer to release a 
competitive product?  Highly doubtful, but you never know, especially 
with so many cool things happening in the software world.  If Mark of 
the Unicorn's Digital Performer's POLAR module had feedback control I 
wouldn't be writing this or even considering the EDP.  PHP software has 
already emulated the Lexicon delays of old, it's only a matter of time 
before someone does this to the EDP.  I for one will be sad when this 
day comes, but that is the nature of technology.
