Re: echoplex digital pro no longer supported by gibson?!?!?

i just removed and put back the two chips based on the info found here:

http://www.aurisis.com/products/loopIV/LoopIVGuide.pdf  (page 11)

and... magic! my machine works again!  i have no idea how i did it,  
but it works. the chips didn't appear to be dislodged at all, though,  
once i opened the top and examined the circuit board...

my going to try the same thing on my second echoplex and hope for the  

now if i could only get my foot pedal board happening again...

thanks again bernhard!
