never heard that fripp used the 16secddl. i know he sued EH for using his name in the ad.i just got the new dvd of NelsCline http://mx.smartleydunn.com/12all/lt.php?c=111&m=273&nl=1&s=cf3fc737f08f3760bef11ac88da1a7a1&lid=861&l=-http--wilcoworld.net/news/
and the box is all over the place in his solo playing. it is such an integral part of his rig-its sometimes hard to tell when he has it on-but i do think its always on. anyway glad i still have mine-i hope the day comes when the music i play would be enhanced by its use-and there still is no unit in the world that does what it do.

Subject: fripp & eh16ddl (original) ?
ok-for some reason i was thinking of this from last week, when for a couple of hrs it seemed like i might be getting a reissue eh 16secDDL-but then it fell through...my question: did robert fripp ever play the original "EH 16 sec digital delay"? i know it was originally billed as a "fripp in a box", did he actually use one? i was just curious...i know little to nothing of fripps loop tool history (i just have 3 of his discs....)
damn all this talk of "dream pedals" & the random multi-effects options switch, now all
i think about is "dream pedals"
honestly-i'd just love a digital version of an actual tape loop option-something that would actually model what an analog tape loop could do. (i had
such hope for that danelectro reel echo even @ 1.5 sec)....ok, i got to get off this dream pedal thing....darn you RICK for getting me on this....
