Re: Re: Any news on LP-2, anyone?

It's good to see this updated info. on the LP-2 (and also in some of the more recent forum posts)...

However, some of the specific info. I'm looking for seems to not be available yet.  So I was wondering if any LP-2 users/testers here could enlighten me:

1) The 'Usage Guide' (at http://looperlative.posterous.com/ ) talks about being able to mix the dry vs. looped signal. The best image I can find ( http://www.musikmachen.de/var/musikmachen/storage/images/equipment/news/zwei-neue-looper-von-looperlative/2094668-2-ger-DE/Zwei-neue-Looper-von-Looperlative_front_page_teaser.jpg ) seems to show one 1/4" input and one 1/4" output. So I'm wondering if the output is stereo (like on my RiffBox)? I *need* the ability to feed a guitar signal in and always split the output, so that 1 side is 100% loop (which can go to further processing) while the other side is 100% dry (i.e. my guitar playing - which can go to separate effects processing).

2) The Usage Guide says that "Using the SDHC card for audio storage results in a few rules about audio recording and overdubbing". The most interesting of these is that some SD cards may not be fast enough to read the incoming audio. This begs the question of whether it's possible to not record to the SD card (say if you don't want to retrieve your loop later).  Is there a mode where you simply record your loop straight into the pedal, which can play the loop back with 100% reliability?

3) Can the MIDI out port also be configured as a Thru?  Since I'd always be synching the LP-2 to a drum machine's MIDI clock, I'd like to pass the MIDI clock through to another effects processor.

4) What are the dimensions of the LP-2?

Thanks for any additional info. that can be given on this beguiling box!

They've really been holding up well and they have to work, I"m going to
do my entire performance
with them at Y2K12 in two weeks time

People will also be able to play with the LP-2 when Rick demonstrates it at the "Touch the Loopers" event (Oct 18).
