RE: Citations needed for Wikipedia

I am really not good at Wikipedia and am learning- but maybe if any of the
documents could be put online to then be used as citations?
Hope all is well.

wow, finally the EDP comes back to wikipedia?
last week I had to clean out a pile of faxes and scanned the communication
with Gibson/Oberheim between 1993 and 1996, maybe those prove something?

major development and innovation in the technique of audio looping (see

though retaining the Echoplex name does not retain any of the electro
mechanical design of the original, ie. the analog tape loop. The website

was created by the EDP co-developer Kim Flint and still hosts an active
email list. (Information for this section was gathered from the web pages
linked in this section and from emails exchanged with Matthias Grob. See
