RE: Ensoniq DP/4

I also have one and I've not had any problems with it.  As for being noisy,
no mine doesn't seem to be that bad unless any of the distortion effects 
on, and the phaser seems to have a small bit of hiss to it.

The big thing you'll want to watch out for in this is that you do put it to
an eq of some kind and how you have it set up in your signal chain.
Typically, I like to use mine for a Reverb box, so it's towards the end of
the chain, but before the Boomerang.

Tap on, gliss extended, loop out,

I've read that the DP/4 is a great box, but it's noisy (which makes it not
such a great box for me).

Can anyone speak to this?
