The EDP came to life with some 20k$ of my parents, a tremendous
effort with a simple life standard of mine, cheap help from Eric,
free advise from looper friends, some smaller investment of Gibson (I
have no idea how much, but far from a million) to expand the LOOP
delay to the EDP and a big free effort of Kim to keep it alive and
improve/debug the soft. This story cannot be looped.
Unfortunately the unit was often manufactured insufficiently or not
at all during the years it was fresh and without competiton and no
savings were made to develop the next version. I would find it fair
of Gibson to correct this failure by investing into a new HW now.
Possibly they do so...
