Re: Looper development and production costs?

hope i don't step on anybody's toes or sense of 'design',  but this 
talk of redesigning the echoplex faceplate seems pretty dern silly, 
IMHO.  jeepers, you've got the best flexible/improvisational delay 
and looper there is in the EDP, and it's been doing its thing for 10 
years now, with committed people continuing to update the software. 
It's a unique beast/instrument.

and now the faceplate is bad?  or at least, not good enough to grab a 
potential buyer's attention well enough to secure a sale?


no kid browsing through Guitar Center is gonna buy (or not buy) a 
fricking EDP because of the faceplate, any more than they are going 
to buy a Waldorf over a Novation because they like the color more. 
High end equipment is bought because it does the job you need it to 
do, and the interface works for the you, no matter how ugly it is 
(wow, that Moog modular looks slick with all them wires and shit! 
gotta get me one now just cuz it looks cool!  how much is it dude?)

and if your edp needs to have a black faceplate with different 
graphics...well, i'm sure there's a screenprinting shop in your area 
that would be more than happy to provide you a quote for doing a 

i would guess it would probably be somewhere in the $200+ range, and 
i'm sure your edp playing performance ability will increase 
significantly because of this.  and all those fans that have been 
previously ignoring you will suddenly be aware of that wonderful new 
piece of gear in your rack and endless fawn over you.

c'mon, get real and make some music.
