Re: fripp & eh16ddl (original) ?
This from an ETwiki: "I would run the tape back and improvise on top of it.
The original form was with two Revox tape recorders, but now I'm working
with the Electro-Harmonix 16 second Digital Delay. It was advertised as a
Fripp In The Box. It's far smaller, quicker, and easier to set up than two
Revoxes. Although, the sounds one gets are quite different. The quality I
nowhere near the same as the two Revoxes."
