More from the sampler tradition than other delay-based loopers, oriented towards DJ's. That means it's a table-top unit with features like a 4 track sequencer, 8 voice polyphony, crossfaders, tap tempo, and triggering pads. It doesn't have obvious features like overdubbing or feedback control. So once you've captured a phrase, it appears that you can't do much to it. It can resample phrases to a tapped tempo, no idea if it can do it in real time. Switchable sample rates, with only 32khz being the top. With 2MB you get 30 seconds mono, 15 seconds stereo. With the 18MB upgrade (expandable with ordinary simms), you get 292 seconds mono, 146 seconds stereo. Optional scsi port. Appears to be designed for real-time use.... I've got some user comments below, anyone have more comments?
