    Hey ,

    Just got a Gibson Echoplex Digital Pro and Foot Control from MF....good deal, too.......well, maybe.

    I'm new to the EDP, but not to looping.

    I'm having a problem making loops with swells and dynamics. The EDP works fine when I play a strong rhythmic figure, but when I do volume swells or soft passages, it cuts off the playback when the input level gets too low. In other words, say I volume swell in a chord.......on playback, it cuts off the beginning of the swell and end of it. The loop is the entire length I recorded, but you only HEAR the louder sections. Kind of sucks.

    I'm using my strat straight into the EDP, then right out to the amp. I have the input set so it's green and only only goes orange when I nail it.

    Any ideas?

    - jim

    PS....the UNDO function seems a little hinky, too........so, I may have a lemon.

    You may want to also ask this on the Looper's Delight mailing list, where the designers of the EDP reside.

    You might need to turn up the input... I think there is some kind of gate in it. I would do an archive search at loopers delight: http://www.loopers-delight.com/cgi-bin/wilma/LDarchive

    Jim, let us know what you find out, yeah?

    You just reminded me I need to look into replacing a couple front panel knobs on my old one that went missing in transit somehow....
