Re: Y2K

I'm sorry to report that we've discovered a curious Y2K bug in our Echoplex
code. Seems that pressing Multiply, Insert, and Undo simultaneously with
SamplerStyle=ATT, exactly at the stroke of midnight for Y2K causes the
available loop memory to triple. No kidding! We don't understand this bug
at all, and are working desperately to fix it in time. I suggest that,
rather than take a chance, you should turn your echoplex off during this
period, drink heavily, and try to kiss as many people as possible while the
fireworks are going off. That should keep your echoplex safe. That's what
I'm going to do....
