RE: Stereo EDP

Wow you mean you think this will succeed and you realize that the embedded
OS is quite likely embedded Windows NT (whatever version there up to) it
only runs the PC version of VST plugins. I actually agree that something
like this is quite likely to be the next effects processor that many will 
using. I tried a dedicated PC setup but, found I could too easily run out 
memory. Of coarse some of the plugins I tried had memory leaks and could
crash the system but, with proper integration testing you could probably
weed out the bad plugins.

PLEASE.  I had a decent guitar (that I had purchased before college)  
and amp but was mostly broke during college.  There was no way I could  
have afforded an EDP at any point while I was in school.  After rent  
and tuition and supplies (art school) there was little left for gear.   
Luckily I had purchased a JamMan for $311 before I started school.  Not  
everyone gets mommy and daddy's help.  By the time I had enough money  
to buy an EDP, there was a better choice (for me) available.  The  
Repeater.  If I had to replace it, I'd get another.  My only worry is  
when there aren't any more to be had.  By that time the EDP will have  
been killed by this:


Trust me.  If not this unit, it's offspring.  Popularity will rise,  
prices will fall.  Most won't be running looper software, but that  
won't matter.  Other VSTs will help make it popular and bring the  
hardware price down and make competitors offer other VST based devices.  
  Since it's all dedicated DSP hardware it won't have issues that your  
laptop now has.  Someone will write a killer VST looper and that will  
be that.  No use arguing with me.  I'm from the future and I've seen it
