continued (sort of) from http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=697865 i love loopers. i hate taking up all that pedalboard space, and most of them have way more features then i want. i like the Zvex Lo-Fi Loop Junky a lot, but it's way too expensive and i don't care about the vibrato. i was talking to Taylor Livingston (Iron Ether) about his take on that idea and he said he could do one but the time and design inlay means he would want at least 5 orders. i really want this bugger, and i think it's a cool idea, so if anybody else wants to commit to buying one this is what the specs would be.... Enclosure - same box the Oxide comes in, oriented sideways Buttons - 2 -> Right = RECORD, Left = START/BYPASS Knobs - TONE, VOLUME, SAMPLE BUTTONS = click record to start recording, and press it again to stop recording and go into playback mode. press play to put it in bypass, then press it again to begin playback from the beginning (play retriggers the sample). the SAMPLE knob would work on the recorded loop - if you turn it down a bit you get longer record time and a more grainy lo fi sound, record at high sample rate and then turn it down to playback your sample slower and lower in pitch (or record at low rate, then turn it up to get fast chipmunk stuff). TONE and VOLUME knobs would also effect the loop, not the original signal. i started a thread asking the same question, did have some interest, but i think this is a more concise description at the top. i'm not connected to Mr. Livingston or Iron Ether in any way (besides my love of his products and a slight crush on him). he did not ask me to post this thread. the price would be in line with Taylor's current offerings. i'll discuss the price through PM. his build time is dependent on how busy he is... "Things are ever-changing at IE so depending on what's going on at the time this begins, the build time could be 1 month or 3 months. If we started right now, it would probably be around 3 months.".
