drewski711, that sounds wonderful - he's such a genius to begin with. That said, I'm not sure I'm following correctly, please help me out: when you said echo, did you mean echo as in a singular note repeating or "answering itself" after a 6-7 second delay or did it SUSTAIN (think of it as reverb) making that note "go on and on" for 6-7 seconds after first played? Thx.
