I am planning to buy a Ditto X4 (although i hope some of the bugs mentioned in recent posts will be ironed out).
What I am hoping for in the future is that it will be able to auto-record: i.e., put it into Standby mode, then it starts recording as soon as you play a note (whose loudness is above a preselected threshold). I did this all the time with my Echoplex Digital Pro, it saved me having to hit the record button exactly when I start to play, which sometimes misses.
Could such a function be created via a firmware update - or might it require the creation of a new model?
Anyway, it's a must-have, as far as I'm concerned!
