Q. Permanent loop storage?
A. The III loses its mind when power is removed; no loops are saved. However, your parameter settings are preserved.
Q. MIDI sync?
A. Why, yes. Don't mind if I do. The III can sync to an external MIDI clock, and responds to the MIDI Start and Stop commands. It's possible to sync multiple IIIs to an external clock. Recently I had a drum machine playing along with EIGHT loops on two IIIs. It was all in glorious sync, and I could start and stop the entire "orchestra" from the drum machine.
Q. Recording time?
A. Sampling at 48KHz, the III records for 8 minutes 46 seconds in mono. Sampling at 24KHz, the time is 17 minutes 32 seconds. Record with 24KHz sampling and Octave active (half-speed), and recording time is over 35 minutes. Stereo recording cuts all times in half.
A. The III has 64MB of memory and it is not expanable.
Q. Compact flash cards?
A. There is no card slot for removable media.
Q. Will the Rang™ III improve my sex life?

Q. Playing multiple loops?
A. Yes, the III can play 4 loops at once, either synced or completely independent of each other.
