If there's one thing with modern gear, it's that you have to
REALLY read and learn to LOVE the manual and go over and over
it before you can understand the piece.
I don't mean something like the Line6 DL4, mind you, I've never
really read the manual too carefully and I have a great time
with the unit just by experimenting.
But something like an EDP, or even more, an Eventide/Orville/Kyma...
you gotta read the manual until it's dog-eared!
(and the same goes for sound machines like a Kurzweil...)
