i agree, most definitely- i let a friend play through my edp the other
night- i had to show him the basic footswitch modes, but he was off &
running in no time and came up with some pretty wild and musical
stuff...i think the basics of playing in time with your loops (and with
others), and just being creative make the most difference...of course
someone who has that down AND knows their tools inside & out can really
do some amazing shite- there seem to be lots of those kind of folks on
this list!
