Couldn't that be solved with midi note messages on a dummy midi track -
having the EDP recognize a note on message as the start of the cycle, or
defaulting to normal if it doesn't see one? This would definitely be of

site of the start of the loop. It's my biggest fear in a live situation,
since apart from rebooting the EDP, I've found no fast fix.
