Re: Stereo EDP
Hummmm....Gerry's message regarding his stereo EDP operational problems
me think about how stereo operation works for the EDP...
Using the EFC-7 footswitch (or equivalent) or front panel switch, you tap
RECORD on the master EDP. The master sends a MIDI note-on/off to the slave
to start recording. Likewise, to stop recording, you tap RECORD on the
master EDP and it sends a MIDI note-on/off to the slave to stop the
Since MIDI commands take about 1 millisecond (a little less actually) to
transmit, doesn't this mean that there is a phase difference between the
left and right channel? I.e., the slave signal will be shifted in phase
with respect to the right.
Even with *real* clever programming, this characteristic would be hard to
On the other hand, if you used a MIDI footswitch to trigger the EDPs, both
master and slave would recieve the RECORD commands simultaneously resulting
in no phase error.
Conclusion: For "perfect" stereo looping with the EDP, use a MIDI
Does this make sense? Kim? Matthias?
