Brave New EDP

Hey guys--
Check it out--the new OS is going to have PRESETS!  Sysx is swell but it
looks like you can store your options in slots and call them up with 
changes.  I call that real good news. (EDP finally using p ch!)
I can't wait for this!!!!

could you explain why sysex is more flexible and more efficient?
it seems like it will be more difficult to program a pedal.
won't we have to enter binary data for each switch?
and aren't midi controller's designed for just this purpose?
