RE: PMC10 "Long press" - and a EDP and Repeater example.

Thanks for the info!

How is that this mimics a long press? I can't seem to wrap my mind around
it. Does it demand a minimal time for holding the pedal down? If not,
couldn't you have those 2 lines in String A and have String B do something

Not an answer but FWIW: If you have Repeater in Midi mode and slaved it 
play as soon as you switch loops. I have one set of pedals that changes the
loops in the EDP and Repeater simultaneously (eg choose Loop n EDP and Loop
n RPTR, etc), with EDP as master clock. I hardly notice the 1/2 second, not
sure its there in this situation. Thats one of the coolest things I've 
using these together. The RPTR will change tempo and start with EDP new
loops and Loop number changes.

But I haven't found a way to enter a Repeater new loop and start recording
with one pedal action, as you say.
