Re: new EDP question

I wonder if your feedback pot could be to blame?  On my older Oberheim
EDP, it used to work perfectly, but now even if I turn the pot WAY down
it won't always decay, and when it does it's unpredictable.  I'm almost
sure it's a bad pot on mine.  If your pot has a manufacturing defect, it
might not be telling the machine to feedback 100%.

I believe an external feedback pedal should let you test this theory, or
for an even better test, you can probably just short a cable to the
feedback jack.
