RE: EDP Delay+Mute Mode Request

Hi Mattias- thanks for the reply! Sounds like it will all be ok- :)

In regards to me confusing you: I simply meant that the original idea
was discussed, then there were somewhat lenghty pauses in the thread
(imo), and then the post you made had some portions of posts from others
on the subject mixed in together. It was a bit hard for me to understand

Thanks again. I hope the weather in Oakland is as beautiful as it is in
L.A today- Cheers!

fine, you bring clairty:

that how it is
(just that in Loop3, the state of Overdub had no influence during 
Mute, which I find simply wrong now)

and its not even in question

right, but maybe the other way round:
you have a loop frozen (Overdub red)
mute it
press Overdub the loop comes back as it was but immediately fades.

Or (in some later upgrade?):
Overdub continue doing its job without touching Mute. Means that you 
can stay in Mute and decide with Overdub when you want to change it 
while its in silence.
I think it would be more interesting for the DelayMode but in general 
make things more complex and less consistent without changing that

now you confused me: what do you mean by this last sentence?
