(Re-opening an old topic...)

I'm building an RC-20 emulation with my Looper Construction Kit for Kyma.  
figure I can simultaneously emulate 4 to 9 RC-20s on a 4 DSP Kyma.  They 
be interconnected in any fashion (series or parallel).  I'll know more as I
get into it.

I don't have a real RC-20 so I have to do this from the manual description.
I'll probably make several RC-20 emulations or at least a full-featured one
and an "RC-20 Lite" that is less filling and with fewer calories.

In the meantime, my question to you multiple RC-20 owners is, "What 
do you use?"  and conversely, "What features do you NOT use?"
