Re: EDP sync question
I'm not sure if I'm understanding this functionality in Loop4. Here's my
If I've got a clock coming from a sequencer and I record a 4 measure loop
it stay synched even if I add a few bars with insert? (with quantize set to
on, of course) I thought the answer was no, but my head was being
so much at Andre's talk at Kims, I wouldn't be surprised if I'm totally
What if I make a new loop of 5 bars, will it still be in synch? Stay in
when I go back to my first loop of four bars? (again, with quantize on)
toggle between without having to realign?

Well, I guess I'm waiting for the EDP to become a bigger part of my looping
world. To be honest, aside from experimentation I have not really used it
lot. I tried to fool around with it on monday, but the reboot/eprom
issue foiled my plans, and I didn't feel like trying to deal with it at
time. Until I can afford to buy another and run it in stereo, it won't be
main part of my studio rig, and I haven't been playing live all that much,
though I do have a Noisefest in Sacremento coming up, as well as Matt's
Object show coming as well. Combine that with the cost of my Sustainiac
over double what I had budgeted, and there's my music gear money for a
while. I think that when I go for another EDP, I'll end up getting two
upgrades at that time, but that's still a way off.
