99% of my looping work has been using the DL4 - which does not have an 
UNDO feature or feedback controls... I've just learnt not to make 
mistakes when I play, or when I do, I've found ways to <cough> hide 
them and make them 'deliberate parts of the performance' :)

The stereo side of looping does not interest me that much, but if you 
had two EchoPro's listening to the same 1010, with the second unit 
connected to the firsts' midi out (acting as Midi thru), or both 
running off of a Midi Thru box, then it should work ok. As long as both 
units received the midi signals at the same time, then there shouldn't 
be any drifting....

Re: the $199 price that Mark commented on, over here in Europe the 
price is, as always, much more expensive. I'd never sell on Ebay or 
ship something to someone through the post. I've had many problems 
doing that in the past... In fact, every shipment I've made or received 
over the past 2 years have had problems of some sort. I think the EDP 
is roughly $1200 in the UK, and non-existent here in France.
