Re: looping up the wall...
Getting angry won't help.
I've been slaving my EDP to MIDI sync exclusively for the past few years,
with no trouble. Jon makes a good point - are you leaving overdub open
long periods of time?
I don't quite remember the details regarding endless overdubs (I generally
only overdub short passages), but I do remember hearing that in Loop mode
you need to take it out of overdub periodically. Maybe in Delay mode you
don't (?) - I can't quite remember.
You just need to punch out and then back into overdub during a silent
every so often.
