Oh yes, I forgot! The FCB1010 can only send out one midi note at a time,
over one midi channel. And the EDP has to be controlled by midi not on -

Dammit - what a usable feature! Hope "Reverse Overdub" will make it into
How about "Reverse Insert"?
"Reverse Overdub" would be very useful for percussionists. I would like
it also to be affected quantise and rounding settings. Then you could be
able to overdub just one "reversed snare drum hit" (length defined by
the 8th/cycle) in a longer loop. But then it would have to sort under
the Insert and not the Overdub.

Wow! You sure got some nice ideas to play around with over there ;-)
Can you post your findings? Matters like these are bouncing a lot inside
my head these days, but I have only one EDP here so I can never try it
