Re: No MIDI from EDP buttons

    Hi John
Ill have a try

(I dont know the mpc)

from  each edp midi out you should have the note ons duplicated from the
footped or front pushes [ Control source NOT]

no prob

this is a MPC setting problem search for midi thru and deactivate it

Midi loop again your feeding the messages back to the edp that will comme
back to the fcb etc

you main problem is you want to have all the master/slave possibilities
without unplugging any cable wich I think will not work soo easyly as you
also have midi clock to provide everywhere and the either the edp or the 
could  be master of  sync and /or master of  button pushes
without a programmable midi patch bay ( with message filtering ) you will
not be able to go from one situation to the other without unplugging

here's a simple way

fcb out , edp1 in, edp1 out, edp 2 in, edp 2 out, mpc1 in, ////////mpc out,
fcb in

edp sync out mpc sync slave
you must disable any midi thru on the mpc

and mute the track you're recording to while you're recording  OR a MIDI
loop will occur

good luck
