Re: making the switch from Repeater to Ableton Live

Yes, I'v also noticed that sending the Repeater a group of midi 
messages from the FCB1010 by one button press is actually working a bit 
by random. It seams as the Repeater behaves differently depending on 
which order the mid bites do arrive and maybe the FCB send them out in 
different order depending on which bank was active before you pressed 
the "multi function button" (just my wild guess here).

I like to use the EDP as midi clock master (both for Repeater and for 
Ableton Live) since I find the EDP rock stable. If everything else 
crash you can actually make a concert with only the EDP. So, in a way 
the EDP makes a good "emergency escape" (always running straight into 
the sound system and never through any other gear, sound card etc)

All the best
