yes  each loop has its own ram space ---undo

I can happen but would be called a bug (lot of triggers, undos,and 
windowing )
pleasant when the RAM is full of something, upleasant when you just booted 
and you read an empty RAM space  CRRRSHHHTTKKRR
you can even attaign a disfunction of the EDP where the memory is read 
A to Z  when this happens you sit down and enjoy, you wont have that sort 
buggy poetry in a vst plug never

these are NOT every day bugs so dont use this post to pretend the EDP is
