Re: Defective EDP or defective brain?

I'm not 100% sure of this, but this sounds like the EDP is in Delay mode. You need to use the Parameters button once to edit parameters. The press the Record button. You can toggle between Loop and Delay modes by pressing the record button while in this Parameter edit status.

Hope this helps,

First I want to say thanks for all the info I've gleaned from Loopers
Delight, since you all are what convinced me to dive into looping and
the EDP.  You also turned me on to Anthony at Altos Music, where I got a
new EDP for $739, foot pedal for $99, with Fed Ex ground shipping.

So today I got my new EDP and foot controller, full 16 megs Ram, new out
of the box.

It is *not* behaving as the manual describes. I have 7 days to return it
if it is defective, but I would hate to send it back because I
misunderstand how it is supposed to work. I'm a reasonably intelligent
person, most of the time. Or maybe just the foot controller is screwy?

Using the foot controller:
I press record, record a loop, press record to end. It plays. Good.
Now, without pressing overdub, everything I play gets recorded onto the
loop. I can undo and remove it, but it continues to record everything,
as if the overdub function is switched on all the time. But the overdub
light doesn't change, just happy green.
When I press overdub and play, nothing gets recorded onto the loop. The
red overdub light does go on and off when I press the button.

Also, there is no loop number to the left in the display, just the time
length of the loop. Also, the next loop light is always orange after I
first record.
I have tried holding the parameter button down when powering up, but
this hasn't changed anything.

Is this EDP defective or am I really missing something?

I truly appreciate your help,
