This is a great functionality! I always keep one midi expression  
pedal mapped to volume on the FireworX processor I'm usually playing  
through. But I'm not using that pedal for stuttering, more to prevent  
(or get the right amount of) acoustic feedback when playing flute or  
sax through distortion (or swell in guitar notes). But I have created  
some patches that "stutter" (i.e. tremolo like) on different rhythms  
of the midi clock tempo. For "manual stuttering into EDP loop" I keep  
a FCB button constantly mapped to "Overdub SUS".

This thread have inspired me to try to also cram a "direct instrument  
line on/off" button into my set-up. Especially when playing guitar  
it's nice to have the machine gun effect handy and eventually loop  
the whole thing (monophonic instruments make more sense to me if  
"stuttered" after being looped into chords or clusters).
